207 | “Today’s Not the Day”: Why Trump Hotels changed course in the Mississippi Delta


Almost two years ago, Trump Hotels introduced Chawla Hotels to the world as the first developers of the company’s new brands Scion and American Idea.

Though Trump Hotels in February announced it was pulling out of development deals in Cleveland and other nearby towns, the Trump effect will be more than a footnote in Mississippi’s history.

This report is an update of sorts as I featured interviews with Eric Danziger and Suresh Chawla in back-to-back episodes released on July 19 and July 26, 2017, just after the June announcement.

You’ll hear from …

  • Dinesh Chawla about his unique experience of working with Trump Hotels.
  • Eric Danziger, CEO of Trump Hotels, on why he and brothers Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump decided to call it quits with new brand development.
  • Kathleen Flores, executive vice president of new brands and innovation, as she tells what’s next for Trump Hotels.
