Donald Trump Depended on Federal Largesse to Build His Empire

Written by 

Donald Trump�s self-obsession knows no bounds. Aside from his empire of eponymous buildings, drinks, ties, and mattresses, �The Donald� informed the small business owners gathered at a recent chamber of commerce expo in Nashua, New Hampshire, that he tried to tell the world that Osama bin Laden was hiding out in Pakistan but that no one would listen.

Nothing in the previous paragraph is shocking to those familiar with Trumps unparalleled hubris. The fact that the reputed real estate mogul is in New Hampshire, however, is news simply for the fact that this is his second trip to the Granite State and evinces his apparently genuine intent to run for President in 2012.

The political spotlight was turned on Donald Trump after he made several television appearances questioning the White Houses current occupants eligibility for office and calling on President Barack Obama to release his long-form birth certificate.
