Trump Bashes Goodyear Over Dress Code

2020-08-24 by Ronn Torossian

As much of the country, including nearly all political commentators and media personalities, were watching the virtual Democratic National Convention, President Trump was watching a news trend that has been gaining steam online. Eventually, the President added his clout to the #BoycottGoodyear slogan. The US-based tire company got on Trump’s bad side after stories circulated, claiming that the company’s official dress code allowed staff to wear clothing supporting social issues such as Black Lives Matter but disallowed political speech such as MAGA hats. Responding on Twitter, the President of the United States urged his followers to boycott tires from Goodyear.... Read More >

Fake Publicist Donald Trump PR

It can be assumed that most PR people and publicists have only a limited amount of influence over what is said in the press about their clients. But when you start looking at those representing a long list of superstar clients as does Leslee Dart of 42 West (previously known as the Dart Group) founded in 2004 when she left PMK– it can be a different story entirely. At the time she left, she was one of the three top people at PMK, long considered one of the top talent and entertainment PR and publicist talent companies. When she left... Read More >

Donald Trump hedges a great deal of his bid for the White House on his stance against illegal immigration. And while people from many cultures around the world migrate illegally to the United States, his primary target in anti-immigration talks centers on Mexicans, who make up the bulk of illegal immigrants in America. This position continues to gain traction in the United States as many Americans believe immigrants are largely to blame for lost jobs, crime, and violence. Trump therefore successfully capitalized on these sentiments to give his campaign – some would say – a winning edge. President Nieto’s Response... Read More >

Donald Trump Stressed

Remember when Donald Trump skipped a debate and held a charity drive for military groups? So does everyone else, and now they are asking who actually got paid. According to Trump’s people, his fundraiser brought in $6 million for various veterans’ charities. Now, according to the Wall Street Journal, less than half of those funds have been dispersed. Initial reporting by Fox Business back in February stated that only a small fraction of the cash had been distributed. Now, that number is up, but not nearly where it should be after several months. At least, that’s the line many news... Read More >

Cisco Gets Political – Good or Bad Idea?

2016-03-29 by EPR Staff

Typically, given the split state of things in U.S. politics, companies are extremely circumspect in their support for presidential candidates. After all, unless you REALLY mean it, why alienate half your potential customers? Apparently Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins didn’t get that memo. Instead of staying away from some controversy, he’s wading headlong into it, making sure people know who he chooses NOT to support. Robbins, a well-known Republican, has made it abundantly clear he will not support Donald Trump, even if Trump wins the GOP nomination. In an interview with CNN’s Poppy Harlow, Robbins said he’s leaning toward John Kasich... Read More >

Trump University

The Internet has unleashed a torrent of alternative education options for would-be students of all stripes. Just about anything you want to know has been packaged and sold as the best thing in education since chalkboards. But, even as alternatives to brick and mortar educational opportunities become more popular, many are beginning to see the dark side of ‘net ed. In the past, expensive for-profit private colleges have taken the brunt of the negative PR, but now there’s a new standard for educational shell games: Trump University. But does the Donald’s real estate program deserve the negative attacks being hurled... Read More >

Donald Trump oversees a vast empire of real estate holdings and developments, including several resort and hospitality destination efforts.

Communications PR for Major Entities May Need to Adjust to President-Elect Trump’s Tweeting

In light of Donald Trump’s recent comments and escapades, he’s quickly learning there is such a thing as bad publicity. And it might impact whether or not he should continue his bid for the presidency. In fact, it might be best if he just pulls out of the election now. Here’s why… From a public relations perspective, his outrageous comments, particularly regarding immigration and Senator John McCain’s war record, may end up really damaging his business. If he continues on the egotistical path he’s on and continues to open his mouth when he shouldn’t, people will eventually boycott him. They’ll... Read More >
