Donald John Trump was born in Queens, New York, on June 14, 1946. His father, Fred Trump, was a highly successful real estate developer. The elder Trump was of German heritage, and his wife, Mary McLeod, of Scottish background. Their son Donald was the second youngest of five children. He was educated at the New York Military Academy and the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce at the University of Pennsylvania. Even before he graduated he was drawn to real estate and construction, and as a young man he took over his father’s firm, renaming it the Trump Organization.

The Trump Organization soon became involved in a myriad of projects, including hotels, resorts, residential and commercial buildings, casinos, and golf courses, both in the United States and abroad. His first of many books was The Art of the Deal, published in 1987. In 2004 he launched the Apprentice (later The Celebrity Apprentice), a popular television series that aired until 2015. During the 2016 primary season Trump defeated more than a dozen seasoned rivals to win the Republican nomination and went on to win the election over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. His campaign slogan was “Make America Great Again,” and he moved swiftly to reinvigorate “Buy American and Hire American” policies. He signed a major tax reform bill into law and directed the reduction of federal regulations intended to secure a long-running economic expansion and a historically low unemployment rate. His trade policies encouraged tariffs on foreign aluminum and steel and a series of renegotiations of trade agreements with Mexico, Canada, China, Japan, and South Korea.

Other priorities included Supreme Court and federal judiciary appointments, tackling the opioid crisis, seeking to reduce the cost of prescription drugs, and improving health care for veterans. Trump’s commitment to “America first” abroad shaped not only his trade and tariff policies but his approach to immigration and overseas commitments. At his urging, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) member states increased their contributions to the alliance. Trump recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, and moved the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, recognizing the ancient city as Israel’s capital.

His approach to the problem of nuclear proliferation included applying maximum economic pressure on both North Korea and Iran. Trump increased the budget for the U.S. military, and during his administration the self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS), which had taken territory in Iraq and Syria and was responsible for inciting terrorist attacks, was defeated.

President Trump and his wife, Melania Trump, have one son, Barron. President Trump also has four adult children from previous marriages: Donald Jr., Ivanka, Eric, and Tiffany, as well as nine grandchildren.

"The most important element to building wealth is to love what you are doing." (Donald J. Trump, How to Build a Fortune)

I'll be honest, I only listened to the first CD of this program. The reason for this is because the first CD has a live interview with Donald Trump on the topic of How to Build a Fortune. The rest of the CDs are with experts that Trump University has selected for their programs. This program also includes two workbooks titled How to Build a Fortune and Get An Attitude: Positive Persistence.

The following are some notes I took from listening to the interview with Trump on this program:

• Money should never be the central focus, I think that happiness should be the central focus.

• Money doesn't buy happiness, but it makes life a lot easier.

• The most important element to building wealth is to love what you are doing.

• Unless you are really happy, you'll never be really successful.

• The most important thing is love what you do.

• The second most important thing is never, ever give up. Never quit. Never ever stop.

• If you love what you are doing, it is much easier not to stop because you love it, you just do it.

• Debt is a beautiful thing in good times, it is a terrible thing in bad times.

• You have to know how to manage it (debt).

• You see the same people on your way up, as you see on your way down.

• You always have to be prepared for the tough times.

• Focus on the bad times because the good times take care of themselves.

• You have to see where the world is going in terms of current events, not only in business sense, but in a political sense, and even in a social sense, in order to be a great investor.

• You have to know exactly where you are at a given certain time (in respect to income & expenses).

• The smartest and the best people are those people who can predict markets.

• Location is always important (real estate investing).

• The time to buy is when things are bad; the time to sell is when things are good.

• The interest rate and the value of the dollar (real estate investing).

• The best way to minimize your risk is to know what you are doing.

• If you have knowledge, if you know what you are doing, you can really minimize your risk.

• Having knowledge is the key ingredient to being successful and to making money.

• Put yourself in the shoes of the person you are negotiating with and really get a good understanding of the person in those shoes, you get a good understanding of what you can do and what you can't do and what you can get away with.

• You have to put yourself in the shoes of the person you are negotiating with i.e. are they desperate to sell?, do they have a lot of money?, do they need the money?, do they need this deal?, don't they need this deal?

• Put yourself in the other person's position.

• Start from an extraordinary low number (negotiating and making an offer).

• Throw the figure out and it should be so incredibly low that it sets their sights lower (negotiating and making an offer).

• Show a great track record even in the smaller deals.

• If you don't say it maybe no one else will (negotiating and making an offer).

• To do the bigger deals you have to borrow money.

• Every once in a while you have to fish or cut the bait; you have to be able to leave something (Putting the three-legged horse out to pasture).

• Never give up in the big picture, never give up in the small picture, but every once in a while, you have to take a detour.

• "I never ever lost a game, but on occasion I'd run out of time." ~ Vince Lombardi

• The theme of your life should be that you don't quit and you certainly don't quit easily.

• The great successes are those who were able to take problems and make assets out of them.

• The sailing is not always smooth (business).

• If you are not going to be a staunch problem solver, perhaps you should be working for someone else or doing something else. And you are probably not very entrepreneurial.

• Problems are assets in disguise in many cases.

• If you have a problem, you solve that problem. If you don't like solving problems, perhaps, you shouldn't be doing what we are teaching at Trump university.

• If you don't love it, you are not going to be very good at it.

• If you can feel that momentum leaving, there is nothing wrong with getting out. Stopping while your ahead.

• Learning about risk is very important.

• It is action and action alone that transforms knowledge into results.

I have a voracious appetite for reading books about building wealth and personal investing. I have read many books before, so this audio set was just a reminder more than anything. You go get a year of free subscription to the trumponline.com which is good. Listen to the section with Gary Eldred. It was good. Definitely worth it.
