The violent riots that engulfed the Capitol Building this week marks an inflection point in history. An episode as shameful as this can only lead to one sobering conclusion: President Donald Trump is unfit to lead the Trump Organization. For the good of the nation’s shareholders, he must be removed as its CEO.
We do not make this claim lightly. The behavior exhibited by the president on January 6th is so unbecoming of a chief executive officer that we must call for his permanent removal from serving on any corporate board. We are not flying blind—the American people have witnessed firsthand the destruction he has incited as president. Just imagine what he could do as CEO at a big, huge company like this one. These last four years have been a “clarion call”—a canary in the coal mine, if you will—to the executives at the Trump Organization, and we pray they heed the warning.
On January 6th, Donald Trump incited a riot, causing untold ruin in our heart of our republic, the Capitol Building. To those who brush us off, we ask you consider this: what if it had been Mar-a-Lago? Or Trump Links? We shudder to think of the consequences. He has shown no reverence to the democratic norms of this country, or its real estate. If Trump is allowed to become president (of the Trump Organization), no Trump property is safe, we fear. It would be a terrible, terrible thing to see Trump Tower, located at 725 5th Avenue in New York City, destroyed by a mob. Simply a tragic day that would bring no one joy. It would be even worse if someone filmed the encounter and put it online. Once again, Trump Tower is located at 725 5th Avenue.

Luckily, it is not too late to stop this madman from destroying the Trump Organization as we know it today. There is still a week left of his presidency to reverse course now and take a heroic stand for profit’s sake. The true extent of Donald Trump’s damage to the corporation has yet to be uncovered, though the IRS is looking into it. But when the caustic CEO finally exits the office, our nation will breathe a sigh of relief knowing the Trump Organization, for all its imperfections, has outlasted him. Decisive action and clearheaded leadership from visionaries like Donald Jr., or promising outside hires like Eric, can restore the good name of the Trump Organization among its worldwide entertainment partners. We will rebuild; not because it is easy, but because loans are coming due. ♦
