After Mitt Romney knocked Donald Trump over his defunct Trump Steaks line of beef cuts, Trump touted his steaks at a March 8 news conference in Jupiter, saying, “I have very successful companies.”
Trump later joked with a crowd of supporters gathered at the event that they could take one home for “50 bucks a steak. No, I’m only kidding.”
Since then, The Palm Beach Post found that the steaks presented at that news conference were not, in fact, Trump Steaks. Rather, they came from Bush Brothers Provisions Co., a West Palm Beach-based supplier that sells steaks to several Trump properties.
Now, NBC News reports that the trademark on Trump Steaks was canceled in December 2014.
