Donald Trump’s Age & Early Beginnings

Donald Trump was born into a life of privilege on June 14, 1946, in Queens, New York City. His birth name was Donald John Trump and his zodiac sign is Gemini. He was born to Frederick C. Trump and Mary MacLeod as the fourth of five children. His father was a real estate developer and he followed his father to his construction sites and worked there during the holidays when he came home. Donald Trump attended the New York Military Academy and graduated in 1964. He was very active in school and became a student leader and also represented the school in different field sports.

On religion, you can say from his inclinations that Donald Trump is a Christian although it is hard to say any more than that. Whether orthodox or unorthodox, we know that Donald Trump believes in God. His father’s family were Lutheran while his mothers family were Presbyterians. He has close ties with several top Christian leaders in America as was revealed during the electioneering season. In early years, Norman Vincent Peale, the author of the bestselling book, The Power of Positive Thinking ministered to the Trump household. He is an ardent reader of the Bible and says it is his most favourite book. He once described Pastor Paula White, the head pastor of New Destiny Christian Center, Florida as his spiritual confidant.

Donald Trump inherited part of his wealth from his father. Senior Trump was a rich real estate developer in New York. Fred Trump developed an empire that had about 27,000 residential units. These residential units ran across Queens and Brooklyn. At his death, senior Trump was estimated to have a net worth of about $300 million.

However, it is not clear how much Donald Trump got from his father’s estate. Nonetheless, it was estimated that he was worth a current equivalent of $1.4 million when he was graduating from college. The social networks, skills and the money that Trump inherited from his father have greatly contributed to making him who he is today.

Donald Trump’s Family: Wife, Sons & Daughters

Donald Trump has had three marriages of which two ended in a public divorce making him only the second US president to be divorced, the other being Ronald Regan. He married his first wife, Ivana Marie Zelníčková, a model from the Czech Republic in 1977 when he was 30 years old. Trump cheated on his wife with actress and TV personality, Maria Ann Maples, leading to the dissolving of the marriage in 1992 after the union produced three children; Donald Trump Jr. (b. 1977), Ivanka Trump (b. 1981), and Eric Trump (b. 1984).

Donald Trump’s affair with Maria Maples led to a pregnancy which resulted in the birth of Tiffany Trump, his fourth child and second daughter in 1993. He married Maples in the same year but like his first marriage, it ended in a divorce in 1999. Trump seems to have a thing for beautiful models as in 2005, he was married again to Melania Knauss, a Slovenian model. She gave birth to Trump’s fifth child and third son, Barron Trump. She remains his current wife and the First Lady of the United States.

In all, Donald Trump has five children from his three marriages, as well as nine grandchildren. His first son, Donald Trump Jr. has five children – three boys and two girls – with his wife, Vanessa. Ivanka, who is married to her husband, Jared Kushner has three children – two boys and a girl. His second son, Eric welcomed his first child – a baby boy with his wife, Lara on September 12, 2017.

Well-Wishers Support

One thing about Trump is that he is good at influencing authorities and other people to invest in his businesses. He has received high amounts of loans from successful private investors. For instance, Chase Manhattan offered him about $24 million to aid the building of the multi-million dollar, Trump Tower in New York. Trump himself owns a palatial condo in the building which is among the highest valued buildings in New York City.

In addition to the $24 million that was provided by Chase Manhattan, Trump was given an extra $150 million as a construction loan. This helped Trump make more profit from the building as none of his money was used in its construction.
