Donald Trump Biography


Donald John Trump is a businessman, television personality, and politician who served as the 45th President of the United States from 2017 to 2021. He was born in New York City on June 14, 1946, the fourth of five children of Fred and Mary Trump. His father was a successful real estate developer and his mother was a homemaker.

Trump attended the New York Military Academy for high school and then went on to Fordham University for two years before transferring to the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated with a degree in economics in 1968.

After graduation, Trump joined his father’s real estate business, and in 1974, he was given control of the company, which he renamed The Trump Organization. Under his leadership, the company expanded into a global empire of hotels, resorts, and residential properties. Trump also became a public figure, appearing on television shows and in the news media, and he gained widespread notoriety as the host of the reality TV show “The Apprentice” from 2004 to 2015.

In 2015, Trump announced his candidacy for President of the United States, running on a platform of economic nationalism and immigration restrictionism. He campaigned as an outsider, criticizing the political establishment and promising to “Make America Great Again.” He defeated a crowded field of Republican primary candidates, and in November 2016, he won the presidential election, defeating Hillary Clinton in a surprise victory.

Trump’s presidency was marked by controversy, including impeachment proceedings and a contentious relationship with the media. His administration implemented a program of deregulation and tax cuts, which he argued would stimulate economic growth. He also pursued an “America First” foreign policy, withdrawing from international agreements such as the Paris Climate Accord and the Iran Nuclear Deal. He also sought to build a wall along the US-Mexico border, which was a central campaign promise and one of the most controversial aspects of his presidency.

Trump’s presidency also saw a number of major events and crises, including the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which had a significant impact on the economy and public health, and widespread protests over racial injustice and police brutality. He also had a tumultuous relationship with his own party and the political establishment in Washington, and he was impeached twice by the House of Representatives, first on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress in December 2019, and then on charges of incitement of insurrection following January 6, 2021, attack on the United States Capitol. He was acquitted on both impeachment trials by the Senate.

Trump left office on January 20, 2021, and since then he has been still active in the political sphere, he has been giving speeches and rallies, and he has also announced his possible run for the presidency in 2024.
