Donald Trump Collected Empty Cans

Donald Trump Collected Empty Cans, Commercial real estate tycoon Donald Trump got his hands dirty (literally) for his first working capital. According Forbes, Trump accompanied his father to job sites and collected empty cans and bottles with his brother for the redemption value.

It didn’t add up to much (Trump recalls it equaling a “below-average allowance”) but it no doubt taught him the value of a dollar. Humorously, Trump also notes that he later accompanied dad on rent collection jobs to scoop up bottles and cans that way, but quickly learned to, “…stand out of the doorway to avoid the possibility of being shot”.

Donald John Trump, Sr. (born June 14, 1946) is an American business magnate, television personality and author. He is the chairman and president of The Trump Organization and the founder of Trump Entertainment Resorts. Trump’s extravagant lifestyle, outspoken manner and role on the NBC reality show The Apprentice have made him a well-known celebrity who was No. 17 on the 2011 Forbes Celebrity 100 list.

Trump is the son of Fred Trump, a New York City real-estate developer. He worked for his father’s firm, Elizabeth Trump & Son, while attending the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and in 1968 officially joined the company. He was given control of the company in 1971 and renamed it The Trump Organization.

In 2010, Trump expressed an interest in becoming a candidate for President of the United States in the 2012 election. In May 2011, he announced he would not be a candidate, but a few weeks later he said he had not completely ruled out the possibility. In December 2011, Trump was suggested as a possible Vice Presidential selection by Michele Bachmann. Bachmann has since suspended her presidential campaign.
