Born on June 14, 1946, Donald Trump is the 45th president of the United States. Prior to his presidency, he was a businessman known for his ownership of The Trump Organization. When he took over his father’s real estate business, he expanded its operations to developing skyscrapers, hotels, casinos, and golf courses in several countries.
Trump then gained wider popularity as a television personality where he produced and hosted the reality series The Apprentice from 2004 to 2015. He also owned the Miss Universe brand from 1996 to 2015. He entered politics afterward and became the Republican nominee. In a surprise victory, he won the 2016 presidential race.
During his presidency, he implemented controversial policies and withdrew from international negotiations, like the Paris Agreement on climate change. Many of his policies were criticized, though others have been somewhat considered accomplishments, like the regulations on vaping, faster approval of generics, and the creation of the Space Force.
In December 2019, he was impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress for getting Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden, but he was acquitted from these charges. In his final year as president, Trump continued to face crises with the global pandemic and nationwide protests following the death of George Floyd.
He then ran for second term presidency but lost to Joe Biden, alleging election fraud. After his January 6, 2021 political rally where his supporters stormed the Capitol after he had urged them to “take back our country” by marching to the Capitol and “showing strength, he was impeached for a second time. This time, it was for “incitement of insurrection”. This makes him the only president in the history of the country to be impeached twice.
