President Donald John "The Donald" Trump Sr. is an American businessman and politician who is the 45th President of the United States.
During his career, Trump has built office towers, hotels, casinos, golf courses, and other branded facilities worldwide.
Trump was born and raised in New York City and received a bachelor's degree in economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971 he was given control of his father Fred Trump's real estate and construction firm and later renamed it The Trump Organization. Trump has appeared at the Miss USA pageants, which he owned from 1996 to 2015, and has made cameo appearances in films and television series. He hosted and co-produced The Apprentice, a reality television series on NBC, from 2004 to 2015. As of 2016, he was listed by Forbes as the 324th wealthiest person in the world, and 156th in the United States.
He sought the Reform Party presidential nomination in 2000, but withdrew before voting began. In June 2015, Trump announced his candidacy for president as a Republican. In May 2016, his remaining Republican rivals suspended their campaigns, and in July he was formally nominated for president at the 2016 Republican National Convention.
Trump has five children by three marriages, and has eight grandchildren. His first two marriages ended in divorces.
Trump married his first wife, Czech model Ivana Zelníčková, on April 7, 1977, at the Marble Collegiate Church in Manhattan in a ceremony performed by the Reverend Norman Vincent Peale. They had three children: son Donald Jr. (born December 31, 1977), daughter Ivanka (born October 30, 1981), and son Eric (born January 6, 1984). Ivana Trump was granted an uncontested divorce in 1990.
Marla Maples gave birth to their daughter Tiffany, named after Tiffany & Company in 1993. Marla was raised by her mother in Calabasas, California, where she lived until her graduation from Viewpoint School. They married two months later on December 20, 1993. The couple formally separated in May 1997, with their divorce finalized in June 1999.
In 1998, Trump began a relationship with Slovene model Melania Knauss, who became his third wife. They were engaged in April 2004 and were married on January 22, 2005, at Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, on the island of Palm Beach, Florida, followed by a reception at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate. On March 20, 2006, she gave birth to their son, whom they named Barron William Trump.
