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.

A member of Parliament allegedly sent Rumble a letter asking them “to join YouTube in suspending Mr Brand’s ability to earn money on the platform.” Founder Chris Pavlovski wrote on X (Twitter) that he was refusing: Rumble is really popular with right-wing content creators — it’s like the Truth Social of YouTube.Read more on perezhilton.com
