Background And Professional Experience
Trump was the youngest of five children born to real estate mogul Frederick (Fred) Christian Trump and his wife, Mary MacLeod.
Maryanne Trump Barry, Donald’s oldest sister, was a federal judge for the District of Columbia from 1983 until 1999 and for the Third Circuit from 1999 until her resignation in 2011.
Frederick, Jr. (Freddy) worked for his dad for a while until he took out for the skies in the ’60s. Freddy’s drunkenness ultimately caused his death at the young age of 43 in the year 1981.
Using federal guaranteeing of loans intended to spur the construction of affordable housing, Fred Trump began constructing hundreds of single-family dwellings and row houses within the Queens and Brooklyn boroughs of New York City in the late 1920s, and then thousands of house components, mostly in the city of Brooklyn, beginning in the late 1940s.

He also constructed government funded homes for sailors and shipyard employees in Virginia and Pennsylvania during World War II.
To obtain larger loans from commercial banks and pocket the difference between the loan’s amounts and the actual construction costs, Fred was under investigation by the Senate Finance Banking Committee in 1954 for purportedly misusing the loan-guarantee program.
The Beach Haven residential development in Brooklyn was constructed by Fred for $3.7 million which was less than the value of his government-insured loan, as he revealed before a Senate inquiry in 1954. He faced no criminal charges, but after that he was denied eligibility for government loan guarantees.
Ten years later, an Albany state inquiry revealed that Frederick had used the money he made from a state-insured development loan to create a retail center on his own land. His inability to get state guaranteed loans for residential developments in the Coney Island neighborhood of Brooklyn followed his return of the sum of $1.2 million from the state.

From where he earned a bachelor’s degree in economics. He avoided serving in the Vietnam War by getting a medical discharge in 1968 on the grounds that he had bone spurs (after being granted four educational draft deferments).

In 1974, Trump became president of a group of companies and partnerships he controlled and would eventually rebrand as the Trump Organization.

The Electoral Win Of Donald J. Trump In 2016
Since the 1980s, Trump has publicly considered a presidential candidacy on several occasions, but the media has mostly ignored his musings as mere publicity stunts. His presidential exploratory committee was founded in 1999, the same year he shifted his voter registration from the Republican to the Reform Party.
His socially liberal but fiscally conservative political ideas were laid out in a book he released in 2000, The America That Deserve, notwithstanding his decision not to run for president that year.
Trump eventually returned to the Republican The Party, and he had a strong role during the 2012 race. The publicity he received for making the bogus allegation that Democratic President Barack Obama was not a biological U.S. citizen led to widespread speculation that he could run for politics at some point.
Donald Trump declared his candidacy for president of the United States in the 2016 election in June of that year. Although his critics hated the red hats, they were one of the most effective uses of color branding in marketing history.
And they advertised Trump’s promise to “Make America Great Again,” which included promises to create hundreds of thousands of new jobs, to fine American companies which exported jobs overseas, to repeal Obama’s signature constitutional achievement.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA), and to revive the U.S. coal industry. In his 2015 book, Crippled American: How to Create an America Great Again, Trump discussed these and other topics.
