Trump urged his supporters to “keep this team in place” for another four years.
“We will continue to make America big and great, but then we will obviously keep America great. That is why I stand before you tonight to officially launch my campaign for the presidency,” Trump said.
“Our radical Democratic opponents are obsessed with hatred. They want to destroy us, they want to destroy our country as we know it. This is unacceptable, this will not happen,” he added.
On no issue are Democrats more extreme – and more depraved – than when it comes to Border Security. The Democrat Agenda of open borders is morally reprehensible. It is the great betrayal of the American Middle Class and our Country as a whole! #Trump2020 pic.twitter.com/f9RJhpp50J

Thanks to his connections, he managed to get very favorable conditions from the city authorities – reduced taxes for 40 years. In 1980, the work was completed, and on the site of the old hotel there was a new luxury hotel “Grand Hyatt”.
Donald’s next project was a 58-story skyscraper on 5th Avenue – Trump Tower. The construction was completed in 1983, at that time the building was the tallest in New York, had a luxurious finish and was located in a prestigious area. Rich people instantly bought up expensive offices and apartments. The skyscraper has become a real symbol of luxury, and the name Trump has become a world famous brand.
Next, Trump turned his attention to Atlantic City, determined to create an entertainment empire there. He entrusted the project to his brother Robert, who was engaged in the purchase of land and obtaining a license for the gambling business.

Trump later bought it and renamed it the Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino.
In 1990, Donald became the owner of the most expensive hotel-casino in the world, the Taj Mahal.
