It would appear that not everyone feels the Trump brand is toxic when it comes to marketing.
Hernando County Sherriff’s Department in Florida made a drug bust on 27th January that resulted in the seizure of 5,500 single doses of heroin, all in individually wrapped envelopes. What makes this bust different is that the face on many of the envelopes was that of Donald Trump.
Trump’s image and name were not the only ones used; others bore the names or pictures of Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman and Colombian cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar.
Florida Attorney General, Pam Bondi, who coincidental dropped her lawsuit against Trump University after campaign fund received a $25,000 campaign donation from the Trump Foundation stated:
“Big mistake. Because he is going to be our most fierce advocate in taking this junk off of our streets. Can you believe this? Big mistake.”
Police arrested 46-year-old Kelvin Scott Johnson on suspicion of heroin trafficking and other charges. He is being held on $75,000 bail and has not explained whether the Trump image was designed to sell the drug or to put addicts off.
