TRUMP Trademark Application filed for Goods Including “Toilet Water”
Donald Trump attempted to trademark TRUMP for “toilet water” in the 1990s. The trademark application was filed in December of 1995. The original trademark application was filed for the following goods: “perfume, toilet water and cologne.” To be fair, the intention of the “toilet water” was probably meant to cover types of perfume sometimes referred to as “eau de toilette.” But, can we be sure of that? One could argue that anyone who, referring to women, might say “grab them by the p—y”, probably only thinks of “toilet water” as the water found in the toilet bowl.
