It was June 14th, 1946 and penicillin had only become available in Britain just a week before, Umberto II ended his reign as Italy’s last King and less than a year before WWII ended as the world saw the Power and capabilities of the United States. This was a defining day in American and world History. It’s the day the 45th President of the United States came into the world and we would come to know him in about 25 years. This is the day in Queens, NY and period in time Donald J. Trump was born and America was number #1 in the world. Donald was the 4th of 5 children born to Fred and Mary Trump, two very accomplished and hard working people who were a team.
As a child Donald had great parents and went everywhere with his father who was known as a very frugal, but successful man. Fred Trump was known to rarely splurge, but would buy a new American car that was blue every 3 years. Donald learned everything involved in real estate from the construction to management. He was a sponge and had tremendous respect for his Father. Mr. Fred Trump was successful in real estate and as a builder. Fred Trump built low-cost barracks for U.S. Navy Personnel near shipyards on the east coast and built thousands of apartments for returning Veterans after the world war. Over Fred Trump’s career he built well over 30,000 apartments in and around Brooklyn and Queens. Donald went everywhere with his father as a toddler and then as a young man.
Fred and Mary Trump were very committed parents and wanted to make sure their children had the best shot. Donald had so much energy his parents decided to send him to a military academy when he turned 13. There, he excelled in academics and sports while becoming a leader among his peers. More people need to talk about Mr. Donald J. Trump’s early days because these are the days that created the man we know today. He had very strict but good parents that knew what was best for him and it looks like those decisions and lessons paid off. Mr. Trump continued on to graduate from the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania with a B.S. in Economics.
The year was 1971 and cigarette ads on TV were now banned in the U.S., Apollo 14 had been an amazing success, Satchel Paige was the first black athlete to be voted into the Baseball Hall of fame and Vietnam protests were everywhere. This was a very busy year with a lot of good things happening and a lot of troubling things happening. This is the year Mr. Donald J. Trump left his father’s comfort zone outside the big city and made the move to Manhattan where he imagined his future creations. For the next couple years he made some great deals and started building friendships, friends he has to this day. He had a vision and was not going to let anyone stop him, not ever.
In 1974 Mr. Trump had the acumen to see the deal that would catapult him into the big leagues. He obtained an option with the Commodore Hotel which wasn’t doing very well. Mr. Trump is always thinking ahead, and he knew its location near Grand Central and downtown would pay off. He went into a partnership with the Hyatt Hotel Corporation and drafted a great deal with the city to refurbish the property. He renamed the final product the Grand Hyatt and it was a massive economic success that changed part of the skyline forever as he lined the building with beautiful glass. Mr. Trump was now the most well-known developer in Manhattan and possibly the United States. The TRUMP brand as we know it was being created.
Between the success of the Grand Hyatt and the year of 1990, Mr. Trump had success everywhere from Casino’s in NJ, a number of great properties and hotels, and writing the best business book of all time, The Art of the Deal, which is still the go-to book of its genre today. In the early 90’s the real estate market in our country completely crashed, and I remember this as a kid because my father was in commercial real estate himself. I, like Donald when he was a kid, went to many places with my father during his time in real estate. I actually remember going to pick up rent with my father at his properties. Mr. Trump during this time took a serious hit to his wealth and many believed he wouldn’t make it out of this storm but he did what he had to, he made deals with lenders and climbed out of this hole many others didn’t. Many failed, but he didn’t.
The wisest and most successful people I know were never afraid to fail, and if they did they learned a whole lot from it. My father falls into that category and so do I. People of action never succeed every single time. At 29 I know what it’s like to struggle with a business I attempted previously and I can tell you I know the gut wrenching feeling very well and it’s changed me. I know what it’s like to have debt and wonder how I’m going to pay for it. I respect Mr. Trump for coming back when many doubted him. I can tell you it changed him for the better as well. When you stand to lose everything, your mind comes up with solutions that you never knew existed. This is one of many reasons he’s very prepared and capable to get us out of this current financial crisis we’re in with over 18 trillion looming over our heads.
At this point in the 90’s all of Mr. Trump’s children who are now adults currently had been born. They would start watching him through the 90’s and early 2000’s just like he once learned and worked with his father. Through the 90’s Mr. Trump really ramped it up with new purchases and projects all over Manhattan and topped it off with his purchase of Miss Universe and Miss USA in 1996. No organizations do more for young women like these pageants. They teach public speaking, current events, keep them focused on an extracurricular activity and absolutely teach them how to dress for success and professionally. I have family and female friends that were involved in pageants and modeling with different success rates but one thing is a constant, they’re all successful to this day. Very successful. Two come to mind, one works at the Pentagon and the other is a business owner. Yes, both are beautiful and they both dress and speak very well. They say amazing things about their involvement with pageants and modeling as young women.
