His name is on skyscrapers, casinos, country clubs, neckties, jewelry, cologne, a shelf-full of books, a self-proclaimed “university,” a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame — and official portraits throughout the Oval Office.
He has five children by three different wives; he hosted a long-running television show and sponsored golf tournaments, beauty pageants and championship fights. He ran a magazine and an airline. He has sent out more tweets than all the high school juniors in the United States put together. And he’s ordered airstrikes on a Syrian airbase.
Yes, President Trump has lived a very full life up till now, and as he turns 71 on Tuesday, he’s leading an administration through one of the most tumultuous periods in recent presidential history.
