The Trump Brand, Post-Presidential Race

It will be interesting to see whether Trump's increasingly outrageous presidential campaign ends up hurting his business interests after this is all over. I can't imagine that he will ever be allowed back on The Apprentice. He risks getting shunned by the business press. Because Trump likes to plaster his name all over the buildings he owns, he might have difficulty keeping tenants.

Sure wingnut welfare will pick up some of the slack. But now that Trump has tarred his brand with so many controversies, I just don't see him being able to go back to his old shtick when this presidential race is finally over.
