"I bought there because I thought Trump's name made it a safe investment," said Al Monstavicius, a retired Nevada doctor who owns a penthouse hotel unit in the Panama project. "But Latinos are a real problem for him in Panama."
Monstavicius, who said occupancy in his penthouse hotel suite has been running at only 30 percent in recent months, praised the move to oust Trump.
"It can't get any worse," said Monstavicius.
Yes, you read that right. Owners of the Trump International Hotel in Panama are working to strip President Donald Trump's name from the 70-story building and fire the hotel management company run by Trump's family.
Owners of apartments and hotel units at the Panama property have previously complained about problems with Trump's management. The AP reported in October 2015 - when Trump was a candidate for president - that owners of apartments in the building had revolted over alleged mismanagement, firing Trump's manager from the building's overall board of directors.
Trump's company at the time threatened to sue the AP over its coverage, saying the reporting had damaged Trump's business interests. No lawsuit was ever filed, and Trump never identified or alleged factual errors in AP's coverage.
Because facts will always beat a con artist.
