Controversies• In 2016, while campaigning for the Presidential Elections, Trump said that he will build a wall at the United States-Mexico border to stop infiltrators. He also said that he will be putting a temporary ban on the entry of foreign Muslims in the United States. 

• In February 2016, Trump termed Pope Francis being a pawn of the Mexican Government. Trump’s comments came after the Pope’s statement- “Any man thinking of building a wall between the US and Mexico is disgraceful and not a Christian.” 

• In May 2017, a “Special Counsel Investigation” was set up to investigate the “Russian interference” and the suspicious links between the Russian officials and Trump’s associates ahead of the “2016 US Presidential Elections.” 

• In September 2019, a whistleblower alleged that Trump had requested Ukraine’s President to launch investigations against Trump’s 2020 Presidential election opponent, Joe Biden. He also requested Ukraine and other foreign countries to provide damaging narratives against Biden. 

• On 19 December 2019, he was impeached by the House of Representatives for “Abuse of Power” and “Obstruction of Congress.” 

• On January 3, 2020, the White House tweeted that on the orders of Donald Trump, the top Iranian leader, General Qasem Soleimani was killed in a drone strike for planning attacks on American diplomats. Following the news of the strike, many members of Congress criticized the move; as no congressional approval was taken before the drone strike. 

• On 8 August 2022, the FBI executed a search warrant at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida; this was confirmed by Trump who said, “My beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents.” Reportedly, he was at Trump Tower in New York when the search warrant was executed in Florida. According to some FBI officials, the search operation was part of an investigation into the handling of presidential documents, including classified documents, that may have been brought at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.  On June 8, 2023, he was indicted on seven counts in the special counsel’s classified documents probe, marking the first time a former president had faced federal charges. He was indicted on a charge under the Espionage Act, as well as charges of obstruction of justice, destruction or falsification of records, conspiracy and false statements. Following his indictement, Trump wrote on Truth Social that he had been informed by the Justice Department he was indicted and that he was “summoned to appear at the Federal Courthouse in Miami on Tuesday, at 3 PM.” He wrote,

“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax.”

In a four-minute video released by Trump on the evening of June 8, 2023, he repeated many of his past claims, including that the Justice Department was being weaponized and that the investigations into him were “election interference.” In the video, Trump said,

“I am an innocent man. I did nothing wrong.” 

• On 30 March 2023, the Manhattan grand jury indicted Donald Trump on more than 30 counts of business fraud. This was the first time a current or former president had faced criminal charges in US history. In 2016, Mr. Trump’s celebrity past and political ambitions collided in a well-chronicled case. During the investigation, prosecutors reviewed money paid to porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, whom he feared would go public with allegations of extramarital affairs.  In a courtroom in New York City on 4 April 2023, Trump heard the charges against him; he denied all wrongdoing, and his lawyers said they will fight to drop the charges. The former president lashed out against the Manhattan DA and the indictment in his first speech since pleading not guilty to 34 felony counts. 

• On 25 April 2023, the civil battery and defamation trial for columnist E. Jean Carroll against Donald Trump began. According to Carroll, Trump forcibly raped and groped her in a Manhattan luxury department store dressing room in the mid-1990s. The lawsuit details Carroll’s account of the alleged rape after meeting Trump at Bergdorf Goodman in the spring or fall of 1995. According to the former Elle columnist, Trump directed her to the lingerie section, where he suggested she try on a bodysuit, from what had first been lighthearted shopping. Later, she jokingly suggested Trump he should try on the lingerie, after Trump guided her toward a dressing room. In the dressing room, according to the lawsuit, Trump “lunged at Carroll, pushing her against the wall, bumping her head quite badly, and putting his mouth on her lips.” While Carroll was resisting Trump’s advances, he pushed her against the wall again, “jammed his hand under her coatdress and pulled down her tights.” The suit alleges, “Trump opened his overcoat and unzipped his pants. Trump then pushed his fingers around Carroll’s genitals and forced his penis inside of her.” According to the lawsuit, Carroll somehow managed to push him off with her knee, and she eventually ran out of the dressing room to exit the store. However, Trump has categorically denied that the interaction and assault ever happened. The first time Carroll sued Trump was in 2019 when he made statements denying the allegations at the time. On 9 May 2023, a Manhattan federal jury found that Donald Trump sexually abused E. Jean Carrol and awarded her $5 million for battery and defamation; however, the jury did not find that Carroll proved he raped her. Following the verdict, Carroll called it a victory for her and other victims of abuse. 

• On August 1, 2023, he was indicted for his attempts to overturn the 2020 election, and he was ordered to appear before the federal court in Washington on August 3, 2023. According to indictment charges, Trump conspired to defraud the United States by preventing Congress from certifying Democrat Joe Biden’s victory and to deprive voters of their right to a fair election.  Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis issued an indictment that encompassed 18 defendants besides Trump, with a total of 41 charges. Additionally, there were 30 unindicted co-conspirators mentioned. The Georgia charging document highlighted several incidents including Trump’s phone call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, where he requested Raffensperger to “find” the votes required for him to secure the state. The document also mentioned the deceptive elector strategy and a letter Trump sent to Raffensperger in September 2021, urging him to decertify the state’s 2020 election results. In 2023, Trump has been indicted on a total of 91 charges spread across four separate indictments. 

