Just how many failed businesses has dipshit had?

Most have heard about the bankruptcies here in the U.S. but what about the failed businesses world wide. He seems to left a trail of destruction all over. Here is a link for the Trump Ocean Resort Baja Mexico.


I wonder how many more failed ventures are hanging around.

I have been looking around some. Gawker had what they called a complete list but didn't list Baja so appearently not complete. Also Newsweek had a list. Also doesn't seem complete. Not sure if there is enough space on the internet to list all his failures.

Here's those 2 articles

it would make an interesting list. I find the man to be nothing more than a loudmouth failure and have thought of him that way since I first heard of him in the 1980's.

I've never seen such a cognitive disconnection as I have in this POTUS campaign with Trump. These same people who, in past elections, slammed the Democratic candidates over extramarital affairs, service in the military (or lack thereof), position on abortion, business experience, etc. are embracing Trump, who is all of the characteristics they've used against the Democratic candidates on steroids.

Where he is only involved as a brand name I wonder how many will be getting rid of the trump name on their buildings/projects?

Examples of ones he may have problems with his comments on Muslims. Both have already had some problems with the branding. I'm not sure whether vandalism or intentionally removed, but some stuff with his name has already been removed in Dubai.

Trump towers Istanbul
The palm Trump international hotel and tower Dubai

I haven't traced down very many of his other branded ventures. But have a feeling his "Brand" is taking a nose dive.
