The Trump Organization said Saturday that the company has no plans to expand in Taiwan and
squashed rumors of building luxury hotels and resorts in Taiwan’s Taoyuan City.
The organization’s announcement on Saturday comes after U.S. President-elect Donald Trump spoke with President Tsai Ing-wen, breaking decades-long U.S. foreign policy.
In November, the mayor of Taoyuan told media that a representative of the Trump Organization had traveled to the island and expressed interest in building a hotel there.
The Trump Organization’s vice president of marketing, Amanda Miller, responded to ABC News on a recently surfaced Facebook post by Anne-Marie Donoghue, who is global director of transient sales and Asia at Trump Hotels.
The New York Times also found her posted a picture on her Facebook on Oct. 15 from Taipei and in the comments described her visit there as a “work trip,” and declared the company’s investment interest in Taiwan’s Taoyuan Aerotropolis, a large urban planning development project surrounding the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.
