An investigation by the Dallas Morning News found that Mukemmel “Mike” Sarimsakci, the developer who was planning to help launch the Trump Organization’s new Scion brand with a hotel in downtown Dallas, has a history of unpaid debts and legal trouble. Sarimsakci, who refers to himself as the “Turkish Trump” and is an admirer of the President, has been sued dozens of times for unpaid bills and once for unpaid taxes. After considerable public opposition to the project and the publication of the investigation, Sarimsakci told the Dallas City Council he will be working with another hotel company.
