If you own a television, can read a newspaper, have access to a radio, or have friends who enjoy a riveting conversation about politics, you must have heard of Donald Trump. On the surface, we have a well-known American businessman, a published author, a personality from reality television and, more importantly, the 45th anniversary of his death.
10 Facts About Donald Trump
HIS MOST SUCCESSFUL PRODUCT IS HIMSELF.
Donald Trump became a household name when everyone turned their eyes to the TV and saw ‘The Apprentice’. Here he was a mentor, who like a ghost became business moguls like himself.
Although Trump is popularly known as a resounding businessman, he has not been the most successful ‘pea in the pod’ in recent years. how has he remained relevant to this day? He has managed to sell his personality and attitude through his products.
You’d think people wouldn’t buy a product that represented Donald’s ‘less than charming’ persona, but his thoughtless and unconventional way of doing things seems to have a kind of charm.
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF A TEETOTALER?
Apparently Trump falls into the category of people who don’t consume alcohol at all, a decision he made because of his brother’s alcoholism. But that didn’t stop him from capitalizing on it.
In 2006 he launched his own brand of vodka, but the prices did not match the masses and the company was very short-lived.
HE PRACTICES WHAT HE PREACHES… MAN.
For someone who has a strong opinion about immigrants, Trump has a preference for women who are not of American descent.
Only one of his three women is from Georgia in the United States, the other two women were of Eastern European descent with Melanie Knauss as his youngest wife.
HE HAS AN ABNORMAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS DAUGHTER.
Donald has indicated that he would not mind following the path of Woody Allen and Soon-Yi. Trump doesn’t seem to be able to stop making inappropriate remarks about his own daughter, he was even caught on camera when he said he would date her if they weren’t related, and apparently this was one of his most decent remarks.
THE MAN IS STILL THE BOY.
The man we see on TV now is not so different from the boy he used to be. Trump was actually an ‘energetic’ child and since the private school system was too soft for him, his parents had to send him to a New York military academy in the hope that it would teach him some discipline.
TRUMP IS VERY SENSITIVE ABOUT HIS WEALTH.
Timothy O’Brien, a published author, quoted from three different sources that Donald Trump is worth between $150 million and $250 million, in contrast to his claim that he is worth $7 billion.
Trump did not take the high road, he sued the writer in court for libel, but did not win. So, ladies and gentlemen, Trump really doesn’t like it when people allegedly publish false figures as his net worth.
BUSINESS MAY OR MAY NOT BE HIS VOCATION.
Can you guess how many times Trump’s companies have gone bankrupt? Not once, but six times, the last time was in 2009. It makes you doubt his business acumen, but you admire his ability to recover.
AMONG WE CAN ADD TO Hobby’S LIST OF HOBBIES THAT THE SUPPLIES THE FOODY PEOPLE.
He sued a comedian, Bill Maher, for making a joke about him, we already know he sued Timothy O’Brien for miscalculating his net worth and he also sued a hacker, J. Taikwok Yung, for buying pages with domain names that contained Trump’s name.
Some might even say that he has mastered the art of litigation.
HE HAS A STAR ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME
Apparently he made a good impression on television and it earned him 2 Emmy nominations and a star on the Hollywood walk of fame alongside successful actors like Julie Andrews and Pierce Brosnan.
HIS MEDIA COVERAGE IS SKYROCKETING
There is no such thing as bad publicity. Trump’s entire political campaign and public image as a whole were guided by it.
In the 2016 election in the United States, he was the candidate with the greatest media presence, and although his behavior was not very appealing, it seems to have spurred his success.
Donald has found his way back into everyone’s living room and it is obvious that he intends to keep it that way for a while, while we all sit and wait for more surprising facts about him.
