Memo To Steven Mnuchin: Trump's Tax Plan Would Add $7 Trillion To The Debt Over 10 Years

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 14:55:00 -0500

From business tycoon to presidential frontrunner, here are some of the Donald's biggest milestones.

Though Donald Trump had joined the family business (here he is pictured with his father, Fred) when he graduated from Pennsylvania's Wharton Business School in 1968, he doesn't regain control of the real estate development company until 1971.

Donald Trump marries his first wife Ivana in 1977. The pair would have three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric, and separate in 1990. A divorce is finally settled in 1992.

In the inaugural year of the Forbes 400 (then millionaires), Trump and his father evenly split a $200 million fortune.

Throughout the years, Trump has alleged he's worth much more than what Forbes has estimated. Most recently, Trump claimed he was worth $10 billion, while Forbes calculated his net worth at $4.5 billion.

Upon completion in 1983, Trump Tower on 5th Avenue becomes Manhattan's tallest all-glass structure. It houses luxury condominiums, offices, stores and restaurants.

Trump purchases the 126-room Mar-a-Lago landmark in Palm Beach, FL in 1985 and opens it as a private club a decade later.


It is the location for his wedding to third wife, Melania Knauss, in 2005.

Donald Trump's first book "The Art of the Deal" is released in 1987. It reaches#1 on the New York Times Bestseller list and holds a position on the list for 51 weeks.

Trump's airline, Trump Shuttle, operates from1989 to 1992. It never turns a profit and is sold off to US Airways.

In 1990, Donald Trump opens the $1 billion Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort in Atlantic City, N.J. One year later, the venture would file for Chapter 11 reorganization after accumulating $3 billion in debt.


Meanwhile, Trump reportedly racked up nearly $900 million in personal liabilities. Hegives up half his personal stake in the casino and sells his yacht and airline.

Donald Trump acquires New York's Plaza Hotel in 1988 for a price of$390 million. By 1992, the hotel sits $550 million in debt. Trump keeps his title of CEO as he gradually sells off his ownership.

Donald Trump remarries in 1993 to Marla Maples, who he was rumored to be having an affair with while still married to Ivana Trump. The two have a daughter, Tiffany. They divorce in 1999.

In 1995, Trumptakes Trump Hotels & Casino ResortsInc. public on the New York Stock Exchange after raising $140 million. The stock's ticker? Trump's initials: DJT.


Nearly ten years later, the stock crashes and the company files Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Trump purchasesthe Miss Universe Organization (which includes Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen). Refusing to say how much he paid, Trump says, "It's a very, very great entertainment format. It gets very high ratings, it's doing very well and we'll make it even better.''


Trump would co-own the pageants with NBC until September 2015. He bought out NBC's entire share to become the sole owner, and soon after sold theMiss Universe Organization totalent agency WME-IMG.

On a budget topping $40 million, Trump Internation[...]
