Additionally, he also surfaced as an adviser on his dad's reality TV program, The Apprentice. In recent years, he has overseen the development of buildings in Mumbai, India, and Vancouver, Canada, and handled leasing arrangements for Trump Tower and 40 Wall Street in Manhattan.
He delivered a well-received speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention, presenting Trump Sr. as an every man with a connection to regular, hard-working Americans. He also displayed his dad's penchant for stoking controversy via social media, particularly with a tweet that compared Syrian refugees to a bowl of Skittles.

Is the oldest son of U.S. President Donald Trump and a trustee of the Trump Organization. In September 1998, as part of New York City’s Fashion Week festivities, 28-year-old model Melania Klaus attended a party at the Kit Kat Club in Times Square.
Trump had arrived with cosmetics heiress Celina Mideast, but it didn't matter; when his date went to the bathroom, he quickly copied up to the tall Slovenian beauty. Melania finally called after keeping the Donald waiting for a week, and with a first date at the Greenwich Village nightclub Roomba, the flame was lit.
As the romance blossomed, Melania developed an understanding of what it meant to be dating a public figure with a seemingly insatiable craving for the spotlight. But the lovebirds patched things up soon enough, and in 2001, their future together looking rosy, Melania obtained her Green Card and moved into her boyfriend's penthouse in Trump Tower.
Despite her lukewarm support of her husband's political ambitions, Melania joined the rest of the Trump clan in June 2015 for the announcement that he was seeking the Republican nomination for president. But there was no avoiding the limelight altogether: Speaking on her husband's behalf at the 2016 Republican National Convention, she came under fire for passages that matched those from an earlier speech by Michelle Obama.
There were the inauguration snafus: He's leaving her behind at the car as he marched over to greet Barack and Michelle Obama, she's smiling and then frowning after he turned away during the prayer ceremony. Still, those hoping for some sort of dramatic split have been disappointed: The first couple has seemingly recovered from the allegations, with Melania appearing on ABC News in October 2018 to dismiss rumors of their unhappiness.

Starting with the renovation of the Commodore Hotel into the Grand Hyatt, he continued on with Trump Tower and several other residential projects. Much of the news about him in the early 1990s involved his much publicized financial problems, creditor-led bailout, extramarital affair with Marla Maples and the resulting divorce from his first wife Ivana Trump.
That same year, he began construction on Trump Place, a multi-building development along the Hudson River. Trump currently owns over 18 million square feet of prime Manhattan real estate.
He remains a major figure in the field of casino / hotels in the United States and a current celebrity for his prominent role on American television reality show The Apprentice. When he was thirteen, his parents sent him to the New York Military Academy hoping to direct his energy and assertiveness positively.
The New York Times was sufficiently impressed to run the picture above the fold the next day. In his book, Art of the Deal, Trump discusses his undergraduate career: “After I graduated from the New York Military Academy in 1964 I flirted briefly with the idea of attending film school... But in the end I decided real estate was a much better business.

Trump was given the job which he completed in six months and with $750,000 of the $3 million budgeted for the project left over (he used the leftover money to renovate the adjacent statehouse and restaurant). Banks and bondholders had lost hundreds of millions of dollars, but opted to restructure his debt to avoid risking losing lots more money in a huge court fight.
Wall Street drove its stock above $35 in 1996, but by 1998 it had fallen into single digits as the company remained profitless and struggled to pay just the interest on its nearly $2 billion in debt.
