    Same thing. The company isn't the same as the brand. The brand is what the company sells. A brand is a (usually) trademarked identifying mark used to identify a specific product line. It can also refer to the product line itself ("brand of wallets")

    Trump companies that sought bankruptcy protection:

    2. Trumpís Castle
    3. Trump Plaza Casinos
    4. Trump Plaza Hotel
    5. Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts
    6. Trump Entertainment Resorts
    I can't find a complete list of businesses or companies that Trump owns or has a stake in, but the number I keep coming across is that it's around 500, so rough math says that he has a 95% business success rate. Not bad. And that's accepting your shaky premise that a product counts as a business.

    You don't have even the most basic understanding of how business and branding works.

    I actually do, having owned a business which had several brands.

    A brand is the product of a business. Sorry.

    I apologize if this basic fact offends you, but... wait, no I don't apologize. Your ignorance isn't my fault in the least.

    Individuals attempt to "brand" themselves all of the time with varying levels of success. Some are businessmenpersons but many more are just folks trying to act cool.

    The point being, the latter disproves your assertion.

    Right... the brand is the PRODUCT, it's not the BUSINESS, and a failed brand or product does not necessarily mean a failed business, especially if the business sells multiple brands/products.

    Way to "own goal" yourself, kiddo.

    Sure you have.

    A business can have more than one product. A product failing doesn't mean the business failed. In this case the business is Trump's branding business (he didn't raise the cows or butcher the meat, and aside from selling the steaks in his hotels/restaurants, which he is still doing, he didn't own the store they were sold in either), and his branding business is alive and well.

    The old phrase --- "put your money where your mouth is" says a lot.

    One of the main reasons the investors on Shark Tank decline to partner with an applicant is "you have a brand - you don't have a company".

    I tend to believe people who vote with their wallets.
