Late last night, Donald Trump took to Twitter to campaign for Hawaiian votes ahead of today’s caucus and claimed he employs “many people in Hawaii”:
I employ many people in Hawaii at my great hotel in Honolulu. I’ll be there very soon. Vote for me, Hawaii!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 8, 2016
Not true, says CBS News:
There’s one problem here: Trump does not own the Trump International Hotel Waikiki Beach Walk. The Trump company is not involved in any way in selling or developing the property. Here’s the disclaimer at bottom of the hotel’s website:
“Trump International Hotel & Tower® Waikiki Beach Walk® is not owned, developed or sold by Donald J. Trump, the Trump Organization or any of their affiliates. Irongate Azrep BW LLC, the owner and developer of the property, uses the “Trump” name and mark under license from Trump Marks Waikiki LLC, which license may be terminated or revoked according to its terms.”
Over to you, Mr. Trump. What say you?
