He is a self absorbed , materialistic egomaniac. He is supposedly the richest man on earth but he is ever happy, he is only temporarily satisfied, like many greedy Ceo's.
However, there are some brights spots in this TV movie worth mentioning. The background on Trump's dad and his brother Fred Trump (Chris Potter) was interesting. I know nothing about them both since Trump never from the interviews I've seen never talks about them.
Apparently his dad had a small business that he wanted Donald to be involved in, but Donald was never interested. Donald just say his dad as a regular joe of sorts but he felt could be bigger than him and live out a different dream. This sets up some conflict between the two. The father is very old fashioned, while Donald the explorer is thinking big he has a vision for building an empire and become a great entrepreneur.
Justin Louis who plays Trump is actually very good. He has all of Trump's manner of speaking down to a nail (though it's not that hard to play a guy so arrogant), as well his body movement, his hair and his whole demeanor.
Eventually Trump resurrects some old hotel and turns it into a money making business with some positive impact on the community. Trump as we all know then goes on to build the Trump Plaza and the Trumps Towers, his first big investment.
The movie then introduces Ivana (Katheryn Winnick) who becomes Trump's wive. What Trump saw in her I don't know. In the movie, she's portrayed as a snob and even admits she's only into him because of what he has.
Ivana eventually gets jealous of Trump's association with the ladies including one young sultress named yes, Marla Maples (Jennifer Baxter). However in real life, Marla was very pretty more than Ivana. For some reason I guess because of the actresses they used, Ivana came of as slight better looking.
Anyhow , the real meat of the movie, a crucial point the movie examines that always gets the real Trump's blood boiling is the dispute of his assets. How much is Trump actually worth? Is he a millionaire, a billionaire, a bankrupt fool who gets involved in shady deals? Or all the above.
There is a point , done beautifully, where Trump realizes that one of his investments has failed, and then he's sitting there at his desk like a beaten loser (sounds like he was a contestant on his the Apprentice), then comes up with the idea to to bet for more money. Eventually this gamble resurrects Trump, but he is never able to deliver any actual facts to reports who ask how much money he really has.
Overall , this is a fair TV movie. The background on Trump's father and his late brother who died at an early age from apparent alcoholism are interesting. The rest is just stuff we don't know but if you see it on again, it's worth a look.
