A UK travel website has made the bold decision to remove all hotels owned by the self-funded US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump from its pages, in a bid to encourage others to follow suit.
By the time he arrives in the UK to officially open his developed property, The Turnberry Hotel in South-West Scotland on June 24th, all of Donald Trump’s hotels currently featured on travel cashback site EarnAway.com will have been removed in a bid to encourage other travel companies to follow suit and help halt the self-funded billionaire’s political aspirations.
The founders of the site, which allows its members to earn cashback on their hotel bookings, explain that they refuse to contribute any further to Trump’s efforts to win the White House.
“At EarnAway we have historically offered our customers the best deals on trips to some of Donald Trump’s most well-known international hotels, such as The Trump SoHo in New York, The Trump Plaza in New Jersey and Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City,” said co-founder of EarnAway Robert Berrisford.
“However, we have now made the decision to remove all of his hotels and resorts from our website as we feel it’s ethically and morally wrong for us to effectively help fund and contribute to a political campaign that we have such strong opposition to.
“I am not at all worried about this decision having a detrimental effect on our business; in fact we have already had a number of complaints from some of our regular customers who don’t appreciate the fact that we promote Trump’s hotels in the first place. Hopefully, we can inspire other online travel agencies to follow suit and dissuade Britons from sending any extra money his way!”
