This Mexican Entrepreneur Has Created A Donald Trump-Themed Toilet Paper Brand

Enterprising folks know to strike while the iron is hot. Particularly hot topics or items can spark a whole cottage industry, and a well-timed release can prove to be quite fruitful. Some topics remain hot at all times, and those special topics open up all kinds of possibilities. The election of President Donald Trump falls into that category, and we’ve seen all kinds of novelty items pop up in a bid to cash in on the frenzy. Some of the creations are certainly on the questionable side, but this one may take the cake in that regard.

As the Daily Mail shares, a Mexican businessman named Antonio Battaglia has thrown his hat into the ring with his creation to capitalize on the Trump frenzy. Battaglia has introduced a 'Trump' brand toilet paper that comes with some interesting taglines.

“Softness without borders,” reads one.

“This is the wall that, yes, we will pay for,” reads another.

Those that are wondering whether Battaglia is at risk of some kind of trademark infringement are off the mark in this case. The Trump Organization has plenty of protections in place, but the company failed to check off the box on 'hygienic paper.'

Battaglia claims that this is more than a business opportunity that he’s taking advantage of. He’s employed as a corporate lawyer and notes that he’s ticked off about insults that Trump has leveled against his fellow countrymen.

“My thinking was: We can't keep quiet, right? So with this insult that was made, (I figured) I'm going to add my grain of sand in response,” he said.

To show off his altruistic side, Battaglia promises that 30 percent of profits will be set aside to be donated to migrant programs. The first packages are expected to be produced this year, and he’s planning an initial run that will fill at least two cargo trucks. From that point, he’s hoping that the laws of supply and demand play out in his favor.

Renderings of the package branding feature the Trump name, as well as a cartoonish character made out of a roll of paper that brandishes a hairstyle similar to the president. Trump has been notoriously protective of his brand in the past, so it will be interesting to see if Battaglia’s brainstorm results in any legal action. Lawyers from the Trump Organization have declined comment thus far.

Assuming no legal roadblocks are thrown in his way, Battaglia’s product could open up even more possibilities if it comes to market. Entrepreneurs everywhere will be scrambling to jump on every idea imaginable to cash in, and Battaglia has already demonstrated that all bets will be off in terms of the possibilities.

Since he’s a corporate lawyer, we’ll assume that Battaglia has all of his ducks in a row for when the inevitable correspondence from Trump Organization attorneys happens. We’ll have to wait and see how this whole thing plays out, but we’ll assume Trump detractors will be scouring the internet to try to get a hold of this toilet paper for their collection.
