The Turkish franchise of Trump Towers announced on Sunday that it was reconsidering its business relationship with Donald Trump due to the US republican White House hopefuls call for keeping Muslims out of the US.
Trump Towers in Istanbul is a glass commercial and residential complex owned by Turkish media mogul and businessman Aydin Dogan.
Dogan pays Trump for the brand name of the building which soars over the city's central business district and its mall features around 175 different stores, presenting Turkish and global brands.
Bulent Kural, the manager of Trump shopping mall said, "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."
Kural stated their opinion as a franchise via an e-mail which read "Our reaction has been directly expressed to the Trump family. We are reviewing the legal dimension of our relation with Trump brand."
Trump provoked international uproar and has come under heavy criticism from the international community and the US for his plan, which calls for Muslims, including refugees, students and tourists, to be banned from entering the country after a shooting in California by a Muslims couple that killed 14 people.
Trump is a real estate mogul and former reality show TV star who leads opinion polls in the Republican nomination for the November 2016 presidential election.