• On 24 August 2023, Trump surrendered at Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, Georgia, facing felony charges related to attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Within minutes of his arrival at the jail, he was booked, fingerprinted, and had a mug shot taken; this was the first time any former US President had his mug shot taken. According to reports, he was released under the terms of a $200,000 bond agreement, and he spent about 20 minutes at the jail. On 25 August 2023, Donald Trump addressed his arrest by posting his mug shot on platform X.

Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American politician, media personality, and businessman who served as the 45th president of the United States from 2017 to 2021.

Trump graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor’s degree in economics in 1968. He became president of his father’s real-estate business in 1971 and renamed it the Trump Organization. He expanded its operations to building and renovating skyscrapers, hotels, casinos, and golf courses and later started side ventures, mostly by licensing his name. From 2004 to 2015, he co-produced and hosted the reality television series The Apprentice. He and his businesses have been plaintiff or defendant in more than 4,000 state and federal legal actions, including six business bankruptcies.

Trump won the 2016 presidential election as the Republican nominee against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton while losing the popular vote. During the campaign, his political positions were described as populist, protectionist, isolationist, and nationalist. His election and policies sparked numerous protests. He was the first U.S. president with no prior military or government service. The 2017–2019 special counsel investigation established that Russia interfered in the 2016 election to favor his campaign. Trump promoted conspiracy theories and made many false and misleading statements during his campaigns and presidency, to a degree unprecedented in American politics. Many of his comments and actions have been characterized as racially charged or racist and many as misogynistic.

As president, Trump ordered a travel ban on citizens from several Muslim-majority countries, diverted military funding toward building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, and implemented a policy of family separations for apprehended migrants. He weakened environmental protections, rolling back more than 100 environmental policies and regulations. He signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, which cut taxes for individuals and businesses and rescinded the individual health insurance mandate penalty of the Affordable Care Act. He appointed Neil GorsuchBrett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court. He initiated a trade war with China and withdrew the U.S. from the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement, the Paris Agreement on climate change, and the Iran nuclear deal. He met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un three times but made no progress on denuclearization. He reacted slowly to the COVID-19 pandemic, ignored or contradicted many recommendations from health officials, used political pressure to interfere with testing efforts, and spread misinformation about unproven treatments.

Trump lost the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden. He refused to concede defeat, falsely claiming widespread electoral fraud, and attempted to overturn the results by pressuring government officials, mounting scores of unsuccessful legal challenges, and obstructing the presidential transition. On January 6, 2021, he urged his supporters to march to the U.S. Capitol, which many of them then attacked, resulting in multiple deaths and interrupting the electoral vote count.

Trump is the only American president to have been impeached twice. After he tried to pressure Ukraine in 2019 to investigate Biden, he was impeached in December by the House of Representatives for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress; he was acquitted by the Senate in February 2020. The House impeached him a second time in January 2021, for incitement of insurrection, and the Senate acquitted him the next month. Scholars and historians rank Trump as one of the worst presidents in American history.[1][2]

Since leaving office, Trump has remained heavily involved in the Republican Party. In November 2022, he announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination in the 2024 presidential election. In March 2023, a Manhattan grand jury indicted him on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records. In June, a Miami federal grand jury indicted him on 37 felonies related to his handling of classified documents (with three charges added in July). In August, a Washington, D.C., federal grand jury indicted him on four felony counts of conspiracy and obstruction related to efforts to overturn the 2020 election. Later in August, a Fulton County, Georgia, grand jury indicted him for racketeering and other felonies committed in an effort to overturn the state’s 2020 election results. Trump pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Donald John Trump was born on June 14, 1946, at Jamaica Hospital in Queens, New York City, the fourth child of Fred Trump, a Bronx-born real-estate developer whose parents were German immigrants, and Mary Anne MacLeod Trump, an immigrant from Scotland. Trump grew up with older siblings Maryanne, Fred Jr., and Elizabeth and younger brother Robert in the Jamaica Estates neighborhood of Queens, and attended the private Kew-Forest School from kindergarten through seventh grade. At age 13, he was enrolled at the New York Military Academy, a private boarding school, and, in 1964, he enrolled at Fordham University. Two years later, he transferred to the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, graduating in May 1968 with a Bachelor of Science in economics. In 2015, Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen threatened Trump’s colleges, high school, and the College Board with legal action if they released Trump’s academic records.

While in college, Trump obtained four student draft deferments during the Vietnam War era. In 1966, he was deemed fit for military service based upon a medical examination, and in July 1968, a local draft board classified him as eligible to serve. In October 1968, he was classified 1-Y, a conditional medical deferment, and in 1972, he was reclassified 4-F due to bone spurs, permanently disqualifying him from service.
