THE President of the United States is the world's most colourful and publicised billionaire. Here's the lowdown on all things Donald Trump. Where did Donald Trump grow up and was his family wealthy? Donald Trump was born on June 14, 1946, the fourth child of real estate tycoon Fred Trump. The Trump family was wealthy and lived in a mansion in the Queens area of New York. As a 13-year-old, Donald was sent to a military academy after he started misbehaving at school. Now 71, he boasts that he made money "the good old-fashioned way" but he first got into real estate with a "small" $1million loan from his father and helped manage the family's housing portfolio in the New York area. He took control of the company in 1971 and renamed it the Trump Organisation - shifting from residential sales in Brooklyn and Queens to swanky projects in Manhattan. The company transformed the rundown Commodore Hotel into the Grand Hyatt before developing the most famous Trump landmark, the 68-storey Trump … [Read more...] about How old is Donald Trump, how much is the US President’s net worth, when did he and Melania get married and how many children does he have?

AIR Force One is said to be the ultimate symbol of the US President's power and authority. The aircraft prominently bears the the American flag on its outside, making it instantly recognisable. Here's what we know... What is Air Force One? Air Force One is one of two specially modified Boeing 747-200B jets which carries the US President. Modified Boeing 747-200s have been serving presidents since 1987 but the company have been looking after presidents for more than half a century. The 4,000sq feet plane can act as a mobile command centre in the event of an attack on the United States. In 1943, President Franklin D Roosevelt flew in a Boeing B-314 Dixie Clipper to Casablanca - the first time a sitting US president had travelled overseas by air. The plane is now seen as the original Air Force One but it wasn't until the late 1950s that Boeing built the first presidential aircraft the VC 137A in the late 1950s. President Dwight Eisenhower was the first to use it, on a 19-day … [Read more...] about What is Air Force One? Donald Trump’s Boeing 747 200B used by the US President for his UK trip
A HANDWRITING expert has analysed Donald Trump's signature. The US President, who recently met Kim Jong-un to discuss his controversial nuclear weapons programme, has signed dozens of executive orders since he took office. What did the handwriting analysis reveal about the President's autograph? Tracy Trussell, of the British Institute of Graphologists, has looked at Trump’s signatures and said that the way he writes indicates a lot of characteristics about the US President. Ms Trussell said: “His signature transmits wild ambition, dynamism, bravery and fearlessness. “He's hungry for power and has both determination and stubbornness in spades.” She added that her assessment of his writing style suggested he wasn’t much of a listener but “undoubtedly a tough negotiator – he excels at being hard lined, bold and direct.” She added the length of his letters indicates “he’s not quite as inflexible potentially as people … [Read more...] about Donald Trump’s signature – here is what a handwriting analysis reveals about the President’s autograph
AS President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief of its military, Donald Trump has the biggest nuclear arsenal in history at his disposal. Trump has made frequent references to America's nuclear capability and has famously said the power he wields is "very, very scary". But is he the only man authorised to press the button? Could President Trump start World War 3? Trump was given access to the launch codes in one of his first tasks as Commander-in-Chief. Reports said he always carries the so-called Gold Codes on his person, printed on a credit-card sized piece of plastic nicknamed "the biscuit". If he is away from the White House, Trump will be accompanied by a military aide who carries the "nuclear football" - a briefcase containing a mobile hub linked to the strategic defence system. Once a launch has been ordered, a short code is sent to sites where crews will authenticate them before launching. Trump previously insisted he would not recklessly launch nuclear action, … [Read more...] about Does Donald Trump have the nuclear launch codes and what has the US president said about North Korea?
Donald Trump has outlived the “axis of adults” that was supposed to guide and shape his foreign policy. He’s run through two national security advisers, innumerable lawyers and lower-level aides, an attorney general, an array of Cabinet secretaries and, any day now, the second of two White House chiefs of staff. He’s dumped the ideologist who helped elect him and never really clarified what his “America First” campaign slogan was all about anyways. But since we launched The Global Politico days after his inauguration, Trump has more than followed through on his election pledge to shake up the Washington establishment of both parties when it comes to America’s position in the world. Each week, we’ve watched as he’s reoriented — or tried to — U.S. policy toward everywhere from Iran to North Korea, Russia to our North American neighbors. In 67 episodes over the last year and 85 days, I’ve been privileged to host NATO … [Read more...] about Just how dangerous is Donald Trump?
