The Washington Post reports that videos of President Trump and his daughter Ivanka promoting Trump Tower in the Philippines were featured on the skyscraper’s website—until this week. This is a clip of the video, which was filmed in 2013.
Donald Trump: “Trump Tower Manila will be something very, very special, like nobody’s seen before.”
This promotional video remained on the skyscraper’s website until The Washington Post asked about it earlier this week, and it was subsequently taken down. Trump developed the skyscraper outside the capital Manila with one of the Philippines’ most powerful real estate moguls, who is currently Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte’s top trade envoy. Over the weekend, President Trump invited Duterte to visit the White House, sparking outrage from human rights experts who say the invitation condones the thousands of extrajudicial killings in the Philippines since Duterte launched in his so-called war on drugs. Meanwhile, CNN has refused to air an ad from the Trump campaign that calls the mainstream media fake news. CNN says it won’t air the ad because it’s false. In response, the Trump campaign lashed out at CNN, accusing the network of censorship.
