Donald J Trump is the newly elected President of the United State. Here is five amazing things many people do not know about him.
1.Donald Is A German By Ancestry.
Trump was born on June 14, 1946, inJamaica Estates, Queens, a neighborhood in New York City. He was the second youngest child of five children. Of his four siblings, three are living: Maryanne, Elizabeth, and Robert. Trump’s older brother Fred Jr. died in 1981 from alcoholism, which Trump says led him to avoid trying alcohol or cigarettes.
Trump is of German ancestry on his father’s side and Scottish ancestry on his mother’s side; all four of his grandparents were born in Europe. His father Fred Trump (1905–1999) was born in Queens to parents fromKallstadt, Germany and became one of the biggest real estate developers in New York City. His mother, Mary Trump (née MacLeod, 1912–2000), was born in Tong, Lewis, Scotland. Fred and Mary met in New York and married in 1936, settling together in Queens. His uncle John G. Trump, a professor atMassachusetts Institute of Technologyfrom 1936 to 1973, was involved in radar research for the Allies in theSecond World War, helped design X-ray machines that provided additional years of life to cancer patients, and in 1943, the Federal Bureau of Investigationrequested him to examine Nikola Tesla’s papers and equipment when Tesla died in his room at the New Yorker Hotel.Trump frequently invokes his uncle as proof of his family’s smart genes.
Drumpf, the family’s ancestral name, evolved to Trump during the Thirty Years’ War in the 17th century. Trump has said that he is proud of his German heritage; he served as grand marshal of the 1999 German-American Steuben Parade in New York City.
2. He Is No Joker With His Businesses.
An analysis of Trump’s business career by The Economist in 2016, concludes that his “…performance [from 1985 to 2016] has been mediocre compared with the stock market and property in New York”, noting both his successes and bankruptcies. Any such analysis is difficult because, as the magazine observed, “Information about Mr Trump’s business is sketchy. He doesn’t run a publicly listed firm…” Trump’s early successes were partly commingled with those of his father so they omit them, claiming, “The best long-term starting point is 1985, when Mr Trump first appeared in the rankings without his father.” A subsequent analysis by The Washington Post, whose reporters were denied press credentials by the Trump presidential campaign, opined that “Trump is a mix of braggadocio, business failures, and real success.”
3.He was worth $200,000 after college.
This is what Justin Bieber is worth after so many years of labour, I mean hard labour.
Prior to graduating from college, Trump began his real estate career at his father’s company, Elizabeth Trump and Son, which focused on middle-class rental housing in the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn, Queens, andStaten Island. During his undergraduate study, one of Trump’s first projects was the revitalization of the foreclosed Swifton Village apartment complex inCincinnati, Ohio, which his father had purchased for $5.7 million in 1962. Fred and Donald Trump became involved in the project, and with a $500,000 investment, turned the 1,200-unit complex’s occupancy rate from 34% to 100%. Trump has said that when he graduated from college in 1968, he was worth about $200,000 (equivalent to $1,020,000 in 2015).In 1972, the Trump Organization sold Swifton Village for $6.75 million. At age 23, he made an unsuccessful commercial foray into show business, investing $70,000 to become co-producer of the 1970 Broadway comedy Paris Is Out!.
4. He Managed Golf Courses At 18.
The Trump Organization operates manygolf courses and resorts in the United States and around the world. The number of golf courses that Trump owns or manages is about 18, according to Golfweek. Trump’s personal financial disclosure with the Federal Elections Commission stated that his golf and resort revenue for the year 2015 was roughly $382 million.
In 2006, Trump bought the Menie Estate in Balmedie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, creating a golf resort against the wishes of local residents on an area designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. A 2011 independent documentary, You’ve Been Trumped, by British filmmaker Anthony Baxter, chronicled the golf resort’s construction and the subsequent struggles between the locals and Donald Trump. Despite Trump’s promises of 6,000 jobs, in 2016, by his own admission, the golf course has created only 200 jobs.
5. He Is An Handsome Old Man.
Considering all I have heard and know about Donald J Trump, he is a very handsome prosperous man. Having worked so hard as a teenage guy and he is still strong at this age, even to the extend of always marrying almost every Miss World.
I give him the credit of been a very handsome man. Check his picture at his teenage years below
