Trump Tower in Canada Went Bankrupt Only 4 Years After Opening

Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: November of 2016
Categories: Donald Trump
After only four years since it's grand opening, the Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto was placed into receivership by a Canadian bankruptcy judge, meaning the 65-story building will be auctioned off. Regardless of who ends up purchasing the tower, many Canadians want the TRUMP name to be removed from the building. In December 2015, Toronto City Councillor implored developers to remove the Trump name, writing, "To have the Trump name displayed so prominently on our skyline signals a tacit acceptance of hateful and divisive views."
