Conservative journalist Bill O'Reilly wrote what is essentially a Donald Trump biography. So many things point to Trump someday becoming president. He was born on Flag Day, June 14, 1946, and grew up in the New York city borough of Queens. Donald's parents sent him to New York Military Academy in 1959, where he spent 5 years and graduated in 1964. Military school shaped his world view. Donald learned respect for the military and became a cadet captain. He gets to the point. He likes action. He likes competition and played baseball.
Donald's father was in real estate, and young Donald was fascinated by it. He studied economics at Fordham University, transferring to the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business in his junior year. After college, Donald went to work for his father. Trump told Bill O'Reilly that he thought the Vietnam War was ridiculous. Young men were being sent to fight for a country they never heard of. It was the same in the Middle East. Trump believes Iraq was a mistake.
Donald Trump is ambitious and knew he wanted to do business in Manhattan. At age 33, he began construction on Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue. He acquired Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. The Trump brand generated wealth, and he put together an empire. Donald had tremendous self-confidence. He saw himself as a winner. He believed losses could be turned into victories. He became a TV star. His show, The Apprentice, ran from 2004 to 2015. Everyone knew who Donald Trump was, and the fame set him up for the presidency.
O'Reilly calls Trump a stream-of-consciousness kind of guy. He says what he thinks. He moves on. He is less concerned about the past than he is with winning in the future.
According to the author, Trump is a loner. He does not trust people and sees them as being out for themselves. I wondered if O'Reilly was unconsciously pasting his own personality on the president.
O'Reilly devotes too much time to the debates leading to the 2016 election. I do not watch debates but always get wind of how they went. O'Reilly constantly reminds us that he is an objective reporter interested in the truth. I am pro-Donald Trump and believe he saved our country. No one else could have beaten Hillary Clinton.
The United States of Trump takes us to the moment Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the United States.
It is all about 2020 now. I believe President Trump will be re-elected despite a national media that hates him for no reason.
