Turkish partner condemns Trump's anti-Muslim remarks, reviews business ties

ANKARA - The Turkish franchise of Trump Towers condemned US Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump's proposal to temporarily bar Muslims from entering the United States, and said late on Thursday it was evaluating its legal ties with the brand name.
Trump Towers Istanbul is an asymmetrical glass commercial and residential complex developed by Turkish billionaire Aydin Dogan that soars over the city's central business district. Dogan pays Trump for the brand name.
"We regret and condemn Trump's discriminatory remarks. Such statements bear no value and are products of a mind that does not understand Islam, a peace religion, at all," said Bulent Kural, the manager of Trump shopping mall.
