As the 45th president, Donald John Trump was born in Queens, New York, on June 14, 1946. In 1971, he took over his father’s real estate company, renaming it the Trump Organization. The business soon became involved in a variety of projects, including hotels, resorts, residential and commercial buildings, casinos, and golf courses. His first of many books was The Art of the Deal, published in 1987. In 2004, he launched the reality television show The Apprentice.

During the 2016 primary, Trump defeated more than a dozen rivals to win the Republican nomination. While he lost the popular vote, Trump defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the general election by winning a majority of Electoral College votes. His campaign slogan was “Make America Great Again.”

On January 13, 2021, Trump’s actions resulted in the House of Representatives approving another article of impeachment: the incitement of insurrection. He is the only president in American history to be impeached twice by Congress.

Despite being embroiled in several legal wrangles that could ultimately land him in jail, Donald Trump has a comfortable lead in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

While Trump is a serious contender for the 2024 election, he faces a federal indictment on charges stemming from his alleged removal of classified documents from the White House and taking them to his Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to the charges and claimed they were without merit and said it was an effort of the Biden administration to interfere with his 2024 candidacy.

The former president has claimed his possession of the classified documents is protected by statutes under the Presidential Records Act 1978.

He also claimed the attorneys for former President Bill Clinton invoked a 2012 lawsuit pursuing records of sensitive phone calls Clinton made that were found in his sock drawer.

But legal experts have disputed his claim and said it bore no resemblance to the current charges against Trump.

Biden and Trump are also very close in polling, being separated by 1 to 3 percentage points with the exception of a Jun 23-26 Premise poll that had Trump ahead by 7 and a June 24-27 YouGov survey that had the former president ahead by 4 percentage points.
