Happy Island, a designer of tropical gardens and gardens designed by a former president, has announced it will no longer design islands in the Middle East.
The designer, who is also a former Trump campaign adviser, made the announcement in an open letter to his followers.
“Today, I am announcing that Happy Island has chosen to no longer be the designer of islands in this part of the world,” the designer wrote.
“While I have been critical of some of the policies that have been adopted by President Trump and his administration, I do not believe we should continue to have to live with the consequences of that decision.”
The letter also noted that Happy’s work with the Trump administration had included “designing and building a project to raise awareness about the importance of a free and open internet, a free media, and a free democracy.”
Happy Island is no stranger to controversy.
The company’s first island was in Indonesia, where the company has a manufacturing facility.
In 2017, the company was forced to shut down its Indonesian manufacturing facility after a lawsuit from Indonesian officials and protesters over the factory.
The island’s island is now home to the largest and most expensive shopping mall in the world.
Happy Island has also been the target of protests over its decision to allow Donald Trump to use the company’s brand on the beach at his Mar-a-Lago estate.
