Donald Trump may not be the most loved person in the United States and he also may noit be most people’s favorite human in the world, but he is undoubtedly one of the most controversial leaders of the free world history has seen. Much has been said and written about him since he assumed command of the US oval office on January 20, 2017, but the following facts will help you understand this unconventional president better.
Here Are Some Facts We Know About Donald Trump
1. He is religious
Trump does not only believe in God, but he also claims to take the religious rituals seriously as well. He belongs to the Presbyterian denomination and has said that he tries to receive the Holy Communion as often as he can. He has a personal pastor and the only book he likes more than his book, The Art of the Deal is the Holy Bible.
2. Trump is healthier than he looks
The United States President has not soiled the sanctity of his organs with such substances as alcohol, cigarettes, marijuana, or drugs. As hard as this may be to reconcile with his playboy persona, it is true.
Trump has many reasons for this self-discipline, but the chief of them all is because he had a front-row seat to how his brother Fred Jr. struggled with alcoholism until he lost his life at age 43. However, that did not stop him from capitalizing on it though as he launched his own brand of vodka in 2006, but the prices did not sit well with the masses and the venture was very short-lived.
3. His marriages questions his anti-immigrant policies
For someone who has strong opinions about immigrants, Donald Trump has had a preference for women who are not of American descent. Only one of his three wives hails from Georgia in the United States, the other two wives were of Eastern Europe and his current wife, Melania Knauss is originally from Slovenia.
4. Trump’s relationship with his daughter has been the subject of many headlines
Trump has hinted that he would not mind treading the path of Woody Allen who married Soon-Yi, his alleged daughter. The 45th US president cannot seem to stop making inappropriate remarks about his own daughter, Ivanka Trump and he was even actually caught on camera saying he would date her if they were not related. This was among one of his most decent comments as he has made countless remarks about his daughter which many see to be inappropriate. Well, whatever the case may be, they seem to enjoy a rather too close father-daughter relationship.
5. He is sensitive about his net worth
In 2005, the author of TrumpNation, quoted from three different sources that Donald Trump was worth between $150 million and $250 million in opposition to his claim of being a billionaire. Trump did not take the high road on the issue as he sued the writer for libel even though he did not win. So it shows Trump really dislikes it when people allegedly release wrong figures as his net worth.
6. He has a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame
In addition to his reality TV hosting stint, Trump has also made multiple cameo appearances on the silver screen. Between advertisements, music videos, films, and television series, Trump’s filmography is a long one. This stint began in the 1980s and has been put on hold since he became president. He currently has a star on the Hollywood walk of fame alongside accomplished actors like Julie Andrews and Pierce Brosnan.
7. Donald Trump has been accused of sexual impropriety over two dozen times
Between the 1970s and now, Trump has found himself a defendant in over 24 cases of sexual impropriety, usually against women. He is often quick to dismiss these accusations by calling his accusers, liars, but he is yet to make good on his promise to sue them all since his election in 2016.
8. He was voted “Ladies Man” in his senior year
In what must have been a popularity poll back in his days at the military academy, Trump won the ‘Ladies Man’ title in his class during his senior year. Though physical charm may not be one of his strong suits now, pulling it off over five decades ago must not have been much of a hassle for him, as he most certainly had the looks.
9. Trump’s wife is his hairstylist
One of his most prominent physical attributes, his hair, has been a subject of debate several times because of how unreal it often looks. While Trump has attributed its neatness to his simple hair care routine, the credit for the styling goes to his third wife, Melania.
10. He has an irrational fear of germs
Donald Trump’s awkward handshakes have made the headlines several times, and he has made it known in multiple interviews over the years that this is an implication of his germaphobia. He cannot bear to shake unwashed hands any more than he can stand someone sneezing or coughing near him. This fear is a real issue for the US president, and he makes sure anyone he works with knows it.
