From Trump Tower to White House

বুধবার, ০৯ নভেম্বর ২০১৬
09 November 2016 The US has got its first president, who has never held a public office or served the military.

The controversial billionaire was considered an unlikely nominee for the Republican presidential candidate.

But Donald Trump has pulled off a stunning upset on Wednesday and clinched the White House after a campaign which has been unusually bitter.

The businessman

Donald Trump was born in Queens, New York on June 14, 1946, the fourth of the five children born to Mary Anne McLeod and New York real estate magnate Fred Trump.

He attended the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania and began work in real estate with “a small loan of $1 million dollars” from his father, before joining the family company.

Trump took control of the company in 1971.

He shifted business from selling residential units in Brooklyn and Queens to more glamorous projects in Manhattan, like the transformation of the Commodore Hotel to the Grand Hyatt and the construction of the 68-storey Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue.

Other properties bearing Trump’s name followed, including Trump Towers in Mumbai, Istanbul and Manila.

Trump has tried to expand into developing hotels and casinos. The endeavour has resulted in the business filing for bankruptcy four times.

From 1996 to 2015 Trump owned the Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA beauty pageants and since 2003 has been best known for his reality television show ‘The Apprentice’, where contestants competed for a management position in the Trump organisation.

‘The Apprentice’ ran 14 seasons, during which Trump was reportedly paid $213 million by producers at the NBC. The Trump brand also adorns merchandise ranging from men’s wear to bottled water.

Forbes magazine estimates Trump’s net worth at $3.7 billion. Trump has repeatedly insisted he is worth $10 billion.

The husband and father

Trump has been married thrice. His first marriage, to Czech athlete and model Ivana Zelnickova led to a 1990 divorce heavily covered by tabloids.

The couple had three children – Donald Jr, Ivanka and Eric – who have helped their father run the family business and have played important roles in his campaign.
