The Washington Post article buries the lede six paragraphs down: And it shows how his fortunes have evolved since last year, when his controversial comments about immigration and Muslims threatened to tarnish his business brand even if they boosted his political campaign. Trump hasn't changed his campaign but business has been very good indeed: Business has boomed in Donald Trump’s financial empire during the time he has run for president, according to an analysis of his federal disclosure forms. The documents, including a lengthy filing released Wednesday and one from last July, show that revenue has increased by almost $190 million, with gains coming from golf courses to branded merchandise to book royalties. So I guess Americans didn't think Trump's "comments about immigration and Muslims" tarnished his brand at all. In fact, it looks like people are voting with their pocketbooks--it bodes well for election day.
