Donald Trump’s bid to buy the West Virginia vineyard that bears his name has fallen flat
Donald Trump Jr. said Thursday that he and his father are considering buying the West Virginian vineyard for $2 billion.
“I think we are interested in the property,” Trump Jr., who also owns golf courses in Scotland and Italy, said on CNBC.
“We would like to make sure that it’s in a position where we can be very successful and create a lot of jobs.”
Trump Jr.’s comment comes as his father, who is also running for president, prepares to take his first public steps as the presumptive Republican nominee in his bid for the White House.
His father, the presumptive GOP nominee, is also trying to win the nomination from the right.
Trump Jr said the estate sale, known as the Wolffer Estate, would be the biggest estate sale in West Virginia history.
It would include the vineyard and surrounding land.
Trump Sr. also said he is working with the Wolff estate to build a casino.
He declined to name the casino in the sale.
The sale of the Wolffen estate is the first of three properties that Trump Sr., who has built his brand on brashness, is working on, including the Palm Beach golf course and the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey.
He also has pledged to build the golf course at his Florida estate, Trump Tower.
