Donald Trump's Business Challenges

No one is going to play violins or weep over Donald trump. He is strong headed , often arrogant, and conveys the perception that he can handle anything. Yet, he is a great marketer and his life is consumed with challanges that most could ever imagine. I began to appreciate this, recently when I reviewed some (of the dozens) of recent headlines about him at Google:

When you feel sorry for how often Donald Trump is sued, remember, he can dish it out.

I think you get the idea. Sure, he has many people who manage these many battles for him. Furthermore, he is well compensated for all of these efforts. But I simply can't say that Trump's life is simple.
Above is a video by the people who spread the rumor about Trump's $10,000 tip (which proved to not be true. This is all part of Donald's interesting life.
