"A Reality TV Star?" How you "put it" is deliberately deceitful, duplicitous and disingenuous!
Donald John Trump, (born June 14, 1946, New York, New York, U.S.), 45th president of the United States (2017– ). Trump was a real-estate developer and businessman who built, owned, managed, and/or licensed his name to hotels, casinos, golf courses, resorts, and residential properties in the New York City area and around the world.
Donald Trump attended New York Military Academy (1959–64); Fordham University (1964–66); and the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Finance and Commerce (1966–68), where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in economics.
Upon his graduation Trump began working full-time for his father’s business, helping to manage its holdings of rental housing, then estimated at between 10,000 and 22,000 units. In 1974 he became president of the Trump-owned corporations and partnerships, which he later named the Trump Organization.
From the 1980s Trump also acquired scores of retail enterprises — including branded lines of clothing, cologne, food, and furniture.
In the early 21st century his private ownership of the Trump Organization, comprised some 500 companies
involved in a wide range of businesses, including hotels and resorts, residential properties, merchandise, and entertainment and television.
Donald J. Trump was for five decades before becoming President of the United States, a successful New York builder and businessman, whose enterprises then became international.
Donald J. Trump owned, produced and hosted the reality TV shows The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice from 2004 to 2015. During the majority of that time, The Apprentice had the #1 rating in TV reality shows.
Again, labeling him as merely a "reality TV star" is deliberately deceitful, duplicitous and disingenuous, as he was and is so much more!
Puts it very nicely don't you think!
