Earlier Life

Donald John Trump was born on June 14, 1946, at Jamaica Hospital in Queens, New York City. His parents were Fred Trump, a real estate developer of German descent, and Mary Anne MacLeod Trump, an immigrant from Scotland. Trump grew up with four siblings in Jamaica Estates and attended the private Kew-Forest School until seventh grade. He then went to the New York Military Academy, a private boarding school, and later enrolled at Fordham University before transferring to the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Trump graduated in 1968 with a degree in economics.

During his college years, Trump received four student draft deferments during the Vietnam War era. He was deemed fit for military service in 1966 but was later classified as eligible to serve in 1968. However, he received a medical deferment due to bone spurs, which permanently disqualified him from service in 1972. In 2015, his lawyer Michael Cohen threatened legal action against Trump’s colleges, high school, and the College Board if they released Trump’s academic records.
