Donald Trump is a prominent American businessman, television personality, and politician who served as the 45th President of the United States from 2017 to 2021. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump is the son of a real estate developer and began his career in the family business before branching out into other ventures, including entertainment and politics.
Trump's presidency was marked by controversy and division, with his policies and rhetoric often drawing criticism from both sides of the political aisle. He was impeached twice by the House of Representatives, first in 2019 over allegations of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress related to his dealings with Ukraine, and again in 2021 over his role in inciting the January 6th insurrection at the US Capitol.
Since leaving office, Trump has remained a prominent figure in the news, with ongoing investigations into his business dealings and potential legal troubles related to his actions as president. He has also continued to be a vocal presence in the Republican Party, endorsing candidates and pushing for his agenda to be implemented at the state and national level.
