Trump grew up in the Jamaica Estates neighborhood of Queens, New York. He attended Kew-Forest School from kindergarten through seventh grade. At age 13, Trump’s parents enrolled him in the New York Military Academy, after discovering that he made frequent trips to Manhattan without permission. In August 1964, Trump entered Fordham University. Two years later he transferred to the Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania because it offered one of the few real estate studies in the United States academia at the time.

In addition to his father, Trump was inspired by Manhattan developer William Zeckendorf. While at Wharton he worked at the family business, ‘Elizabeth Trump, and Son’ and graduated in May 1968 with a Bachelor’s degree in economics from Wharton.

Trump was not drafted during the Vietnam War. While in college from 1964 to 1968, he obtained four student deferments. However in 1966, he was deemed fit to service upon a military medical examination, and in 1968 was briefly classified as fit by local draft board, but was given a 1-Y medical deferment in October 1968. Trump has attributed his medical deferment to heel spurs.

Donald Trump: Career

Donald Trump began his career as a businessman when he joined his father’s company, ‘Elizabeth Trump and Son’ while still in college. The company focused on middle-class rental housing in Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. He became deeply involved in the project and with a $500,000 investment, turned the 1200 unit apartment complex in Cincinnati with a 66 percent vacancy rate to 100 percent occupancy within two years. In 1971, Trump moved to Studio Apartment in Manhattan, New York and became involved with larger building projects. In the following year, he finalized the first multi-million dollar real estate transaction with the sale of Swifton Village in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1985, he bought Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida and renovated the Barbizon hotel and 100 Central parks South. IN 1988, trump bought the Plaza Hotel in New York City. In 1989, he bought a fleet of Boeing 727 airplanes to form Trump Air Shuttle service. Unfortunately, a helicopter crash killed three of Trump casino executives.

By 1989, poor business decisions left him unable to meet loan payments but he somehow financed the construction of his third casino, the $1 million Taj Mahal, with high-interest junk bonds. The increasing debt soon brought him to business bankruptcy. In 1990, he regained his previous stable financial position and fame and opened the Trump Taj Mahal Casino in Atlantic City. Soon he gained approval for Riverside south development of West Side rail yards. In 1996, Trump got the ownership of Miss Organization which produces the Miss Universe, Miss USA, and Miss Teen USA Pageants. In 2003, he took a joint partnership with the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) where he became the executive producer and host of the NBC reality show, ‘The Apprentice’ which became a huge success. Following its success, he co-produced a show, ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ along with British TV producer Mark Burnett.

On October 21, 2004, Trump Hotels and Casino & Resorts declared a restructuring of its debt which led to a reduction and soon the company re-emerged from 56 percent to 27 percent. The Company applied for Chapter 11 Protection in November and soon the Company re-emerged from bankruptcy as rump Entertainment Resorts Holdings. He used the Trump logo on a large number of products, including Trump Financial, Trump Sales and Leasing, Trump Entrepreneur initiative, Trump Restaurants, Go TRUMP, Donald J. Trump signature collection. Moreover, he also received $1.5 million for every one-hour presentation he did for ‘The Learning Annex’. He also has a business simulation game called Donald Trump’s Real Estate Tycoon.

Now moving towards Trump’s Career, in the 2000 elections, he expressed his wish to run as a third-party candidate for the US presidency. In 2004, he speculated about running for president in the Republican Party and in between in 2006, he considered running for governor of New York as a representative of the party. He again registered as a Republican in 2009 after having registered with the Democratic Party in 2001 and campaigned for it. In 2010-2012, Trump’s involvement in politics intensified when he publicly announced his consideration of candidature for the presidency again. However, his association with the ‘Birther issue’, a group that firmly believed Barack Obama was not born in the US, disparaged his political reputation. But he continued to be against Obama on various political issues.

In January 2013, he endorsed Israeli Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the Israeli elections. He was also featured speaker at the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Now on to his Presidential Campaign, 2016, Trump announced his candidacy for president as a Republican in June 2015. As a flamboyant personality with a successful business career and media presence, he quickly emerged as the front-runner for his party’s nomination and was formally nominated for president at the 2016 Republican National Convention.

Trump campaigning focused on domestic issues such as illegal immigration, crime, Islamic terrorism, offshoring of American jobs, and the U.S. national debt, and his campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again” resonated with the American citizens. While many of his campaigning tactics received criticism, they also ensured that he got unprecedented media coverage.

He was accused of lying and embellishing facts during his election speeches and received a lot of negative backlash with major publications like ‘Politico’, ‘The Washington Post’, “The New York Times’, and the ‘Los Angeles Times’ terming his statements as downright falsehoods.

As a presidential nominee, he adopted a populist stance and supported a broad interpretation of the Second Amendment. His ‘tax plan calling’ for reducing the corporate tax rate to 15% and replacing the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) with a different free-market plan earned him support from several quarters. Despite his detractors and all the negative publicity surrounding him, he managed to emerge victorious in the general election on November 8, 2016, in which he defeated Hillary Clinton to become the President of the United States.

Donald Trump assumed office as the 45th President of the United States of America on January 20, 2017.
