Mexico maybe the land of Bad Hombres and unfair trade deals but it appears it might be the next home for the Trump brand.
Unbelievably for the man and the family that vomits gold on everything - Mexico and its pesos are not vile enough to pass up a branding opportunity to profit from.
According to the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) the Trump Organization - now headed by President Donald Trump’s shamelessly unaccomplished-live-off-of-dad-so- I-don’t-have-to-get-a-real-job son’s: Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump - has had at
least three Trump trademarks approved in the country. The first trademark was approved in October of last year and the final trademarks several weeks ago. The applications for the trademarks were made in February of 2016 by the presidential candidate and then-head of Trump Organization.
The Trump Organization largely banks on an image of a man now widely viewed as a simple and reduced thinker (best case) or worse someone that has become unhinged with so much spray tanning. Regardless of the brand value in the world, in Mexico Trump is reviled and everyone’s favorite piñata to bash. Mexicans view Trump as American’s own trafficker of hate and division.
According to AP, “The Mexican trademarks cover a broad range of business operations that can roughly be broken down into construction; construction materials; hotels, hospitality and tourism; and real estate, financial services and insurance. They are all valid through 2026.”
The trademark approvals arrived by burro since no one in the IMPI must have been motivated to process the applications too fast. The country had already experienced a Trump-business debacle much like the Atlantic casinos. The Trump Ocean Resort Baja Mexico luxury condos came in 2006 and were mired in lawsuits by 2009. The bloated narcissist was forced to capitulate and settle lawsuits by nearly 100 angry condo owners.
How did the morally and financially bankruptcy aficionado respond? Twitter of course.
“I have a lawsuit in Mexico’s corrupt court system that I won but so far can’t collect. Don’t do business with Mexico!”
