Did You Know?

After announcing the biopic by the ABC Donald Trump officially said that he would sue the movie makers. After watching the movie with his wife Melania he said that he was flattered by the film and it was a great compliment, even if a few facts were wrong, like Peter Wennik, who was a fictitious character. He praised Justin Louis' performance saying that "he did a very excellent job. I just really wish he were my height". Melania also enjoyed the movie but said that the movie brought nothing new since Trumps life "is an open book and there were no surprises".See more »

The only way you will see the TRUE Trump, 24 May 2005
Author: 50inch from United States

This was the best way to see Donald Trump in true form! He is too full of himself to give an accurate biography, so this unauthorized bio was the way to go. And considering how Trump wants to get paid for everything, I am betting that he is fuming about this! This film gives a portrayal of the family, including his father and brother, not to mention the wives(Ivana and Marla). People usually associate the Donald with his hair and his hit TV show "The Apprentice", but the Donald has been around for a long time! He had money, went bankrupt, then had money again and is now a multi-billionaire. Love him or hate him, he knows how to do what he does, despite the fact that there were some throats stepped on and lives ruined to get where he is but that is the case with every Mogul.
