Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is the 45th and current president of the United States. Before entering politics, he was a businessman and television personality. Trump was born and raised in the New York City borough of Queens, and received a bachelor's degree in economics from the Wharton School. He took charge of his family's real-estate business in 1971, renamed it The Trump Organization, and expanded its operations from Queens and Brooklyn into Manhattan.
The company built or renovated skyscrapers, hotels, casinos, and golf courses. Trump later started various side ventures, mostly by licensing his name. He owned the Miss Universe and Miss USA beauty pageants from 1996 to 2015, and produced and hosted The Apprentice, a reality television show, from 2003 to 2015. Forbes estimates his net worth to be $3.1 billion.
Donald Trump asked the Supreme Court for another pause in his January 6 election conspiracy case Monday, as his attorneys work on an appeal of a decision that soundly rejected his claims of presidential immunity.
Last week, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Trump is not shielded from prosecution on federal charges that he conspired to remain in power after the 2020 presidential election.
The three-judge panel gave him until today to ask for a stay of the ruling. Without a stay, the case will restart and proceed to trial.
Trump’s attorneys wrote in their brief to the high court today that “the D.C. Circuit’s judgment seemingly authorizes the district court to conduct a criminal trial of President Trump based on his official acts before this Court concludes its review of this momentous question — thus subjecting the Presidency to the most intrusive possible ‘examin[ation] by the courts,’ id., and inflicting one of the gravest wounds to the separation of powers in our Nation’s history.” The trial in the case was originally scheduled for March 4, but that was taken off the calendar as Trump pursued his claim that he was immune from prosecution because the alleged acts took place while he was president.Read more on deadline.com
