Trump Model Management has allegedly told its business associates to prepare to close, reported Mother Jones. President Donald Trump helped to found the agency in 1999, which was started by five agents from Elite, and he owns an 85 percent stake in the company to date. According to its website, the agency currently represents 86 women, including Katie Moore, Hollie May Saker, Tiana Tolstoi, and Zhenya Migovich. Women represented in the past include ’90s supermods Tatjana Patitz and Yasmin Lebon.
An internal email by Corinne Nicolas, president of Trump Models, obtained by the magazine states that, “on the heels of the recent sale of the Miss Universe Organization … the Trump Organization is choosing to exit the modeling industry.” Trump sold the Miss Universe organization to WME/IMG back in 2015. “While we enjoyed many years of success, we are focused on our core businesses in the real estate and golf industries and the rapid expansion of our hospitality division,” a spokesperson for the Trump Organization told the New York Post. Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump are running the day-to-day operations of The Trump Organization.
