A Vancouver city councillor is recommending people avoid buying things at the Trump tower to hit Donald Trump in the wallet.
Kerry Jang says he is disappointed after the developer, Holburn, decided not to end its relationship with Trump and remove his name from the high-rise development, after the Republican presidential hopeful said all Muslims should be barred from entering the U.S. — even tourists.
“The Trump group will be actually running the restaurant and hotel. I am saying to people vote with your feet. Don’t go there, don’t send your friends there. Matter of fact, I have had a number of event planners already call me and say we are recommending to our clients not to use the Trump towers. The only way of getting rid of the Trump name right now is to make sure he loses money and he will leave on his own. That is what we want to see.”
Jang says the city is beyond the point where it can exert much influence on the development.
