I would like to begin with a quote from an incredible American Entrepreneur, Donald Trump, which goes "My policy is to learn from the past, focus on the present, and dream about the future."

In 1990, he underwent a debt so large from the range of 975 million to almost two billion dollars where he almost went bankrupt. He had to hand over a lot of holdings to the creditor bank but by the end of 1990s, he bounced back. "The best investor is one who learns from a downfall and picks themselves back up and just learns from their mistake."(Rich Dad Poor Dad)

Donald John Trump was born in June 14, 1946, in New York, NY. He was the third generation in his family, coming from a family of businessmen. Fred Trump, the father of Donald taught Donald all the entrepreneurial skills he knows.

He bore another child with this woman by the name of Tiffany, which was born in 1993 and again he separated from Marla in 1997. Donald is seen with woman all the time so nobody ever knows if he is single or not.

Donald Trump even with a downfall still grew to gain stronger, richer and wiser. A man that Forbes estimates his net worth to be at 1.4 billion but Trump says it's more like 3.7 billion.

He is one that shall be remembered not for the money he made but rather for the remarkable turn around this man made since nobody in history has done such a thing.
