Footnote 6 Color U.S. Trumped | Trump Steaks Are Proof You Can Brand Anything

Donald Trump’s most valuable asset is his name and for the right amount of money he’ll lend it to all kinds of products. From $50 steaks to vodka to water to wine, Donald Trump used the presidential campaign to increase visibility for his brands.

At press conferences Trump would routinely put his products on display in hopes that the press would put shots of his products on the nightly news for some free advertising. Americans looked at this a couple of different ways — some folks thought Trump was pretty good at getting free attention for his brands while others thought Trump was pretty shameless about plugging products and not really interested in running for president at all.

Whether you think Trump is smart about how he goes about promoting himself, it should be concerning to all Americans that Trump appears so obsessed with his net worth that he spends more time hawking his products and properties than talking substantively about issues that concern everyday Americans.
