Who is Donald Trump?
Donald John Trump, 45th President of the United States, was born on June 14, 1946, in New York, New York. From 2017 until 2021, Donald John Trump served as President of the United States.
He was a successful business entrepreneur and television celebrity before becoming president.
Trump, the son of a wealthy real estate developer, attended the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School before taking over his family’s firm.
During his career as a businessman and charismatic leader, he built and rebuilt multiple hotels, casinos, and office skyscrapers, amassing a net worth in the billions.
He also ran several beauty pageants and dabbled in reality television. In the early 2000s, he broadened his objectives by entering national politics and setting his sights on the presidency.
His career as a politician was plagued by charges of sexual misbehavior, and he was chastised for his lavish lifestyle and provocative remarks about immigration from Islamic countries.
Despite the scandals surrounding him, Trump ran for president as a Republican in 2016 and unexpectedly defeated Democratic contender Hillary Clinton.
His presidency was marred by a series of contentious choices, and he was impeached in the House of Representatives for abuse of power and obstruction of the legislative process. However, he was cleared of both accusations by the Senate.
Joe Biden won in the 2020 presidential election.
Donald J. Trump embodies the American success narrative, always pushing the bar for excellence while growing his real estate, sports, and entertainment holdings.
He is the quintessential businessman, a consummate negotiator. Mr. Trump began his business career in a Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, New York, office he shared with his father.
He spent five years working with his father, where they were busy negotiating transactions together.
“My father was my mentor, and I learned a tremendous amount about every part of the building industry from him,” Mr. Trump is quoted as saying.
“Some of my best deals were made by my son, Donald…everything he touches appears to turn to gold,” Fred C. Trump said frequently.
Mr. Trump then ventured into Manhattan real estate, which is a very other entity. The Trump signature is synonymous with the most exclusive locations in New York City and around the world.
The world-famous Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, as well as the luxury residential towers Trump Parc, Trump Palace, Trump Plaza, 610 Park Avenue, The Trump World Tower (the tallest structure on Manhattan’s East Side), and Trump Park Avenue, are among them.
Mr. Trump was also responsible for the designation and construction of the Jacob Javits Convention Center on land he owned known as the West 34th Street Railroad Yards, as well as the complete exterior restoration of the Grand Central Terminal as part of his conversion of the nearby Commodore Hotel into the Grand Hyatt Hotel.
Mr. Trump received an award from Manhattan’s Community Board Five for the “tasteful and inventive recycling of a prestigious hotel” for the project, which is considered one of the city’s most accomplished restorations.
Mr. Trump has owned and sold many great buildings in New York over the years, including the Plaza Hotel (which he renovated and restored to its original grandeur, as lauded by the New York Times Magazine), the St. Moritz Hotel (three times…and now known as the Ritz Carlton on Central Park South), and the land beneath the Empire State Building until 2002. Under the Empire State Building is a large plot of land (which allowed the land and lease to be merged for the first time in over 50 years).
Mr. Trump also owns the former Nike Town store on East 57th Street, which is next to Tiffany’s.
Gucci launched their largest store in the world at Trump Tower in early 2008. Mr . Trump was just named “Golf’s Greatest Builder Today” by Golf Digest Magazine and “The Most Important Figure in the World of Golf” by Sports Illustrated.
“Donald Trump possesses the largest collection of golf courses and clubs ever built or assembled by one guy,” says Brian Morgan, the world’s premier golf photographer.
The media debated the accuracy of polls and the Clinton campaign’s strategic blunders in the aftermath of Trump’s unexpected victory.
Most experts believed that Clinton had taken some of her key constituents (women and minorities) for granted and that Trump had successfully exploited the economic fears and racial biases of certain working-class whites, particularly men.
Trump began issuing executive orders almost quickly after taking office, to fulfill some of his campaign promises and present an image of swift, decisive action.
His first executive order, signed on his first day in office, mandated that all “unwarranted economic and regulatory burdens” imposed by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) be reduced until the law is “promptly repealed.”
He authorized the Secretary of Homeland Security to begin planning for the construction of a wall along the country’s southern border five days later.
A five-year ban on “lobbying actions” by former executive branch personnel was enforced by executive order on ethics, however, some provisions were softened or deleted.
