U.S. president attacks Democratic Party for defending Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar over canceled Israel, West Bank visit
Donald Trump is the president of the United States.
Trump was born in New York on June 14, 1946, to Mary MacLeod Trump and Frederick C. Trump, a real estate developer. After graduating with a degree in economics from the University of Pennsylvania, Trump joined the family real estate business. In 1974, Trump became the president of the family business and renamed it ‘The Trump Organization’.
Trump’s lavish lifestyle and reputation for being vocal and outspoken have given him celebrity status. His fame was amplified by the triumph of his TV show ‘The Apprentice’, an NBC reality show. Trump’s success lead him to be named on the ‘Forbes' list of the world's billionaires’ where he is quoted to have a 4.5 billion dollar net worth.
Trump has been involved in politics since the late 1980s and ran for president in the 2016 U.S elections, on behalf of the Republican Party.
