Over the years President Donald Trump, as a business mogul, has put his name on so many things – from vodka to planes to casinos. Though most Trump-branded projects aren’t built by the Donald Trump himself. Instead he most often licenses his name and takes the credit and the profit or loss.
Here is a list of things that have, or have had, Donald Trump’s name on them.
Trump Wines – Pop one open today
This is Trump wine, served at his hotel in Las Vegas. Not to be confused with the Trump Winery is located in Virginia. According to one review the Sauvignon Blanc “has aromas of tropical fruits, citrus, green bell pepper and lemongrass – and a clean acidity”. Don’t ask us what that means.
In 2007, Donald Trumps company came out with Trump Steaks. They were sold through The Sharper Image, but due to poor performance they had to be taken off shelves just two months later. They were also marketed briefly on the QVC shopping channel. As of press time – still not available. Cows win.
According to Trump’s website, it’s “one of the purest natural spring waters bottled in the world.” Not available at your local 7-11 probably.
The Trump hotels around the world are billed as “a family enterprise offering unparalleled service and experiences” on one of their websites.
Except on days like this…
Trump: The Game
Trump: The Game was released in 1989. Its objective was ‘To beat other players in real estate, shipping and more’. It was discontinued in 1990 – GAME OVER.
Donald Trump created the Trump Shuttle in 1988, buying a fleet of planes and turning them into a luxury flight experience.
The Trump Shuttle went out of business in 1992.
Trump Casinos – the Taj Mahal
This is the Trump Taj Mahal casino resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It filed for bankruptcy (one of several Trump institution bankruptcies) in 1991, when it was $3 billion in debt.
The casino shuttered permanently in October 2016. Can you say WHALE ?
