Donald  J.  Trump
real estate tycoon & Emperor

Real estate tycoon Donald Trump is a fascist and a multiple bankrupt and a racist and a crook and a sexist pig;
the really sad part is that Trump was the best that the Republican Party could come up with to run for President of the U.S.A.
And then a large number of racist, xenophobic, reality-averse dimwits elected the man President!

If Donald Trump was a legitimate official under the U.S. Constitution, this would be the page for him as U.S. President. But things as they are
require a split: this page covers Trump the tycoon, the second page is for Emperor Trump and his fascist administration.

          Grandfather Friedrich Trump was born in Germany in 1869; he arrived in New York City in 1886? and worked as a barber; in 1891 he joined the Klondike Gold Rush and built the Arctic Restaurant & Hotel (and saloon) in Bennett, British Columbia (between Yukon Territory and Southern Alaska). The business was also a brothel, and local Native Americans are restoring the site as a museum, figuring to attract tourism dollars. When the Klondike ran out of steam in 1901 and authorities threatened to shut down liquor sales and prostitution, 'Fred' Trump sold out and returned to Germany. He quickly married and returned to New York City; his wife was homesick for Germany, and they traveled back & forth, but three children were born in America in 1904, 1905 & 1907. He bought property in Queens and operated a hotel, but kept a low profile due to anti-German sentiment during the war. He died suddenly at age 49, one of the early victims of the 1918 Influenza Pandemic.

          Donald Trump enjoyed playing soldier at the New York Military Academy, circa 1964 (see photo). But instead of actually serving, he received five deferments: four for education and after graduating college, a deferment for a 'bone spur' in his heel, although playing football, squash, tennis, and golf was never a problem.

Donald J. Trump, Sr. credits [since 1981] at Internet Movie Database

“So the people have spoken, giving the finger to the Washington Consensus and electing an admitted sexual predator and proven prevaricator
so lacking in impulse control that he spent the early morning hours of one day cyberbullying a beauty pageant contestant he had once
humiliated in person. Strike up 'Hail To The Chief'.”   — journalist Lou Dubose

Business  History

          Donald Trump made an estimated $300M building rental apartment villages in outer New York City in the 1960s. In 1971, he began a project to replace the crumbling Commodore Hotel [built 1919] atop Grand Central Station in Manhattan with the Grand Hyatt Hotel, which was completed in 1980 and further renovated in 1996 and 2011. He used those profits to finance Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue; construction began in 1979 and tenants were brought in from February to November 1983; the building is the current residence of himself and members of his family, and also company headquarters and headquarters for Trump's presidential campaign. Trump purchased the Barbizon Plaza Hotel and the adjacent 100 Central Park East in 1981 for $13 million and renamed them Trump Parc and Trump Park East; both buildings were converted to condominiums in 1988. Trump Palace in Upper East Side Manhattan is 54 stories tall and was completed in 1991. Trump purchased the 71-story commercial building at 40 Wall Street [built 1930] in 1995 and renamed it The Trump Building; Trump owes a $50M mortgage on the property. Trump World Tower in Manhattan was constructed from 1999 to 2001; it is 72 stories tall and stands across the street from United Nations headquarters. Trump purchased the former Hotel Delmonico [built 1929] in 2002 for $115M and renamed it Trump Park Avenue, reopening as condominium units in 2004. In late 2003, the Trump siblings sold their late father's real estate empire to a group of investors, reportedly for $600 million; Donald Trump's one-third share was $200 million, which he used to expand Trump Casino & Resorts. The 98-story Trump International Hotel & Tower in downtown Chicago, Illinois opened in January 2008 and was completed in January 2009.

          Trump branched out to build or buy casinos in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Trump Plaza opened in 1984 and closed in 2014. Trump's Castle opened in 1985, was renamed Trump Marina in 1997, and was sold to Landry's in 2011 and renamed Golden Nugget. When Trump Taj Mahal opened in 1990 it drew customers away from the earlier two; the Trump casinos filed Chapter 11 four times (1991, 2004, 2009, 2014), cheating investors each time. Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts was founded in 1995; properties included the three Jersey casinos and the floating Trump Casino & Hotel in Gary, Indiana (opened in 1996, sold in 2005 and renamed the Majestic Casino), and Trump World's Fair Casino (opened 1996, closed 1999). T.H.C.R. took over management of the tribal-owned Spotlight 29 Casino near Palm Springs, California in 2000; the Indians bought out the contract in 2006. T.H.C.R. was reorganized as Trump Entertainment Resorts in 2004; bankruptcy court approved a reorganization/takeover by hedge fund Avenue Capital Management. T.E.R. closed Trump Plaza in 2014 and bankruptcy court approved a reorganization/takeover by Carl Icahn in February 2016; at that time, the only remaining property was the Taj Mahal Casino, which was shut down in October 2016.

