Trump Hotel bookings plunge online as other companies enjoy growth

Published

on

Donald Trump promises to “make America great again” if he’s elected president — but he might have a problem making Americans want to stay at his hotels again after his obnoxious campaign is over.

The presumed Republican presidential nominee has slapped his name onto all sorts of products and buildings — but it appears that Trump’s hateful campaign rhetoric may be damaging the Trump business brand, reported Priceonomics.

The website found that bookings at Trump Hotels’ most popular destinations have declined by 59 percent compared to last year.

Priceonomics analyzed hotel data from Hipmunk, one of the website’s customers and a travel search engine, and found that Trump Hotels’ six most-popular locations had been exempt from the overall increase in hotel bookings compared to last year.

“It seems that customers willing to spend $500 a night on a Trump Hotel room may not be fans of Trump the political candidate,” the website reported.

Trump Hotels made up 1.7 percent of all Hipmunk bookings last year in the major cities where they are located, but customers have been staying away in droves over the past three months, compared with the same three-month period last year.

His hotels in New York City and Las Vegas have seen their share of each city’s total bookings drop by more than 70 percent, and the Trump Hotel in Toronto has seen its share drop by 47 percent, while the one in Chicago has dropped by 31 percent.

Even in Atlantic City, where Trump Hotels have the highest percentage of a city’s total bookings, the Trump Taj Mahal has lost 17 percent of its market share.

Hipmunk’s customers tend to be younger and more urban than other customers, and Trump hasn’t fared especially well among that demographic.

But for now, at least, it appears Trump the politician might not be helping Trump the businessman.

The View’s Meghan McCain turns on Fauci after blaming him for resurgence of COVID-19 — then gets schooled by Whoopi Goldberg

Published

"The View's" Meghan McCain confessed that she has "turned" on Dr. Anthony Fauci.

During Thursday's show, the co-hosts addressed the new InStyle profile on Fauci, who has been barred from appearing on TV. Joy Behar loved the photo because it showed off his Italian heritage and how tough he is.

"I thank god every day that there are some adults left who are looking out for us," she said. "So, I thank Fauci. I thank even Mitt Romney for standing up when every coward in that Republican leadership has said nothing. Radio silence about every sin committed by [Trump]. I thank Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. I'm so happy there are a few adults left, and Fauci is one of them, and I want him to speak out more. Let's not -- this is worth repeating: Are you going to trust an ivy league educated epidemiologist like Fauci or somebody who tells you to drink bleach and face the sunlight to kill the virus? I mean, really."

Trump ‘knows he’s losing’ – but can’t entirely fire Brad Parscale because ‘he knows too much’: report

Published

on

President Trump demoted his campaign manager Brad Parscale as new polling shows him losing in five swing states. According to an analysis from Axios, it's a significant development because it signifies that Trump knows that he's losing.

Parscale played a large role in Trump's 2016 win as the architect of his digital strategy. According to Axios' report, there's a reason that Parscale will remain on Team Trump despite his demotion.

"Trump really can't fire Brad: He knows too much, and he built the digital infrastructure the campaign relies on," Axios states.

As Axios points out, Bill Stepien, a Trump loyalist and longtime GOP operative, will be taking Parscale's place. "Stepien worked on Trump's 2016 campaign, then was White House political director before moving to the campaign."
