One of the largest retailers in the Middle East has banned all Donald Trump products from its shelves after the US presidential hopeful called for a complete ban on Muslims entering the US.

"In light of the recent statements made by the presidential candidate in the US media, we have suspended sale of all products from the Trump Home decor range," Sachin Mundhwa, chief executive of the Landmark Group, which owns Lifestyle.

The products have been pulled from its shelves in the UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. But the retailer has not said how much the contract is worth.

Mr Trump's comments caused public outcry around the world. A petition to ban the businessman-turned-politician from entering the UK has gained more than 300,000 signatures [at the time of writing].

Donald Trump has also been removed as an ambassador for Scotland by the Scottish government and had his honorary degree from the Robert Gordon University revoked. Trump has been a 'GlobalScot' for 11 years.

The network was set up by Scottish Development International, designed to promote Scottish businesses around the world. Trump's mother was Scottish and he has frequently spoken proudly of his Scottish heritage. In an interview with The Scotsman newspaper in 2006, he even attributed his business success to his Scottish ancestry.

In a statement, the Scottish government said: "Mr Trump's recent remarks have shown that he is no longer fit to be a business ambassador for Scotland and the First Minister has decided his membership of the respected GlobalScot business network should be withdrawn with immediate effect."

A spokesperson for Robert Gordon University said: “In 2010 Robert Gordon University awarded an honorary DBA to Mr Donald Trump, in recognition of his achievements as an entrepreneur and businessman.

"In the course of the current US election campaign, Mr Trump has made a number of statements that are wholly incompatible with the ethos and values of the university. The university has therefore decided to revoke its award of the honorary degree.”
