    Another Trump-branded building has decided to take down the president’s name

    Another Trump-branded building has decided to take down the president’s name

    The residents of a Manhattan condominium called “Trump Place” have voted to remove the president’s namefrom the tower’s facade, the latest in a string of properties that have distanced themselves from the Trump brandsince Election Day 2016.

    Unit owners in the Upper West Side building, a 46-story tower at 200 Riverside Blvd., were informed of the decision to remove the signs Wednesday afternoon in an email from the condo board.

    According to the email, 69.3 percent of owners who participated in a vote in September and early October said they were in favor of taking down President Trump’s name. As a result, the board said, it had “passed a resolution to remove the Signage.”
    ...

    In that initial survey, about 63 percent said yes. But then the board got a letter from Alan Garten, chief legal officer for the Trump Organization.

    “Please be advised that [removing the signs] would constitute a flagrant and material breach of the License Agreement,” Garten wrote in March 2017. He said that if the board made any effort to remove the sign, the Trump Organization “will have no choice but to commence appropriate legal proceedings.”

    Garten said that a licensing agreement signed in 2000, in which the building agreed to pay Trump $1 for the use of his name, prevented the signs from ever coming down.

    To force the issue, the board sued the Trump Organization instead — and quickly won.
    I thought Trump NEVER, EVER loses in court???

    Maybe if he got the Saudi's to buy out all the units, they would put Trump's name back on the building? After all, the Saudi's are bailing out his hotels with lengthy stays.

    So the condo gets to use Trump's name for $1 when the residents thought Trump was one of them. Talk about an incredible discount. Then the residents decide they don't like Trump and decide to take down the sign. Maybe Trump should sue them to recoup what the actual licensing rate was at the time?

    Anyway, this is a story? A bunch of effing libtards doing what we expect effing libtards to do?

    Trump probably doesn't give a damn one way or the other.
    He has bigger fish to fry.

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Maybe Trump would manage to have a judge works for his side to control that area?
