Born in Queens, New York, on June 14, 1946, he was the fourth of the five children of Fredrick C. Trump, a builder and real estate developer, and Mary MacLeod Trump. Trump was an assertive, energetic child, and his parents sent him to New York Military School at 13, hoping that would put his energy to good use. He did well at the academy, and was a star athlete and student leader when he graduated in 1964. He went to Fordham University for 2 years then transferred to the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania. He graduated in 1968 with a degree in economics.

- He almost lost his hair in a bet, when him and WWE chairman Vince McMahon had a bet and hired a pro-wrestler on their behalf. Trump won, and assisted in the shaving of McMahon's head.
- Speaking of his hair, his hairstyle is achieved by blow-drying it forwards, then combing it backwards.
- He has the 2,327th star in the Hollywood walk of fame due to his role in NBC's "The Apprentice."
- He is the only president with his own board game. Titled "Trump", and released in 1989 and was ultimately a failure after bad reviews and low sales.
