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.
Kristen Welker’s debut as moderator of Meet the Press, featuring an interview with former President Donald Trump, drew 2.98 million viewers, topping other broadcast network Sunday talk shows.
But CBS’s Face the Nation edged out Meet the Press in the 25-54 demo, according to Nielsen numbers. Face the Nation averaged 2.58 million total viewers, while This Week posted 2.44 million.
In the 25-54 demo, Face the Nation averaged 494,000, compared to 491,000 for Meet the Press and 447,000 for This Week. A caveat: Face the Nation’s numbers come from its first half hour, as not all affiliates carry the second portion of the program.
According to CBS, Face the Nation still ranks atop total viewers for the season and in the demo. Welker’s interview with Trump made news, but he spent much of the sit down deflecting and trafficking in unfounded claims and mistruths.Read more on deadline.com
