Mexico approved four Trump trademarks to be used in the country in Spanish over the past six months, per the Quad City Times.
The first was approved prior to the general election and the following three were just approved at the end of February.

The Mexican trademarks cover a broad range of business operations that can roughly be broken down into construction; construction materials; hotels, hospitality and tourism; and real estate, financial services and insurance. They are all valid through 2026…
Trump Organization General Counsel Alan Garten said the Mexican government’s decision was not a special favor to the president.
“We’re not being granted anything we didn’t have before,” he said. The original trademarks came “years before (Trump) even announced his candidacy.”
Garten said the Mexican trademarks originally had two purposes: laying the ground for possible new ventures and keeping other people from using Trump’s name for their own businesses.
His counsel clarified that because of the major change in circumstances, the trademarks are primarily defensive at this time.
