Is Donald Trump a successful businessman?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Whatever you may think about his political activities, his personal life, or his TV shows, there is no way to deny that Donald Trump is a very successful businessman.  Anyone who can achieve a net worth in the range of $3 billion (without getting it through inheritance) is certainly successful.   Trump was not born poor, but neither was his family wealthy in the way that he is.  Trump got to where he is through hard work and through some sort of flair for business and for self-promotion.  One way or another, his wealth and fame indicate that he is a successful businessman.
