President of the United States(Net worth US$3.1 billion (March 2019)
Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is the 45th and current president of the United States. Before entering politics, he was a businessman and television personality.
Donald John Trump was born on June 14, 1946, at the Jamaica Hospital in the borough of Queens, New York City. His parents were Frederick Christ Trump, a real estate developer, and Scottish-born housewife Mary Anne MacLeod. Trump grew up in the Jamaica Estates neighborhood of Queens.
Trump grew up with three elder siblings Maryanne, Fred Jr., and Elizabeth as well as a younger brother named Robert. Maryanne was a Federal Appeals Court judge on the Third Circuit, inactive since February 2017; she retired in February 2019, rendering moot a judicial conduct investigation into her alleged participation in fraudulent tax schemes with her siblings.
Trump has five children by three marriages, as well as nine grandchildren. In 1977, Trump married Czech model Ivana Winklmayr (née Zelníčková), at Marble Collegiate Church in Manhattan, in a ceremony performed by the Reverend Norman Vincent Peale. They had three children: Donald Jr. (b. 1977), Ivanka (b. 1981), and Eric (b. 1984). Ivana became a naturalized United States citizen in 1988. The couple divorced in 1992, following Trump’s affair with actress Marla Maples. In October 1993, Maples gave birth to Trump’s daughter, who was named Tiffany in honor of high-end retailer Tiffany & Company. Maples and Trump were married two months later in December 1993 in Manhattan’s Trump-owned (at that time) Plaza Hotel. They divorced in 1999, and Tiffany was raised by Marla in California.
In 1998, Trump met Slovenian model Melania Knauss. She became his third wife when they married in 2005 at Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach, Florida. In 2006, she gained United States citizenship and gave birth to a son, Barron. Melania became First Lady when Trump took office as president in January 2017.
Trump is a Presbyterian. His ancestors were Lutheran on his paternal grandfather’s side in Germany and Presbyterian on his mother’s side in Scotland. His parents married in a Presbyterian church in Manhattan in 1936. As a child, he attended the First Presbyterian Church in Jamaica, Queens, where he had his confirmation. In the 1970s, his parents joined the Marble Collegiate Church in Manhattan, part of the Reformed Church.
Donald Trump’s Wealth
In 1982, Trump was listed on the initial Forbes List of wealthy individuals as having a share of his family’s estimated $200 million net worth. His financial losses in the 1980s caused him to be dropped from the list between 1990 and 1995, and reportedly obliged him to borrow from his siblings’ trusts in 1993. In its 2019 billionaires ranking, Forbes estimated Trump’s net worth at $3.1 billion[a] (715th in the world, 259th in the U.S.) making him one of the richest politicians in American history and the first billionaire American president.
