Whether you love him or despise him, the 45th president of the United States is one icon of reckoning in the political, economic, and Twitter world. The mogul in real estate is not even after the perks for the presidency with claims that he is running a higher purpose of restoring the glory of the U.S.A and that he is a just a megalomaniac with nothing better to do currently but rile up the U.S.
As a Republican, President Trump has been on the limelight even before he was elected into power, and as a leader of the, well, considered to be, superpower nation, his life seems to be filled with ruckus from every corner of this world. From battles with other presidents, celebrity feuds, and his in-house administration, Trump continues to amaze everyone with his leadership style. However, there are some fascinating factual and fictitious things about president Trump that you may need to know, maybe you know some but haven't realized yet. Let's take a peek.
1. Immigrants, Migrants, and Migrancy.
Everyone knows about the president's rants on building the Mexican border; his dislike for immigrants continues to be in the spotlight and is one topic he openly talks about.
What would surprise you is that President Trump's grandparents and mother were immigrants. Fredrich Trump emigrated from Karstadt, Palatinate, which is present-day Germany at the age of 16. The mother Mary Anne Trump was born in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, she emigrated to the United States in 1930 and became a naturalized citizen in 1942.
2. His family is just bigger than you may imagine.
President Trump has five children; Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric are from his marriage with Ivana Zelnickova; Tiffany was born while he has married to Marla Marples and the 14 year Barron Trump from the president's marriage with Melania. He is also the proud grandfather of eight.
3. The outspoken speaking style.
He is one president that does not have to worry about his speech being plagiarized once he exits the office. President Trump is known to be a distinctive speaker, and as noted by Vox, he usually jumps to an entirely new thought before he finishes one. Name it, the unscripted, false starts, parentheticals, and unfinished sentences, all attributed to his New York upbringing.
Psychologically, he indicates scattered thoughts, short attention spans and lack of analytical skills.
4. His Love for Fast Foods.
For the love of fast food, well, you ain't alone in this, President Trump is known to be a good fan of fast foods. During his campaign trails, he admitted to enjoy the Mc Donald's and KFC, which, to be accurate, has been confirmed by several of his pictures taken while sitting down to his meals in his private plane.
5. The Jinxed Personality
He was a joke, has been a joke, joked his way into the presidency, and continues to be a joke. Have you ever taken keen note of President Trump's behaviors, speech, and general lifestyle? The big personality attributed to Trump, according to the Atlantic, does not add up; he seems to be supremely cognizant of the fact that he always acts. Being the extrovert, social ambition and aggressiveness, and a reputable disagreeability.
Well, with a German origin, it may be right to assert, posit, or just reaffirm the speculations that his psychological motivations and the potential psychiatric diagnoses give him the narcissistic personality disorder.
6. Are you worried about his personality? He hasn't changed at all.
The jinxed personality is just but a realization since he came into power. From his childhood, the aggressiveness and the big personality has been with him. He is termed as a miniature by most of his childhood friends; he is reported to have been a bully while in school, he once gave a music teacher a black eye when he was 13 years of age, and he was also sent from his family's luxurious home to a military boarding school.
To attest to this, he himself confirmed in an interview that his temperament hasn't changed at all.
7. He does not wine but has a wine brand.
It May seem like his love for the fast ones has clouded his eyes from the strong ones. President Trump does not drink, has never had a drink, and never plans to drink. In as much this majestic man may have a valid reason to maintain his sobriety more so during the turbulent state of the U.S and a state of messy foreign relations, economic crises, and environmental concerns, he owns a wine brand.
The Trump Winery was founded in 2011 and owned by Eric Trump, and to the surprise of many, he just enjoys his name on the wine bottles, the "Trump" brand.
8. He has been Flagged by Twitter.
At the moment, the State of Minnesota, Minneapolis, is under constant riots; blazes are rising everywhere after the murder of George Floyd by police officers during his arrest. In his Twitter world, President Trump responded with the tweet in which he termed the protestors as Thugs. His tweet read, "These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won't let that happen.
Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!
9. His Casinos have declared bankruptcy six times.
According to the Washington Post, Trump's companies have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection six times. Accurately, his Taj Mahal opened in 1990 in Atlantic City defaulted on interest payment to the bondholder six months after opening. He could not keep up with the debts, and two of his other Atlantic City Casinos declared bankruptcy in the year 1992. His fourth property, the Plaza Hotel in New York, also declared bankruptcy in the year 1992, and to more, the Trump Hotels and Casinos filed for bankruptcy again in 2004 after a $1.8 billion debt while during the 2008 recession, Trump Entertainment declared bankruptcy in 2009.
He is a six-time bankrupt business person.
10. He Can't just get enough of hotties.
With a history of 3 wives and still in his seventies, President Trump might just get himself another wife for his retirement. Talking about hotties, he has been known to enjoy the company of ladies which seemed sinister at first until more photos from his younger age gave us limelight of his insatiable appetite for "holding 'em close."
11. He Tweets more than most social media personalities.
He addresses his nation through twitter and enjoys the conversations that his rants cause to the public. It is estimated that he writes almost 372 tweets per month and an average of 12 per day.
Needless to say, he enjoys a total of 80.5 million followers on Twitter; he has a reason to keep his audience discussing before he posts again.
12. He only follows ONLY 46 people on Twitter.
It may be insane to note, but probably President Trump only follows 46 people, among whom are his family members and close government associates.
Donald Trump is always in the spotlight, and maybe for the wrong reasons, he has almost the whole world ever talking about him, his government, and his life altogether. Maybe these are just common knowledge; we are yet to explore more about this president of a kind.
