Donald J. Trump is the very definition of an American success story, continually setting the standards of excellence for real estate, sports and entertainment. In New York City and around the world, the Trump signature is synonymous with the most prestigious addresses in the world.
Mr. Trump was born in Queens, New York, and is married to Melania Trump and father to Donald Trump, Jr., Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany, and Barron. He is a proud grandfather of seven.
A graduate of the Wharton School of Finance, and an accomplished author – having authored over fifteen bestsellers, Mr. Trump has devoted his life to growing a company and expanding prosperity for his family and the tens of thousands of Americans he has employed.
Mr. Trump began his business career in an office he shared with this father in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, New York. He worked with his father for five years during which time his father often stated, “some of my best deals were made by my son, Donald…everything he touches seems to turn to gold.”
The Trump organization owns some of the world’s top properties, including, among many others, the world-renowned Fifth Avenue skyscraper, Trump Tower, as well as Trump Parc, Trump Palace, Trump Plaza, the Trump World Tower, Trump Park Avenue, and, most recently, the transformation of the Old Post Office Building in Washington DC. In addition to properties that occupy the Manhattan skyline, Mr. Trump owns many of the premier golf clubs around the world, some of which include Trump National Golf Club in Westchester, NY, Trump National Golf Club in Los Angeles, CA, Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, FL, Trump National Doral Miami, and Turnberry Golf Club in Scotland. Mr. Trump owns properties around the globe in locations such as Brazil, Canada, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Panama, Scotland, Ireland, and others.
Mr. Trump has been recognized for both his business accomplishments and his deep passion for the country. He has long been a devoted supporter of veterans’ causes, and has been honored by the Pentagon for his commitment to restoring the dignity of the New York City’s Veterans Day Parade after it had been neglected and poorly managed.
Mr. Trump entered the 2016 presidential campaign because he was deeply concerned about the direction of the country. His motto has been to “Make America Great Again” by bringing jobs back to Americans through renegotiated trade deals and a reformed tax code, securing our borders and restoring the rule of law, repealing and replacing Obamacare, strengthening our military, caring for our veterans, and unifying Americans. He believes that the United States of America is the greatest country in the world, and that the American people unified and working toward a common goal can restore our standing around the world as a beacon of freedom, strength and prosperity.
