If you challenged Donald Trump to a game of Trump: The Game, he’d lose.

Losing is what he does.

Trump promises that if he’s President, we would win so much, we’d get bored and ask him to lose. And Trump has been losing for decades.

After inheriting his father’s real estate empire, Trump has used crony capitalism and eminent domain to increase it. But Trump’s attempts to set up his own businesses have been striking failures.

Trump Steaks lacked sizzle.

Trump Ice bottled water dried up.

In 2006, Trump said, “I think it’s a great time to start a mortgage company.”

Trump Mortgage Company shut down in 2007., a search engine for luxury travel deals, logged off after a year.

Trump Magazine stopped publishing after just two years.

Trump Airlines never turned a profit, and defaulted on its loans.

Trump Entertainment Resorts filed for bankruptcy in 1999.

And 2004.

And 2009.

And 2014.
