Trump’s toxic brand has caused Trump Tower condo prices to crash: No one wants to buy ‘in that building’

Published

on

President Donald Trump is not a popular man in his home state of New York — and condo prices at his signature Trump Tower in Manhattan are reflecting just how toxic his brand has become.

Bloomberg News reports that most of the Trump Tower condos that have gone on the market since 2016 have been sold at a lost. In fact, property records show that “several” Trump Tower condos have sold at losses of more than 20 percent.

Michael Sklar, who sold his parents’ Trump Tower condo at a loss when adjusted for inflation, tells Bloomberg that it’s very hard for condo owners to find willing buyers.

“No one wants in that building,” he explained. “The name on the building became a problem.”

In total, Bloomberg found that Trump Tower’s occupancy rate has plunged from 99 percent to just 83 percent over the past seven years, meaning it has “a vacancy rate that’s about twice Manhattan’s average.”

However, the building is still staying afloat financially thanks in part to the Trump 2020 campaign committee spending in the building. According to Bloomberg, the committee “has spent more than $890,000 over the last two years to rent space in Trump Tower.”

Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."

Votes had been urged by RNC officials and Trump himself had urged his 66 million Twitter followers to vote for Spicer.

Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.

Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.

Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!

Published

on

Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.

Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."

"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.

"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.

She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
