Donald Trump's Life of Struggle: ‘My Father Gave Me a Small Loan of $1 Million’
On Monday morning, Donald Trump appeared at a New Hampshire Town Hall moderated by NBC's Matt Lauer. When an attendee asked the real estate mogul if he'd ever been told "no," Trump replied by detailing a life of hardship involving a mere million-dollar loan from his dad, a problem that must be all too familiar to struggling Americans.
"My whole life really has been a ‘no.’ And I fought through it," Trump said.
"It has not been easy for me," he said. "I started off in Brooklyn. My father gave me a small loan of a million dollars. I came into Manhattan, and I had to pay him back. And I had to pay him back with interest. But I came into Manhattan. I started buying up properties, and I did great."
