The Republican National Convention is usually a goldmine for restaurants—companies that sponsor the RNC hold lavish parties that need to be catered.
This year, there’s just one problem.
Companies are afraid to be associated with Trump, so they’re not sponsoring the convention and they’re not booking restaurants.
OK, I'm thinking that you can book a really good deal on a party downtown that week. https://t.co/Umjhyg1X04

An early indicator of the negative economic effect of a Trump presidency. https://t.co/XyVMEmmj9P

Perhaps the most surprising thing is that companies aren’t also boycotting the DNC, on account of Hillary Clinton.
@HillaryClinton you are the most corrupt candidate that has ever run for President.
