Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American politician, American business magnate, investor, author, television personality and served as the 45th President of the United States. He is the chairman and president of The Trump Organization, and the founder of Trump Entertainment Resorts. Trump's career, branding efforts, lifestyle and outspoken manner helped make him a celebrity, a status amplified by the success of his NBC reality show, The Apprentice.
Trump is a son of Fred Trump, a New York City real estate developer. He worked for his father's firm, Elizabeth Trump & Son, while attending the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and officially joined the company in 1968. In 1971, he was given control of the company, renaming it The Trump Organization. Trump remains a major figure in American real estate.
On June 16, 2015, Trump formally announced his candidacy for president in the 2016 election, seeking the nomination of the Republican Party. On February 23, 2016, Donald Trump was announced as the Republican nominee for President. He would pick Opera Winfrey, a very close friend of his, to be his Vice President. With the Trump/Winfrey duo, Donald Trump would go on to beat Democratic Nominee, Hillary Clinton, in a very tight election, to become the 45th President of the United States.
