Between 1977 and 1991, Trump was married to Ivana Zelnichek (Czech: Zelníčková), who bore him two sons and a daughter: Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric. In 1993, he married Marla Maples - the couple had a daughter, Tiffany, but divorced shortly after. In 1998, he entered a relationship with Slovenian model Melania Knauss and the couple married in 2006. Knauss has given birth to a son, Barron.
2016 Presidential campaign
Donald Trump announced his candidacy for President on June 16, 2015 at Trump Tower, mentioning immigration, terrorism, jobs, and trade. He also famously promised to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border to stop illegal immigration, and have Mexico pay for it. His capaign slogan was "Make America Great Again". Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump routinely held massive rallies. Fights erupted at some of these rallies, and it was later revealed through James O'Keefe's Project Veritas investigation that many of these fights were started by paid provocateurs, of which the DNC and Hillary Clinton were aware.
Trump's poll numbers were high leading up to the primaries, though he lost Iowa to Ted Cruz. However he rebounded during the rest of the primary contests and eventually received 1,441 delegates, more than enough to secure the Republican nomination.
Throughout the nomination process, Trump faced intense resistance from Republican party leaders such as Paul Ryan. Trump eventually warned that his supporters could riot if he won a plurality of delegates but was not nominated, though this did not end up occurring.
General Election Campaign
The summer of 2016 saw Trump forming what would become his main team for the general election. On July 15, 2016, Trump announced Mike Pence as his running mate. He later also changed his campaign manager, splitting with Corey Lewandowski in favor of Paul Manafort. Manafort was later replaced by Kellyanne Conway and Breitbart news co-founder Stephen Bannon.
Trump continued to get massive media coverage throughout the summer and fall, and continued to hold large rallies. The first Presidential debate between Trump and Clinton occurred on September 26 at Hofstra University. The Vice-Presidential debate occurred on October 4, between Tim Kaine and Mike Pence. Many people were impressed by Pence's performance, saying that Kaine came off as too aggressive and interrupted too much, and some people joked or hypothesized that the Republicans could "flip the ticket". On October 7, two days before the next debate, Trump's infamous "pussy tape" was leaked, causing a scandal. However at the second debate, October 9, Trump hit back, saying that while he regretted his words, Clinton's actual actions concerning her husband's female victims were far worse. He also said that if he won the election, he would appoint a special prosecutor to look into Clinton's e-mail scandal. Clinton accused Mr. Trump of being dishonest, then said: “It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.” Trump famously replied: “Because you’d be in jail.”, prompting loud cheering from the audience. The final presidential debate happened on October 19 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
On election night, the New York Times reported that Donald Trump had won with at least 279 electoral votes, though Arizona and Michigan had yet to be counted. After the last votes were counted in Michigan, the final electoral vote tally was 306 for Trump to 232 for Clinton.
After it had been announced that Trump had won the election, liberals upset with the election results staged riots in Portland,  Oakland, Boulder, and many other cities across the U.S. There were some liberals calling for Trump's assassination, and there were several incidents of Trump supporters being assaulted by liberals.
However, world leaders including Vladimir Putin and Rodrigo Duterte expressed a willingness to repair relations with the U.S. Canadian PM Justin Trudeau said "If the Americans want to talk about NAFTA, I'm more than happy to talk about it,". On November 10, Trump released a detailed set of policy goals.
Soon after the election, multiple media outlets complained when Trump went to dinner one night without the press, with NBC accusing Trump of showing a "lack of transparency"
On January 19th, 2017, the National Press Club hosted a pro-Trump event called "Deploraball".
Inauguration and Early Presidency
Trump was sworn in on 20 January 2017, with Jackie Evancho singing the National Anthem.
Trump worked quickly to implement much of his agenda, In January alone, Trump issued executive orders concerning a border wall, a weekly list of crimes committed by illegal aliens, a 5-year lobbying ban on White House employees and other political appointees, suspension of immigration from several countries, and reducing business regulations.
The Trump campaign has proposed a set of key points designed to improve the economy and economic prosperity:
- Income tax reform, simplification, and reduction.
- Limitation of business taxes.
- Elimination of death taxes.
- Evaluation and prioritization of all federal regulatory requirements.
- Removal of regulations that favor investment in alternative over conventional energy.
- Renegotiate NAFTA
- Withdraw from the TPP
- Retaliate for trade violations
- Cancel the Paris Climate Agreement
- Repeal Obamacare
- Improve infrastructure
Pay for the Wall
Early in Donald Trump's campaign, he advocated building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border to increase national security and hinder illegal migrants. The wall became a point of controversy, with many critics claiming it could not be built. However, CNN pointed out that a basic wall could be built over the entire border in as little as 4 years, at an estimated 10.5 billion dollar cost of materials.
