Donald J. Trump is the 45th President of the United States. He believes the United States has incredible
potential and will go on to exceed even its remarkable achievements of the past. His campaign slogan for
President was, “Make America Great Again,” and that is exactly what he is doing.
Donald J. Trump defines the American success story. Throughout his life he has continually set the
standards of business and entrepreneurial excellence, especially in real estate, sports, and
entertainment. Mr. Trump built on his success in private life when he entered into politics and public
service. He remarkably won the Presidency in his first ever run for any political office.
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Finance, Mr. Trump followed in his
father’s footsteps into the world of real estate development, making his mark New York City. There, the
Trump name soon became synonymous with the most prestigious of addresses in Manhattan and,
subsequently, throughout the world.
Mr. Trump is also an accomplished author. He has written more than fourteen bestsellers. His first book,
The Art of the Deal, is considered a business classic.
Mr. Trump announced his candidacy for the Presidency on June 16, 2015. He then accepted the
Republican nomination for President of the United States in July of 2016, having defeated seventeen
other contenders during the Republican primaries.
On November 8, 2016, Mr. Trump was elected President in the largest Electoral College landslide for a
Republican in 28 years. Mr. Trump won more than 2,600 counties nationwide, the most since President
Ronald Reagan in 1984. And he received the votes of more than 62 million Americans, the most ever for a
Republican candidate. These voters, in delivering a truly national victory and historic moment, rallied
behind Mr. Trump’s commitment to rebuilding our country and disrupting the political status quo that had failed to deliver results. However, Hillary Clinton has won the popular vote by more than 2.86 million
ballots, the final tally in the US presidential election has revealed.
Mr. Trump won, in part, because he campaigned in places Republicans have had difficulty winning—Flint,
Michigan, charter schools in inner-city Cleveland, and Hispanic churches in Florida. He went there
because he wanted to bring his message of economic empowerment to all Americans. Millions of new
Republicans trusted Mr. Trump with their vote because of his commitment to delivering prosperity
through a reformed tax code, an improved regulatory environment, and better trade deals. President
Trump’s victory has brought Americans of all backgrounds together, and he is committed to delivering
results for the Nation every day he serves in office.

son, Barron. Mr. Trump also has four adult children, Don Jr., Ivanka, Eric, and Tiffany, as well as eight
