Are Any Shops Selling Trump's Products?
After his triumphant primary victories Tuesday night, Donald Trump displayed tables filled with Trump brand wine, water and steaks.
But it turns out that you might have a hard time finding those Trump products in your local store. The only place INSIDE EDITION found a bottle of Trump water was in a cafe at Trump Towers in New York City.
The original Trump water was called “Trump Ice” but that company shut down. The bottles that Trump displayed on Tuesday are bottled in Connecticut and only sold at places like Trump hotels and golf courses.
As for the steaks, the so-called “world's greatest steaks” were sold exclusively through Sharper Image back in 2007. The former CEO of the company told Think Progress: "We literally sold almost no steaks. If we sold $50,000 of steaks grand total, I’d be surprised."
The steaks displayed by Trump at Tuesday night’s speech weren't really Trump brand steaks at all. They came from a company called Bush Brothers Steaks, which supplies meat to the Trump properties.
According to a spokeswoman at Bush Brothers, the company has “never sold [them] as Trump steaks,” and she said Trump may have made a mistake.
Critics say Trump wine, from Trump Winery, is actually pretty tasty but the website says: "We are not affiliated with Donald J. Trump." The company is run by one of his sons.
There was also once Trump Airlines, however, Gawker reports that before they went belly up the airline never turned a profit and Trump defaulted on his loans.
But according to the GOP frontrunner: “I sold the company and made a great profit.”
In response to Trump's business ventures, Shark Tank's Kevin O'Leary said: "You have got to take those risks if you are an entrepreneur. I think he has taken them. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose."
As for Trump Magazine, just like the water, you'll only it find it at Trump properties and it's not even called Trump Magazine anymore.
"Every once in a while the underlying business is going to fail and it taints your name," O'Leary said.
