Donald Trump is without a doubt one of the most well-known figures in the category of ‘successful business people.’ His brand is synonymous with luxury; if his name is on something you can bet it will be expensive.

In the style of Trump himself: some of the 13 failures on this list are so great it’ll make your friggin’ head spin!

1. Trump Steaks

Though it sounds too hilarious to be true, in 2007 Donald Trump had a line of steaks sold at the Sharper Image. That’s right, the Sharper Image.

Just imagine: you walk into a store to play with the latest electronics, doohickies, gizmos and gadgets. You sit in a comfy full-body massage chair and over on the shelf you lock eyes with a black box labeled Trump Steaks. As the chair lulls you into a blissful relaxation, you immediately decide that spending $200 on a couple of Trump-approved filet mignons is the only thing that can make this experience any better.

Oh, you can’t imagine that? Neither could just about any other consumer.

The steaks only lasted for about two months before the Sharper Image decided to pull the item. Jerry Levin, CEO of the Sharper Image, has even went on to say, “…we literally sold almost no steaks.”