In 1999, Mr. Trump’s father passed and because of the father-son relationship I know Mr. Trump made his father very proud during his life watching his son go off on his own and do very well. It was very clear to anyone that Donald had the utmost respect and love for his father. This was a hard hit to Mr. Trump because his father had been a role model for him throughout life. There were a few quiet months during this time.
Mr. Trump’s success really blossomed like never before through the 2000’s and the list of properties he has built, renovated, and lent his name to are too many to list but the brand TRUMP is one of the most recognizable brands in the world. He has been on countless shows and too many interviews to list. He also ramped up his portfolio of golf courses which he’s purchased, fixed and built from scratch all over the world. Mr. Trump was approached by a producer for the show, “The Apprentice” some time ago and we all know the result. Because of the success he’s had in his business life, the show was one of the biggest hits ever and had ratings that broke all kinds of records at the time and still do, ratings and records which still stand.
Mr. Trump has received countless Honors throughout his career and most recently received the Leadership Award from the Commandant of the Marine Corp via the Marine Corp Law enforcement foundation. The Trump family has consistently been giving to charity for decades including cancer research and treatment. Mr. Trump also built the Vietnam Memorial which he’s very proud of. His respect for Veterans is very apparent and every Veteran I know personally, including myself, will be voting for Mr. Trump.
Someone that’s done as much as Mr. Trump leaves me with the difficult decision on what to not include when listing all the great things because I don’t have the time to write for days. I have to work myself! I can assure you I’ve been closely following the success of Mr. Trump since I was fairly young, unlike some of my peers and with the climate in our country and world right now he’s our guy. I’ve read all his books and they get better and better. I trust in him and his ability based on where he’s been and what he’s done with what he’s learned.
I have time to say one final thing about this man, and it’s one of my most important issues. Our friend Israel needs a friend in our American President and us more than ever before. Our current administration has turned their backs on Israel, and no one is more bothered by this than me. No one. Well maybe one person, Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump has Jewish grandchildren and one of his daughters and son-in-law are Jewish. Through 35 years Mr. Trump has become very good friends with Jewish people he’s met through business and other activities. I know of multiple Israeli-Americans and Jewish people very close to this campaign and we all agree on one thing. We trust Mr. Trump when it comes to protecting the Jewish people and making sure NO ONE ever lays one finger on one of the smallest countries on the planet. I really trust him.
We have to ask ourselves do we want someone who knows how to imagine, build, repair, grow and manage massive budgets and construction projects that are involved in every facet of each business he owns. This includes giving healthcare to over 10,000 people as we speak. Do we want a ladder climbing politician who’s trained heavily on talking points and completely bought and paid for, a failed CEO that sympathizes with Muslims, or a brain surgeon who didn’t know the 2nd amendment two years ago when speaking with Glenn Beck. Who has negotiating skills like Mr. Trump? None of the other candidates, that’s for sure. Not even close.
Many people are nice, not many people are qualified to manage the Executive Branch during this challenging time. There may be an appropriate position in a Trump administration for a select few candidates but we certainly know Mr. Trump is the most qualified for President. I’m voting for the most qualified and capable person. You should as well.
In 1989, when Oprah asked if he would ever run for President, he said he probably wouldn’t because he didn’t think he would be inclined to, but would never rule it out if it got so bad. He was tired of seeing our country get ripped off. Mr. Trump said that it’s gotten so bad, he can’t stand to watch it anymore. No one will lose if Trump is president. Everyone else gains, A LOT. He’s the only one doing this for all the right reasons. As Americans, we’re very sheltered because we have the best of everything and water on both sides. The rest of the world isn’t like this, and it’s very dangerous, and we’re getting weaker by the day. If we don’t win this election, we’re never going to win another one, and that’s a fact. The Democratic Party Leadership has come close to completely destroying our country. Mr. Trump’s entire life has prepared him for this. Mr. Trump never quits, he never backs down, he is fair, and will stand with YOU, ME, and our true ALLIES no matter what. He is everything the Democratic Party Leadership is not, and for that reason we must elect him.
I’m asking each person that’s reading this to dig deep inside their thoughts and try to come up with a real reason why anyone else in this race is more qualified and prepared to be our 45th President. The world and our country with another Democratic President isn’t a world I want to raise kids in. I need you to stand with me. This isn’t politics as usual, this is the last chance we have. Every great civilization the world has ever known failed, including the Roman Empire, when they got comfortable and forgot what made them great. Too many of us have forgotten our roots, and this election will go down in history as evading disaster, or the election that sealed the fate of the United States.
The President of the United States is the manager of the Executive Branch and the most influential person in the world. They are charged with appointing the leaders of each government branch with congressional approval and there’s only one person that has such vast hiring experience in finding qualified people. That man is Mr. Donald J. Trump.
Please vote for Mr. Donald J. Trump and assist me in edifying his message during the next year and creating new conservatives most importantly, by sharing and donating to our efforts.
I’m asking for your help. Thank you,
Do me a favor and share this with all the right people. We cannot leave this election to chance.
