Donald Trump is America’s most famous real-estate developer, socialite, author, and television personality—and one of its richest. With a net worth of $2 billion, Trump has been a major figure in both domestic and international real estate since the late 1960s, and continues to build and diversify his business empire. Trump was raised in New York City and attended Fordham University and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Immediate after earning his degree in Economics, he returned to New York and went to work for his father’s real estate company, the Trump Organization, beginning with success turning the bankrupt Commodore Hotel into the Grand Hyatt.
Other Trump properties include Trump Tower, valued at $288 million, Trump World Tower, valued at $290, and a variety of Trump resort casinos located around the United States. In addition, the Trump name is licensed to properties worldwide, earning Trump an estimated $562 million. Since its premiere in 2003, Trump has also earned two Emmy Awards for his role in the reality show The Apprentice, on which he appears as himself and for which he is reportedly paid $3 million per episode. Trump married Ivana Zelnickova (later Ivana Trump) in 1977, and together they had three children: Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. However, the couple split in 1992, and in 1993 he married his much-publicized mistress, Marla Maples, who gave birth to a daughter, Tiffany. They divorced in 1999, and in 2004, Trump married Melania Knauss, who gave birth to his fifth child, William Barron Trump.
