We already knew that Trump Models was “hemorrhaging” both models and managers looking to distance themselves from the Trump brand. Today, Mother Jones reports that the agency will be shutting down altogether. Trump Models joins a graveyard of defunct Trump vanity businesses including Trump Steaks, Trump University, Trump Airlines, and Trump Magazine. The President himself still owns an 85 percent stake in the business (begins playing world’s smallest violin).
The news came via a leaked internal email from Trump Models president Corinne Nicolas.”The Trump Organization is choosing to exit the modeling industry,” she wrote. “On the heels of the recent sale of the Miss Universe Organization, the company is choosing to focus on their core businesses in the real estate, golf and hospitality space.”
Without his modeling agency and Miss Universe, where will Trump go to see beautiful women change? Sad!
