Quick Bio

I am the very definition of the American success story, continually setting the standards of excellence while expanding my interests in real estate, sports and entertainment. I am a graduate of the Wharton School of Finance. An accomplished author, I have authored over fifteen bestsellers, and my first book, The Art of the Deal, is considered a business classic and one of the most successful business books of all time. During the 2014 political cycle, I was a top contributor and fundraiser for Republican efforts. I also campaigned across the country, with each candidate winning handily.

My Positions

STRONGLY SUPPORT
S+

Energy Technology & Coal

“Obama has decimated the coal industry . . . and we are going to bring the coal industry back.”

STRONGLY SUPPORT
S+

Guns & Ammunition

“Our Founding Fathers knew, and our Supreme Court has upheld, that the Second Amendment’s purpose is to guarantee our right to defend ourselves and our families . . . We are the only country in the world that has a Second Amendment. Protecting that freedom is imperative.”

SUPPORT
S

Immigration & Deportation

“They have to come in through a legal process and they’re going to come in . . . We talk about the wall, we’re going to build the wall, but we’re going to have a big beautiful door. We want people to come in, we want people to come in legally.”

SUPPORT
S

Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness

“We will work with Congress to make sure we have a series of reforms ready for implementation that follow free market principles and that will restore economic freedom and certainty to everyone in this country. ”

OPPOSE
O

Tax & Spend

“Too few Americans are working, too many jobs have been shipped overseas, and too many middle class families cannot make ends meet. In order to achieve the American dream, let people keep more money in their pockets and increase after-tax wages. Simplify the tax code to reduce the headaches Americans face in preparing their taxes and let everyone keep more of their money.”

NEUTRAL
N

Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll

“I think it’s a state by state issue . . . As far as medical marijuana, I would say that’s something we should really consider strongly because people are sick and it does have a huge impact. A lot of people who have said it’s had a huge impact on the pain and suffering they have to go through.”

OPPOSE
O

Abortion

“If Congress were to pass legislation making abortion illegal and the federal courts upheld this legislation, or any state were permitted to ban abortion . . . the doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman. The woman is a victim in this case as is the life in her womb . . . Like Ronald Reagan I am pro-life with exceptions.”

NEUTRAL
N

Civil Liberties and Civil Rights

“Regarding same-sex marriage: I disagree with the Supreme Court from the standpoint that ... it should be a states' right issue. I would have much preferred that they ruled at a state level and allow the states to make those rulings themselves. ... That is correct, if Caitlyn Jenner walked into Trump Tower I would be fine with her using any bathroom she chooses.”

STRONGLY SUPPORT
S+

U.S. Withdraw from the Paris Accord

“The Paris Climate Accord is simply the latest example of Washington entering into an agreement that disadvantages the United States, to the exclusive benefit of other countries, leaving American workers, who I love, and taxpayers to absorb the cost in terms of lost jobs, lowered wages, shuttered factories and vastly diminished economic production. But we will start trying to negotiate a fair deal.”
