Trump Turns Victory Speech Into QVC Pitch: I Got Steaks, Wine And Mags!

March 8, 2016 10:07 p.m.

Seemingly wounded by Mitt Romney’s critiques of his business acumen, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump put some of his Trump products on display for a national TV audience in what was supposed to be a victory press conference.

Trump spoke from the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida after he was projected to win primaries in Michigan and Mississippi on Tuesday.

Romney questioned the success of Trump’s businesses in a speech last week. But Trump rejected that notion, bringing his own steaks, water, and wine to his press conference in an attempt to prove himself.

“I have very successful companies,” Trump said, knocking Romney’s critiques. “He really shouldn’t have done it. It wasn’t becoming.”

He brought Trump magazines — one of which he tossed to the crowd, “Here take one,” he said.

He brought Trump steaks: “And if you want to take one we’ll charge 50 bucks a steak,” he said.

He also brought wine which came from “the largest winery on the East Coast.”
