Short Biography of Donald Trump

Following repeated business blows in real estate, but with success in building, Donald Trump has become not only one of New York City’s most impressive tycoons, but recently has become one of Hollywood’s most sought-after television hosts. His recent fame in The Apprentice, a reality-based T.V. series, sees the end of the show with someone who hears the deafening sound of Trump yelling “Your Fired!”.

Before becoming the CEO of Trump Organization, whose focus is on New York’s prime real estate, he had a whirlwind of debt that came crashing down before he was able to climb back to the top using money from his father’s empire, and his own entrepreneurial know-how.

When he was in his teens, Donald Trump attended the New York Military Academy, where he would graduate with honors. There, he participated in a variety of sports, including baseball, soccer, and football. Following, he attended Fordham University, obtaining a BA in Finance. Upon graduation, Trump felt ready to join his father’s empire at Trump Organization. In New York City, the two built up the Swifton Village Apartments, the Commodore Hotel, and the Javits Convention Center.

The autobiography of Donald Trump is called Art of the Deal. While it is not referred to as an actual telling of his life growing up, as it is a focus on how he and his family became successful, it does reveal many reflective moments about his childhood, university, and rise to lead one of the nation’s greatest empires. In another biography written about Donald Trump and the family entitled The Trumps: Three Generations That Built an Empire, the author details the early happenings in Donald Trump’s life that led him to make certain decisions throughout his career.

Following his takeover of many New York building projects, Donald Trump filed for chapter eleven bankruptcies for his business and almost for his personal debt. The total loss for stock and bondholders was nearly a billion dollars. He had gone in debt of nearly four billion dollars. But, as he was able to hold onto his Trump Towers and a few casino resorts, he was able to climb steadily back. With his recent climbs in television ratings, his two-million-dollar an hour T.V. appearances, and speeches he delivers across the country, he has re-garnished a wealth that many thought had disappeared.
