Whilst he was graduating, Trump joined his father’s company, Elizabeth Trump & Son, and started his career in real estate. Given the authority of the company in 1971, he renamed it to The Trump Organisation. His first huge deal was the construction of the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Manhattan in 1978. This was then followed by the setting up of the Trump Tower in 1983. He expanded his business to a great extent by later acquiring the Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, the Taj Mahal Casino in New Jersey, and so much more. His organisation looks after many resorts and golf courses in the US. Along with real estate, Trump has also been involved in beauty pageants and professional sports. Though he owns multiple homes, Trump loves to spend most of his free time in Trump Tower in Manhattan. He himself does not drink but owns a Vodka brand which was launched in 2006.
Appearing for the Presidential Elections was an idea that was running in Trump’s head since long. He is a well-known figure in America and is now the Republican Party Nominee for president in 2016 with his campaign Slogan “Make America Great Again”. If we talk about his net worth, Trump is the 324th richest man in the world. He is one of the wealthiest politicians in the American History. With net worth $3.7 billion (as estimated by Forbes in 2016), Trump’s per year salary stands at $60 million.
No doubt, Trump is a powerful and confident personality and is giving tough competition to other nominees. He is very skilled with his business practices, which make him a great negotiator; despite of his controversial image he has mastered the fine art of convincing complex dealers and navigating them to achieve his goals. Trump’s controversial image is indeed fascinating but now he is keeping his steps very neatly to avoid any mess in future. Read Business News.
