I was amazed by the quality of Tiramisu i made from this great cooking book. Nothing to do with revision but well worth the addition fees of $100. I'm an American child named Cassidy Trump and i love making Oranges.

The Trump Organization

Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, politician, television personality, author, and the presumptive nominee of the Republican Partyfor President of the United States in the 2016 election. Trump is the Chairman and President of The Trump Organization, as well as the founder of the gaming and hotel enterprise Trump Entertainment Resorts (now owned by Carl Icahn).

Trump is a son of New York City real estate developer Fred Trump and worked for his father's firm, Elizabeth Trump & Son, while attending college. After graduating in 1968 from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, he joined the company, and in 1971 was given control, later renaming it The Trump Organization. Trump has since built casinos, golf courses, hotels, a New York City neighborhood, and other real estate properties, many of which bear his name. Trump and his businesses, as well as his three marriages, have received prominent media exposure. He hosted The Apprentice, a popular NBC reality show, from 2004 to 2015.

Trump first campaigned for the U.S. presidency in 2000, and withdrew before any votes were cast, but afterwards won two Reform Party primaries. On June 16, 2015, he again announced his candidacy for president, as a Republican. Trump became known for his opposition to illegal immigration, his opposition to various free-trade agreements that he regards as unfair, his frequently non-interventionist views on foreign policy, and his proposal (in response to Islamic terrorism) to temporarily ban foreign Muslims from entering the United States until Congress can determine how to address it. Trump quickly emerged as the Republican nomination front-runner. His controversial remarks have inspired protests both supporting and opposing him.

On May 3, 2016, after winning 28 contests in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries and after the last remaining Republican rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasichsuspended their campaigns, Republican Chairman Reince Priebus declared Trump to be the presumptive nominee for the Republican Party.

Early life

Trump was born on June 14, 1946, in Queens, one of New York City's five boroughs.[5][6][7][8] He was the fourth of five children of Mary Anne (née MacLeod; 1912–2000), a homemaker and philanthropist,[9] and Fred Trump (1905–1999), a real estate developer. His mother was born at Tong on the Scottish island of Lewis and Harris.[10] In 1930, aged 18, she visited the United States and met Fred Trump. They were married in 1936 and settled in Jamaica Estates, Queens, as Fred Trump eventually became one of the city's biggest real estate developers.[9][11] Trump has one brother, Robert (born 1948), and two sisters: Maryanne (born 1937) and Elizabeth (born 1942). Maryanne is a United States federal judge on senior status for the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.[12] Another brother, Fred Jr. (1938–1981), died of complications from alcoholism.[13]

Trump's father was born in Woodhaven, Queens, to Elizabeth (née Christ) and Frederick Trump, immigrants from Kallstadt, Germany.[14] Frederick worked as a successful Klondike Gold Rush restaurateur and possibly as a brothel keeper.[15][16] In a 1976 New York Times biographical profile,[17] and again in his 1987 book, The Art of the Deal, Trump incorrectly stated that Frederick Trump was of Swedish origin,[18][19] an assertion that Fred Trump made for many years ostensibly because "he had a lot of Jewish tenants and it wasn't a good thing to be German", according to a nephew identified as a family historian by The New York Times.[20] Donald Trump later acknowledged his German ancestry and served as grand marshal of the 1999 German-American Steuben Parade in New York City.[11]

The family had a two-story Tudor Revival home on Wareham Place in Jamaica Estates,[21] where Trump lived while attending The Kew-Forest School. At Kew-Forest, Fred Trump served as a member of the Board of Trustees. Due to behavior problems, Trump left the school at age 13 and was enrolled in the New York Military Academy(NYMA).[22] In 1983, Fred told an interviewer that Donald "was a pretty rough fellow when he was small." Trump finished eighth grade and high school at NYMA.[23] During his senior year, Trump participated in marching drills and wore a uniform, attaining the rank of captain.[24] In 2015, he told a biographer that NYMA gave him "more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military."[25]

Trump attended Fordham University in the Bronx for two years. He entered the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, as Wharton then offered one of the few real estate studies departments in U.S. academia.[26] While there, he worked at his father's company, Elizabeth Trump & Son.[27] Trump graduated from Wharton in 1968 with a bachelor's degree in economics.[28][29]

Trump was eligible for the draft lottery during the Vietnam War.[30] He was not drafted due to four student deferments (2-S) while attending college, as well as a medical deferment (1-Y, later converted to 4-F) obtained in 1968 after his college graduation, prior to the lottery being initiated.[31] Trump was deemed fit for service after a military medical examination in 1966 and was briefly classified as 1-A by a local draft board shortly before his 1968 medical disqualification.[32] Trump attributed his medical deferment to "heel spurs" in both feet according to a 2015 biography,[25] but told reporters in 2015 that he could not immediately remember which foot (later that day he said both feet).[32] "I actually got lucky because I had a very high draft number", he told WNYW in 2011.[33] Selective Service records retrieved by The Smoking Gunwebsite from the National Archives confirm that Trump got a medical deferment and eventually received a high selective service lottery number in 1969.[33]
