For Donald Trump, "surviving at the top" hasn't always been easy. Not all of his business ventures have been big hits like Trump Tower or "Celebrity Apprentice."
We recently took a look at many of Trump's successes, and now we turn our attention to some of his faux pas. Since Trump has made success a key part of his campaign for president and it's inherent in his lucrative brand, Trump's failures in the business world are fair game.
There was the Monopoly-style board game Trump: The Game; Trump Super Premium Vodka; and Trump magazine, none of which became big consumer hits. There was also luxury-travel booking site gotrump.com, which folded just after a year, in 2007. Today the site directs visitors to his campaign.
Below are some more, notorious examples where The Donald was not quite able to "make it happen."
