Name: Donald John Trump, Sr.
Born: 14 June, 1946
Occupation: Real Estate Mogul, Entrepreneur, TV Personality, Author
After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics in 1968, Trump began working at his father’s real estate company. A short 3 years later, he took complete control of the company. At that time, he moved the business to Manhattan and changed the company’s name to The Trump Organization. Trump began undertaking significantly larger real estate projects such as developing the vacant Penn Central yards located on the West Side. Because there was 40 year tax abatement on those properties, Trump immediately began to make money hand over fist. He did have some financial trouble over the years however; his wealth is still intact even during the current recession.
Trump became the executive producer of the TV show, The Apprentice in 2003. The show is a competition where people vie for a high powered position within one of Trump’s many companies and holding. During the first season, Trump was paid 700,000 dollars for the complete season. Because of the incredible success of the show, Trump now earns a whopping 3 million dollars per episode. That over the top salary makes Trump one of the highest paid television celebrities of all time. A star was placed on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame in 2007 honoring Trump’s contribution to the television world.
Trump seems to be a jack of all trades. Every presidential election year since 2000, Trump has talked publicly about running for President of the United States. Thus far, each year he changed his mind and endorsed another potential candidate. Trump has written many, many books and owns the Miss Universe Organization. With the various ways that Trump makes a living, we estimate his net worth to be 2,900,000,000 dollars.
So, how much is $ 2,900,000,000 really?
Trump is always well dressed and his hands are perfectly manicured. He could have his nails manicured every day for 176,560 days. That is actually 483 years of manicures so; Trump would surely need to have someone take over his nail appointments when he’s gone. But then he has enough to cover the salary of 76,500 PAs – or to hire one PA for 76,500 years…
Since everybody loves donuts; Trump could liquidate his assets and buy 4,350,000,000 donuts. He could give every person living in the U.S. 14 donuts each. Or, he could help to educate some kids. With his great wealth, he could pay college tuition for four years at a public university for 95,332 students – or send Dan Quayle to colleague for 381,328 years.
