At last night’s press conferenceat the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Fla., GOP front-runner Donald Trump spent a considerable amount of time refuting Mitt Romney’s allegationsfrom earlier in the weekthat some of Trump’s businesses were failures.
Here’s the clip where Trump goes on to talk about Trump Steaks, Trump Water, Trump Magazine and Trump Wine:
Except, as we reported last night, there is an open question if the steaks Donald Trump displayed at his press conference last night were actual “Trump Steaks” or if they were from a local meat wholesaler,Bush Brothers Provision Company.
Reporters are still awaiting official word from the Trump campaign on clarification of Trump’s remarks on the steaks, but the AP is reporting that the club does indeed use meet from Bush Brothers:
A spokeswoman for Trump’s campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but the labels on the steaks displayed Tuesday night appeared to match those of a company called Bush Brothers. A club staff member said that’s the butcher that supplies the club.
There are also questions being raised by reporters concerning Trump Water, Trump Magazine and Trump Wine.
First up, Trump Water. TIME’s Zeke Miller posted a pic of the label that shows the water is from a company in Connecticut that sells bottled water “with your own private label“:
He bought generic water so now it’s “Trump Water”?
Trump then held up a copy of what he said was “Trump Magazine” to prove it was still in existence. Except the magazine he held up was titled, “The Jewel of Palm Beach” and it’s an annual publication that is only distributed at his Palm Beach club, Mar-a-Lago:
As for Trump Wine, there’s a disclaimer on the website that states the winery “is not owned, managed oraffiliated with Donald J. Trump, The Trump Organization or any of their affiliates”:
Here it is right on the website’s “Legal” page:
We’ll update this post with any new information from the Trump campaign as it comes in.
