Trump’s businesses see campaign gains




Donald Trump’s business empire has seen revenue jump by $190m (£135m) since the real estate tycoon entered the United States presidential race, according to newly released financial documents.

His controversial calls for a Muslim travel ban and deporting millions of undocumented immigrants appear not to have harmed his business interests.

Several firms severed ties with Mr. Trump when he launched his campaign.

The gains mostly came from book royalties and his golf courses.

His latest book, Crippled America, generated between $1m and $5m in royalties, Mr. Trump reported.

Revenue nearly doubled at Mr. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida from $16m to $30m. His bottled water line, Trump Ice, also saw growth.

He also appears to have benefited from the sale of Miss Universe Pageant, a move caused by his entry into politics.
