Think you know everything there is to know about Donald Trump? Think again! These 25 facts about the businessman-turned-presidential-candidate will surprise you.
Donald Trump’s “politics” are polarizing and among the most outlandish of all presidential candidates in American history. Despite his bombastic rhetoric that keeps news outlets and headlines in disbelief and always guessing as to what he’ll say next, there are still things that Trump has done and said that continue to shock people. These 25 facts about Donald Trump are among those that will leave you surprised.
1. Trump Doesn’t Drink, But Released His Own Vodka Brand
It’s no secret that Trump will do whatever it takes to make money and that includes making products he isn’t even interested in. He released Trump Vodka in 2006 despite personally refraining from alcohol because his brother died of alcoholism. Not surprisingly, Trump Vodka failed in 2011, proving that people shouldn’t be involved in things they don’t partake in.
2. Trump Is Oversensitive About the Size of His Fingers
Several decades ago, an editor at Vanity Fair dubbed Trump a “short-fingered vulgarian.” Trump was so bothered by the statement that he reportedly sends photos of his hands to the editor at the magazine with his fingers circled in gold sharpie. Not only does he send these photos periodically, but he sent tracings of his hands to prove that his fingers were proportionate.
3. He Had His Own Board Game
Trump: The Board Game was released by Milton Bradley in 1989 after Trump began his rise to success. He had become an icon in the media after using a loan from his father to create a multi-million-dollar real estate empire. The game allowed players to try and recreate Trump’s rise to fortune, but it was also possible to lose everything, much like Trump himself the year after the game was released. The game was a huge flop.
