Footnote 2 Color U.S. Trumped: Donald Trump Pulls Himself Up With His Father’s Boostraps

This was a basic Politico fact-check article. We wanted to get to the bottom of Donald Trump’s on-the-record statement that his father had given him a “small loan” to get started with his casino business. There is documentation that Trump’s father loaned him $14 million dollars in the 1980’s. While there is nothing inherently wrong with borrowing money to start a business, Donald Trump is not a self-made man. Nepotism played a strong role in Trump’s financial success.
