Eric Trump’s life is perhaps extra sophisticated than standard after his father’s presidency, however not like his sister’s collapsed enterprise, his empire is prospering. Whereas there is not an abundance of proof that the Trump Vineyard’s enterprise is booming, Slate’s senior editor Jordan Weissmann mentioned he’d “wager an honest bottle of Bordeaux on it.” Whereas Donald Trump technically owns the vineyard (or no less than, he used to, the particulars should not that clear today), Eric is its president and even perhaps its present proprietor. On the vineyard’s web site, it seems that the model is making an attempt to distance itself from the previous president, stating that it is “not owned, managed, or affiliated with Donald J. Trump or any of his associates.” But Eric is technically an affiliate.
Both manner, Weissmann did some digging and located that, whereas enterprise boomed throughout Trump’s presidency, the hype hasn’t worn off even after his disgraceful exit from the White Home. There was a name to boycott Trump wines in 2017, however it solely led to extra gross sales, due to frenzied supporters who did not need to miss out on their favourite Trump juice.
In accordance with the Virginia ABC, Trump Wines’ income climbed all through his presidency and continued to carry out effectively after Joe Biden took workplace. Weissmann appeared baffled by this after making an attempt a few of Trump’s grape juice himself, dubbing it “largely undrinkable” and “the worst [has] left me dazed and muttering in disappointment, kind of like every time I watch a Florida election consequence.”
