The room rates at Trump's hotels have fallen an average of 36% since his inauguration last winter.

here is further evidence that Donald Trump’s occupation of the Oval Office has had a negative impact on his business empire, with new research showing that average room rates have fallen by as much as 63 per cent at all but one of his 13 hotels. Hardest hit was Trump Las Vegas. The average cost of a two-night stay in a standard double room during January 2017, just before his inauguration, was priced at £637, according to analysis by FairFX, the currency provider. But a two-night break in January 2018, one year on, can be secured for just £237.

The Trump brand has become radioactive in its toxicity. People do not want to be associated with it.

“Several factors may be at play. The strong dollar has reduced tourism to the US generally, for example. But there have been falls in his hotels in Scotland and Vancouver too, and these price cuts are so significant, that it seems likely that many potential guests have been put off by the association with the controversial policies, tweets and opinions of the current US president.”
