Donald Trump's Educacation

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 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 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.
