From the New York website: Maybe you watched Wednesday’s Republican primary debate on TV. Maybe you heard Donald Trump say he filed for bankruptcy “four times out of hundreds” and wondered: Trump has how many businesses? And only four of them failed?
Boy do we have a graphic for you.
A website called Internationalbusinessguide.org gathered publicly available information on Trump’s career, and calculated that a hefty 58 percent of Trump-brand businesses failed. To be fair, many of the ventures that crashed were pretty minor (anyone remember Trump Vodka? Trump Steaks?). And, as the chart points out, 42 percent is an “excellent baseball batting average.”
