Donald Trump's Youth

By age 13 it was evident to his parents that he lacked discipline, so they sent him to the New York Military Academy. Trump did well there both socially and academically, and became a star athlete and student leader by the time he graduated in 1964

How It Started

: "On October 7, 1999, Trump announced the formation of an exploratory committee to inform his decision of whether or not he should seek the Reform Party's nomination for the presidential race of 2000. Later he told Fortune magazine: "If I feel I could win--win- -then I'd run. I think I have a good chance... Hey, I've got my name on half the major buildings in New York... I went to the Wharton School of Finance, which is the No. 1 school. I'm intelligent. Some people would say I'm very, very, very intelligent." He added that he had written three best-selling books, with the clarification, "Not bestsellers. No. 1 bestsellers." Then he concluded with, "You know I am the highest-paid speaker in the country?"
