Donald Trump won the Mississippi and Michigan primaries tonight (March 8) and prepared to hold a celebratory press conference in Jupiter, Florida. Workers prepped for the event by laying out a thick wooden cutting board with about a dozen large steaks and chops that were “described as ‘Trump meat,'” according to Reuters.

The purpose of the meat, which was arranged next to bottles of wine from Trump’s vineyard in Charlottesville, Virginia, was not immediately apparent. Trump Steaks was one of the many failed business ventures that Trump’s opponents have tried in vain to highlight during the campaign.

Update: The steaks were part of a planned Trump dig at Mitt Romney, who has been citing Trump’s many business failures. But it’s not clear what that proves, since his Trump Steak business has been dead for almost 10 years.