Trump also proposed a detailed plan for ensuring that the Mexican government bore the cost.
Key points published by the Trump campaign for reforming healthcare include:
- Repealing Obamacare.
- Removing restrictions on selling health insurance between states.
- Allowing individuals to deduct health insurance premiums on their income taxes and use Health Savings Accounts.
- Requiring price transparency from providers.
- Block-granting Medicaid to the states.
- Removing barriers to entry for new drugs.
U.S.-China Trade Reform
Donald Trump has stated that the United States is at disadvantage when it comes to trading with other nations, especially China. Therefore Trump's campaign position is to:
- Declare China a currency manipulator.
- Force China to uphold intellectual property laws and stop their practice of forcing U.S. companies to share proprietary technology with Chinese competitors as a condition of entry to China's market.
- End to China's export subsidies and lax labor and environmental standards.
- Lowering corporate tax rates.
Veterans Administration Reform
Specific proposals for Veterans Administration reform include:
- Increase funding for PTSD and other "invisible injuries"
- Increase funding for job placement services, education services, and business loans.
- Improve VA support for women.
Second Amendment Rights
While in the past Donald Trump had supported the 1994 Assault Weapon Ban, he has more recently stated he would support that Second Amendment against government intrusion by:
- Enforcing existing gun laws
- Fixing the mental health system
- Opposing gun and magazine bans
- Integrating the instant background check system with mental health and criminal records
- Creating a national concealed carry permit
- Allowing active military personnel to carry guns on base and in recruiting centers
Proposals for immigration include:
- Tripling the number of ICE officers.
- Implementing a nationwide e-verify program for checking eligibility to work in the United States.
- Return criminal aliens to their home country.
- Detain border-jumpers until they can be returned to their home country.
- Defund sanctuary cities
- Increase penalties for overstaying visas
- Have ICE officers accompany gang task force raids
- Ending birthright citizenship
- Increasing prevailing wages for H-1B Visa holders.
Trump is a supporter of Israel. On March 21, 2016, Trump gave a speech at a conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in which he stated that he believes Israel's right to exist is non-negotiable. However, Trump has also said that he would try to be "sort of a neutral guy" in dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict should he become president. He has also stated that "it wouldn't help" for him claim he is the most pro-Israel of the Republican candidates, breaking with conventional Republican rhetoric on the issue. However, on 25 September 2016, he had a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, where he mentioned that the Trump administration would recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
In early April 2017, Trump stated that he would stay out of Syria. After a gas attack in Idlib on 4 April 2017, however, he condemned Bashar al-Assad for causing the attack (even though it was found to be linked to the White Helmets), causing him to lose some support.
On 6 April 2017, Trump launched an airstrike over Syria, dropping over 60 bombs. This caused him to lose many of his fans.
Reception in the manosphere has been positive, especially for his alpha behavior and commanding presence and seemingly effortless trolling of mainstream media and establishment politicians. Roosh V predicted severe consequences including the repression of the manosphere if Trump failed to win the election against Hillary Clinton.
Before Trump's run for president, he was a big role model to many rappers, who referred to him in many of their songs.
People say, “how can you say such a thing?” but there’s a truth in it, in a modified form. Psychologists will tell you that some women want to be treated with respect, others differently. I tell friends who treat their wives magnificently, get treated like crap in return, “Be rougher and you’ll see a different relationship.’ Unfortunately, with people in general, you get more with vinegar than honey.
We had a great relationship for several years ... I was 100 percent faithful, loved Ivana ... then I asked her to take over Trump Castle. Putting your wife to work is a very dangerous thing — the single biggest reason my marriage stopped being good, my fault more than hers. I thought, “Ivana’s a great homemaker, mother but I’ll give her something really exciting to do” — like raising kids wasn’t the most important job in the world...
I don’t want to sound like a chauvinist, but when I come home at night and dinner’s not ready I go through the roof. But I got handed casino numbers. After 12 hours dealing with my companies, I didn’t want to talk business. I can instantaneously shut it off, my survival mechanism. But she’d be yelling into the phone with the casino; I didn’t want my wife shouting like that. Ivana had a great softness that disappeared. She became an executive not a wife.
Jack Donovan has argued that while Trump may likely oversee a temporary resurgence of pride and economic recovery Trump's followers are unrealistic about prospects to "make America great again," and that Trump cannot fix a county whose citizens do not share a common culture and destiny:
Trump brand hot dogs would be barbecued and blondes in star-spangled bikinis would model the latest very nearly automatic weapons while washing red, white and blue sports cars made right here in U.S. of A. And in four to eight years, all of those systemic problems would still be there. No real change would have occurred. Big business would get bigger. Consumers would be even more consumer-oriented. The demographic changes would still be underway, and the American people still wouldn't have much more in common than flags and hot dogs.
