Who is Trump? 

Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, politician, television personality, author, and candidate for the Republican nomination for President of the United States in the 2016 election.

Trump is the Chairman and President of The Trump Organization, as well as the founder of the gaming and hotel enterprise, Trump Entertainment Resorts, now owned by Carl Icahn.

Trump is a son of New York City real estate developer Fred Trump and worked for his father's firm, Elizabeth Trump & Son, while attending college.

After graduating in 1968 he joined the company, and in 1971 was given control, later renaming the company The Trump Organization. Trump has since built casinos, golf courses, hotels, and other properties, many of which bear his name.

Trump and his businesses, as well as his three marriages, have received prominent media exposure. He hosted The Apprentice, a popular NBC reality show, from 2004 to 2015.

Trump first campaigned for the U.S. presidency in 2000, winning two Reform Party primaries. On June 16, 2015, he again announced his candidacy for president, this time as a Republican.

Trump became known for his opposition to illegal immigration and free trade agreements, as well as his frequently non-interventionist views on foreign policy, and quickly emerged as the Republican nomination front-runner. As of April 19, 2016, he has won 22 contests in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries.
