THE eldest daughter of Donald Trump has been credited by some as the reason he won the US presidential election.Ivanka Trump, a businesswoman in her own right, was reportedly a voice of reason during his successful bid to become President.Ahead of his inauguration into the role, she dismissed claims she would be filling in as a surrogate first lady.But their close father-daughter bond was clear when department store Nordstorm dumped Ivanka's clothing line.It apparently infuriated Trump so much that he "tweeted during intelligence briefing" to lash out at the retailer.Ivanka Trump is the daughter of Donald and his first wife Ivana - who divorced when she was nine years old.The businesswoman, former reality TV personality and fashion model grew up in the penthouse apartment of Manhattan’s Trump Tower - her bedroom commanding a view of Central Park.She has two brothers, Donald Jr and Eric, half-sister Tiffany and half-brother Barron.She married another multi-millionaire … [Read more...] about How old is Ivanka Trump, what’s her net worth, who is her husband Jared Kushner and what’s her clothing range?
Ask Trump biographers what the Republican candidate for president is like, and they’ll start free-associating, almost as though they can’t help but channel the man himself when they speak of him. Aggressive, rambling, unprincipled, materialistic, boastful, shrewd, undisciplined, mercurial and charismatic are some of the words they use to describe Trump. But two words stick out: narcissism and salesman. "He's a salesman, and he's selling himself - he believes in himself," Gwenda Blair, author of two books on Trump and the Trump family, told DW. "Very occasionally when someone gets to him with the idea that something he did was not successful, he reacts like he's been stung. He's visibly very disturbed by that and lashes out. It's a narcissistic wound." Biographer Timothy L. O'Brien, author of the book "TrumpNation," knows whereof Blair speaks. Trump unsuccessfully sued him for $5 billion (4.5 billion euros) for having the temerity to suggest that the … [Read more...] about Donald Trump: the maverick, narcissistic salesman
Throughout the US presidential election campaign, people were turning to the theories of Jewish-German philosopher Hannah Arendt (1906-1975) to better understand what was going on. A refugee from Nazi Germany, Arendt is perhaps best known for "The Banality of Evil," an essay published in "The New Yorker" about the trial of Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem. She dedicated her life to helping others understand how the Holocaust could occur and wrote several books that explore the human causes of such tragedies. In "The Origins of Totalitarianism," Arendt looks at the complicity of everyday people in such atrocities, a lesson that is worth exploring given the current political climate in the US, according to Roger Berkowitz, professor and head of the Hannah Arendt Center for Politics and Humanity at Bard College in New York. DW: Mr. Berkowitz, how can Hannah Arendt help us to understand the state of US politics today? Roger Berkowitz: First of all, Arendt helps us understand what Trump is … [Read more...] about What philosopher Hannah Arendt would say about Donald Trump
