“I’ve wanted to do this for a long time,” Trump told a crowd before heading to a campaign in Michigan “I have some incredible people that work with me on things, and they came up with this, and this is something I’ve been talking about for 12 years, 13 years. I think it’s gonna be a big success.”

Trump’s sneaker launch comes a day after a New York judge ordered Trump to pay nearly $355 million in penalties in a civil fraud case. Judge Arthur Engoron also banned him from serving as a company director. Trump has also been banned from taking out loans from banks in the state for as many as three years.

Trump later said he would appeal the ruling, according to BBC. "A crooked New York state judge just ruled I have to pay a fine for $355m for having built a perfect company," he said. "It's a very sad day for - in my opinion - the country."
