Did you know that an airline was once part of Donald Trump’s empire? That is right, Trump Air was launched in 1989, but only had less than three years of flights. According to the Bostonglobe.com, “while Trump broke into the shuttle business with typical bravado and brand mastery, he was brought low by a series of missteps and a softening economy. His lack of expertise in East Coast skies took a toll and he was forced to give up the airline after less than three years”. Trump tends to look at the things he has done, whether successful, or not, by focusing on a positive aspect. The article continues by quoting an interview in which Trump said, “it was a great experience, I enjoyed it. It was incredibly well financed. That was the days where banks put up more than 100 percent of the financing”. Trump truly has had his hands in a little of everything, and has lead a truly fascinating life.
“I do solemnly swear (of affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
