The article does not say.
Oh it certainly does:

"From golf fees and licensing deals to prices for Trump condos, many metrics used to gauge his business in the first two years of his presidency are down as the divisive comments and policies so beloved by his political base have turned off a group just as dear to him — the affluent who fuel his businesses."

More here:

"President Donald Trump appears to have earned less from his vast financial empire last year as licensing royalties, rents and golf revenues fell at some properties, his financial disclosure shows.

Trump’s income was at least $421.3 million, according to the document released today by the Office of Government Ethics, down from $452.6 million he reported the year before."

Trump’s business earnings decline as revenue at Mar-a Lago falls

Please keep going though. Your continued willful denial is fun to illustrate.

Further down in the article:


"..Trump’s businesses still hauled in at least $453 million in revenue last year, according to the president’s financial disclosure."
Did you read the last part of that sentence. Every other thing coming out of his mouth is a lie. Do you really expect this to be different?

After all the recent attacks on women's right to an abortion in the last week, expect it to fall even more. The right has crossed a serious line. And they're going to pay for it.

So his business is down 7% That's all. He is the President of the United States and on top of that he has business assets and they only went down that modest percentage? Seems in the realm of normal fluctuation if you ask me. Obviously he is not engaged in his business.

And yet, his businesses are declining. But you ignored that, didn't you? Market watch has no agenda, they're a business group. Wow, you just can't acknowledge reality, can you?

By your measure, you probably think that Sears is doing OK, since they still seem to sell stuff.

Trump businesses are on a downward trend. What we have been able to gather from tax records in the 90s, show that the guy lost billions of dollars. Nobody in the US will lend him money either. Now why do you think that is?

What, the CEO stepped away to take on another venture and proffits declined? You don't say?

According to the Dumbster we're in the middle of THE BEST ECONOMY in decades. For a business to be OFF in such a "tremendous economy" something must be wrong.

The FACT is, people can't sell their apartments in Trumps towers, both Las Vega and NYC, even though their prices are 20% BELOW market value. Some owners are actually going to LOSE money after living there for a decade or more. Trump tower NYC has more than 40,000 sqft of office space than can't rent, again even though the asking price is 20% below other buildings in the area. It's only turning a profit due to his own campaign reniting out space. Even then the revenue is 26% below projections he used to get loans from the bank. His golf resorts have seen a major decline in membership and usage. Both of his Scottish courses are losing more then a million dollar per year. Trump's Doral course in Florida is down almost 70%. The hotel in Panama simply removed his name and became a Marriott.

The TRUTH is we have a robust economy. The very kind of economy that usually feeds luxury resorts and sell high end apartments. But Trump enterprises is NOT participating in that robust economy.
