Donald Trump

Jackson M.

Background

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.

Political Expierience

Although he has had association with the "Birther" movement, he has no other experience with politics.

In the ISIS situation, he wants to bomb Syria as much as possible, refuse to train rebels, and get ground soldiers over there. He would also like to impose taxes on trades from China and other countries from across the Pacific.

He is aiming to end Obamacare and replace it with something "less costly and better for the people".

He thinks that "education should be at a local level" and "not run by the bureaucrats in Washington". He thinks the government shouldn't make money off of student loans.

Economy

He wants to get natives and legal immigrant workers instead of illegal ones, as he thinks natives and legals are faster workers, and raise the prevailing wage.

Taxes

He thinks that the fact the richer people pay less taxes is unfair (which it is), that we should either raise taxes on the rich or lower taxes on the middle class/poor. He also thinks we should tax the countries for trading with us.

Climate Change

He clearly is not a big believer in global warming and thinks that China made it up to make US factories less competitive.

He agrees with Jeb Bush on the fact that it's not the amount of guns but the mental health of people and violence in communities.
