Donald Trump's Educacation

Donald Trump was born in Queens New York on June 14, 1946.

He went to Ford-ham University, a Jesuit school in the Bronx, for two years, before transferring to the University of Pennsylvania and studied economics for two years, graduating in 1968 with a bachelor’s degree. He took undergraduate classes at Penn’s famed Wharton School of Business.

Donald Trump's Occupation Before Entering the Race

Trump began his career at his father's real estate company, which focused on middle-class rental housing in the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. During his undergraduate study, one of Trump's first projects was the revitalization of the foreclosed Swifton Village apartment complex in Cincinnati, Ohio, which his father had purchased for $5.7 million in 1962. Fred and Donald Trump became involved in the project and, with a $500,000 investment, turned the 1,200-unit complex's occupancy rate from 34% to 100%. In 1972, the Trump Organization sold Swifton Village for $6.75 million.

Why He Chose to Enter the Race

Donald Trump said that automatic budget cuts, or sequester, does not go far enough and Congress must reduce spending further to address impending increases in the deficit. Trump called for securing the southern border and indicated that he believes half of the undocumented residents in America are criminals. In 2013 at CPAC, the businessman said Republicans should block any path to citizenship or voting status for undocumented immigrants but should expand legal immigration from Europe. In addition, Trump would give a legal status to foreign students who complete a degree at an American university. Those are a few things that Trump would do if he were elected president.

Donald Trump on Gun Control

Donald Trump is against gun control. He says It’s often argued that the American murder rate is high because guns are more available here than in other countries. Democrats want to confiscate all guns, which is a dumb idea because only the law-abiding citizens would turn in their guns and the bad guys would be the only ones left armed. The Republicans walk the NRA line and refuse even limited restrictions.

Donald Trump on Immigration

Trump wants to build a fence, deploy 25,000 additional border agents, utilize Predator drones.Trump said there has been “mediocre success rates of the current crop of virtual fences that have been developed and tested.” However, large fences have been successful in various parts of Arizona. That’s why America needs a large border fence and more agents to stop the endless flood of alien criminals who cross everyday.

Donald Trump on Economy

Trump’s economic plan recommends streamlining tax brackets, from seven to four, with the top tax rate cut to 25 percent. American families who make less than $50,000 pay nothing. He wants to slash the corporate tax rate to 15 percent, eliminate deductions and loopholes, and do away with the death tax, among other things. An analysis by the conservative Tax Foundation found that Trump’s plan would cut federal revenue by around $10 trillion over the next decade, even accounting for growth.

Donald Trump on Foreign Relations

Trump seems to believe that the United States should not expend its foreign-policy energy and power unless its allies, partners, or other stakeholders have a similar commitment to solving the issue at hand. That’s basically the opposite of the current consensus among Washington’s foreign-policy and national security leaders.

Donald Trump on Military

Donald Trump vowed Tuesday to offer frustrated veterans subsidized private health care, charging that illegal immigrants receive better care than the nation's wounded soldiers. "We have illegal immigrants that are treated better by far than our veterans," Trump declared "It's not going to happen anymore." He called for a military buildup so broad that no foe would challenge the U.S., as well as a new health care deal for veterans stuck on waiting lists in hospitals run by the Department of Veterans Affairs. In doing so, he again swiped at people who are in the country illegally, a refrain that has powered his campaign since the start.

Would Donald Trump Make a Good President?

I feel like Donald Trump wouldn't make a good president because he doesn't have any patience, temperament, or self-discipline.
