Trump has a business agreement with the Dogan Group in Turkey that allows for the group to call their building Trump Towers.
Trump has supposedly had at least one chat where he has brought up the names of the some of the leadership of this business highly praising them after he won the election..
and well, this is where the problem comes in...
remember that turkish coup that too place not that long ago? remember the turkish imman that turkey demanded the US deliver to them??
well, a high ranking executive of the Dogan Group, Barbaros Muratoğlu has been arrested by the turkish gov't for connections to the group they accuse of instigating the coup.

www.hurriyetdailynews.com...

which all leads to this:



I am having trouble validating much of this, I have found the article that Barbaros Muratoğlu has been arrested, but nothing about Dogan or his son in law. of which I believe that his son in law has resigned as the ceo of the company because of a email hacking that portrayed him in a rather negative way..

www.middleeasteye.net...

I suppose time might give us a clue as to weather or not turkey has arrested anyone in hopes that it will pressure Trump into sending the Imman back to turkey... but it is an interesting story.

here's the Newsweek story MSNBC is talking about ...

beware of the "according to an investigation by Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald" part !!!

Could be a fake news set-up !!

Newsweek: Turkey Uses Trump's Business Ties for Political Leverage


Turkey may be trying to use President-elect Donald Trump’s business interests as a way to force the extradition of Fethullah Gulen, a Muslim cleric blamed for inciting a military coup on July 15, according to a report in Newsweek magazine.

The Middle Eastern country this month arrested Barbaros Muratoglu, a senior executive with ties to the Trump Organization, in an effort to put political pressure on the next U.S. chief executive, the magazine said.

Muratoglu works at Dogan Holding, a leading industrial conglomerate that built the Trump Towers buildings in Istanbul. He was detained by police on Dec. 1 on “threadbare allegations” according to an investigation by Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald.

Thanks for the bias speculation. As far as im concerned the last thing in trumps mind is a guy who owns a tower with his name on it. Just like the Trump tower in Atlantic city. Trump doesnt own it, nor does he have anything to do with it. The building came with the name.

but something may have already happened, trump was elected and then in a phone conversation opened his mouth up to the turkish president revealing this tie he has with the Dogan company, and now some poor executive may have been imprisoned on trump up terrorist charges...

his name on that building gives him an income, it wasn't a one time payment I am sure.
and the turkish president has been pressuring the dogan company to take his name off of the building for awhile now.

You mean they had no idea the TRUMP name this company used was in relation to him? You actually think that? They called their building Trump Towers. That would be like being surprised to learn Obamacare has something to do with President Obama.

obviously they knew, since I believe they were pressuring them to take the name off before the election because of some of the things trump was saying, but...
the opportunity to use that connection wasn't that apparent till the election produced trump as the winner..
and it's quite possible that something trump said make the president feel that there was more to the tie than just business..

This is just the beginning of trouble around Trump's business interests. This is why he needs to fully divest! Handing everything over to his children, who are involved in White House issues too, is unacceptable.

It might be called "Trump Towers", but it's not just a name. It operates more like "Trumpcare", since the whole business model Trump uses is that you get to put his name on your building to signify that your property is being managed by the "Trump Group", following the quality standards established by Trump, so all your customers can expect that high standard of service from renting, leasing, buying, condos, suites, apts, whatever in your building.

Trump "Licenses his brand" with oversight, and consulting. Which is what earns him the big fees. And this is the business the Trump son's are to take over.


He does provide "Trump Care".

Right????

And, if and/or when Trump's foreign or domestic namesake business is attacked, will that be an act of war against the USA? Is the USA military now bound to protect President Trump's foreign and domestic properties and businesses like they're government property?

Or they believe it because of voting discrepancies which will never be checked.
