Another one "bites the dust"?

Trump brand loses lustre with affluent

The Republican nominee for president is in danger of losing not just the election, but something dear to a man who claims the marketing value of his name alone is worth $3 billion: the many customers, mostly wealthy, who have stayed at his hotels, played a round at his golf courses or held galas at his oceanside resorts.

Experts say the Trump brand is tarnished and at a tricky crossroads as his appeal shifts from the well-heeled, high-income people he has long courted to a more middle-class base, including the fervent fans he cultivated during the campaign.


He's lowered HIS standards?

I guess all his elite friends have figured him out.

With probable investigations

into the Clinton Foundation, including audits, I wonder how many of HER affluent 'friends' will keep donating or shun her altogether in order to avoid being investigated themselves?

Back to Trump......his brand will be fine.

As will hilLIARy?

Face it....there isn't anything you can 'throw' at Trump that doesn't reflect back on her, JP.....They've both been successful regarding money and wealth.....The only difference is that hers has all been through corruption and possibly illegal.

TheRUMP comes out "fine' and the people that helped him "build" his empire come out on the short end of the stick?

I guess he needs a larger base(the American taxpayer).

A "change" is as good as a "rest"?

More of the same, just with a different conductor?

Perhaps you've become a fellow billionaire?

You think the people of Haiti

that her foundation was supposed to be helping didn't come out on the short end of that 'charitable' stick? Even the LSMedia has reported that she gave very little to the people compared to what she took in on their behalf. The people that came out on the 'short end of the stick' with Trump were INVESTORS who take risks every day with their investors....some win, some lose. That's the very definition of 'investing'.....perhaps Dem voters should listen to their candidates when they talk about 'investing' in this and that and finally realize that THEY pick the winners and losers in that game, and the PEOPLE are the ones that ALWAYS lose with them.....their CRONIES are the only winners in that 'investment' game they play.
