Donald Trump Childhood

Donald John Trump, born on Flag Day, June 14, 1946 in Queens, New York, is the fourth of five child of Frederick Chris Trump and Mary Macleod Trump.

He grew up in a very traditional, close-knit household, where his father Fred was the sole breadwinner and his mother Mary Anne was the archetypical housewife. However, his mother, probably influenced by her poor upbringing, also spent time at the local hospital doing charity work.

Despite living in a 23-room, nine-bathroom Georgian Revival style mansion situated inside an enclave of elm and chestnut trees in Midland Parkway in Jamaica Estates, Queens, Mr. Trump claims his family never considered themselves as rich, and the children were taught the value of the dollar from a very young age. His father, despite owning a successful business, was still working from a small office in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.

Even as a kid, Mr. Trump was a firebrand, and became the leader of the neighborhood kids. His assertiveness extended to school, where once as an 8-year-old, he punched his music teacher in the face!

“Even in elementary school, I was a very assertive, aggressive kid. In the second grade I actually gave a teacher a black eye—I punched my music teacher because I didn’t think he knew anything about music and I almost got expelled. I’m not proud of that, but it’s clear evidence that even early on I had a tendency to stand up and make my opinions known in a very forceful way. The difference now is that I like to use my brain instead of my fists.”

“I was always something of a leader in my neighborhood. Much the way it is today, people either liked me a lot, or they didn’t like me at all. In my own crowd I was very well liked, and I tended to be the kid that others followed. As an adolescent I was mostly interested in creating mischief, because for some reason I liked to stir things up, and I liked to test people. I’d throw water balloons, shoot spitballs, and make a ruckus in the schoolyard and at birthday parties. It wasn’t malicious so much as it was aggressive.”
Trump: The Art of the Deal

At the age of 13, his parents felt he needed proper guidance to channel his natural aggressiveness, and sent his to the New York Military Academy, which in retrospect, was the perfect place for the young teenager.
