A $6 billion golf community being built in Dubai is going forward minus the “Trump” brand.

Reuters reports that DAMAC properties had said it would stand by Donald Trump amid backlash from his proposal to ban Muslims from traveling to the U.S. But on Thursday the GOP presidential candidate’s name and image were removed from the “Akoya by DAMAC” site.

Real estate isn’t the only branding problem for Trump in Dubai. Lifestyle, a home-decor store chain based there, said Wednesday it was removing all Trump-branded products from its 195 stores across the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere in the region.

Lifestyle cited “recent statements in the U.S. media,” CNN reported. DAMAC provided no explanation, Reuters said.

Trump has been unapologetic, rejecting challenges on his proposal from Democrats, Republicans and international leaders. After Scotland dropped him as a “business ambassador, he wrote in an article in Scottish daily newspaper The Press and Journal : “The UK politicians should be thanking me instead of pandering to political correctness.”

On Thursday, he tweeted: “The United Kingdom is trying hard to disguise their massive Muslim problem. Everybody is wise to what is happening, very sad! Be honest.”
