The Trump Organization is getting a boost in revenues from its commercial and office properties at a time when revenue from its hotel business may be falling, according to a new report from The New York Times.

The revenue from office properties, which according to the Times includes office towers in midtown Manhattan and Wall Street as well as San Francisco, is coming at a pivotal time for the Trump Organization. 

The Times reports that as that revenue rises, revenue from the organization's hotels and golf courses appears to be stagnant. Some hotels in the Trump Organization have seen declines, or have not been able to keep up in pricing with competitors, the Times said.

While Trump's base adores the president, millions vehemently oppose him. Protests and demonstrations have occurred regularly at the Trump property in Washington, D.C.

While the hotel is popular with Republicans, the Trump Organization recently put it on the market.

The Times reported that total company revenues have been steady, though it said it was not possible to determine total losses or profits since the organization only reports its total revenues. 

But the Times said the organization's property at 40 Wall Street, which is near the New York Stock Exchange, has seen its revenue nearly double since 2015.