          Trump branched out again to build or buy or operate 17 golf resorts around the world; eleven locations are in the United States (Rancho Palos Verdes, Los Angeles, California; 5 courses at Doral, Florida; Jupiter, Florida; West Palm Beach, Florida; Bedminster, New Jersey; Colts Neck, New Jersey; Briarcliff Manor, Westchester, New York; Ferry Point, Bronx, New York; Hopewell, Hudson Valley, New York; Charlotte, NC; Philadelphia, PA; and Potomac Falls {DC area}, Virginia); international golf facilities include: 2 sites in Dubai; Doonbeg, Ireland; Aberdeen, Scotland; and three courses at Turnberry, Scotland.

Other past Trump Organization business interests include:

  • The Miss Universe Pageant: founded in 1952, sold to Trump in 1996; joint venture with NBC in 2002; after Trump's inflamatory anti-immigrant campaign remarks in September 2015, NBC and Univision cancelled plans to broadcast the 2015 pageant; Trump bought NBC's 50% share and three days later sold the organization to talent agancy W.M.E./I.M.G.
  • defunct Trump Mortgage LLC: founded in April 2006, headed by E.J. Ridings; folded in 2007, name sold to First Meridian Mortgage; renamed Trump Financial; folded 'several years later'. The company is liable for unpaid tax leins and unpaid court settlements (2016).
  • Trump University LLC: a for-profit real estate training program founded in 2004; the company was shut down in 2010 after losing several consumer lawsuits; Trump University was forced to shut down all operations in Texas; criminal cases are still pending in New York State court and in New York federal court. The separate company Trump Institute produced real estate seminars in over 30 cities from 2006 to 2009; Trump Institute has recently been accused of plagiarism.
  • Trump Winery: Donald Trump purchased the Kluge Winery in Virginia in 2011 and gave (or sold) it to middle son Eric Trump; the property includes the Albemarle House luxury B&B and is no longer part of the Trump Organization.
  • defunct New Jersey Generals football team: franchise founded by Donald Trump in 1983, who soon sold out 'to concentrate on real estate'; the team played three seasons and the U.S. Football league folded in 1986.
  • defunct GoTrump.com travel website [2006-2007]
  • defunct Trump Airlines [1989-1992]

    Other present Trump Organization business interests include:

  • a line of coffee drinks, a line of men’s wear (made by slave labor in foreign countries), a line of fragrances
  • Trump Restaurants (in his buildings)
  • Trump Ice brand natural spring water: formerly sold at national food stores, currently available only at Trump business locations.
  • "Trump: The Game" [launched 1989] board game
  • Trump Model Management agency was founded in 1999
  • Trump Vodka launched in January 2007
  • Trump Home {upscale handcrafted furnishings & decor designed by Dorya} was launched in spring of 2007
  • Trump Steaks launched in the Sharper Image catalog in 2007
  • daughter Ivanka Trump's lines of clothing, jewelry, and fragrances

    Donald Trump may still own stock in Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners, the builder of both the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, and if so then he was in violation of his Oath of Office (U.S. Constitution Emoluments clauses) the minute that he was sworn in as President. News reports state that he owned between $500,000,000 and $1 million in E.T.P. stock in mid-2015, which had been reduced to $25,000 to $50,000 after the election. Trump also owns between $100,000 and $250,000 in stock in Phillips 66, one of the primary partners in E.T.P.

    Since Donald Trump has failed to divest himself of conflict-of-interest assets by February 2017, the following retail businesses have ceased offering Trump family products or other connections: Uber, Nordstrom, Macy's, Shoes.com in Canada, Neiman Marcus, Wayfair home decor, and Bellacor home decor.

    Feb-March 2018: Miami-based investor Orestes Fintiklis led a group that took over ownership of the 70-story Trump Tower [open 2011] in Panama City, Panama and canceled the naming/management contract; after twelve days of resistance (tweets, barricades, minor violence), Trump management and security employees were kicked out by local authorities; the Trump name was immediately removed from the building, soon to be replaced with 'Bahia Grand Panama' signage.

    “Art of the Deal” ghostwriter rips Trump in New Yorker interview: “I put lipstick on a pig.

    porn star Stormy Daniels
    Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen set up a shell company in October 2016 and used it to pay former porn star Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, $130,000 to keep quiet about alleged extramarital sexual encounters with Trump (she denies that it was 'an affair'). Revealed by The Wall Street Journal and other news media in January 2018: documents use pseudonyms, except attorney Cohen used his real name.
    The sexual encounters apparently took place at the American Century Celebrity Golf Chamnpionship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course at Lake Tahoe, Nevada in July 2006.

    former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal
    The New Yorker Magazine reporter Ronan Farrow confirmed the authenticity of a document detailing an alleged affair between former Playboy Playmate (circa 1997-98) Karen McDougal and then-married real estate tycoon Donald Trump from August 2006 to April 2007; the eight-pages of handwritten notes say that they met many times over a nine month period at a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel. American Media Inc., publisher of the National Enquirer gossip tabloid, paid $150,000 for McDougal's story but never ran it, which has led to allegations that it deliberately bought the story and killed it to protect Trump, who is personal friends with A.M.I. chief executive David Pecker.
