一. Grandpa Trump - Friedrich Trump
This is the last of the wild west of North America.
There are tough guys and no law enforcement around.
sporting ladies - Friedrich gets into prostitution as well.
F.Trump is not a guy who it’s going to go out into this frigid, cold river, and a pen for little bits of gold.
He had a better idea his sell these guys drinks and food, if they cannot pay with money, they can pay with gold or gold dust.
make a serious amount of money赚了一大笔钱
But soon with drinking and fighting and whoring it all got out of hand.
And the Mounties came into town and started closing establishments down.
He took that as a high sign to leave,
just as he had left Monte Crista in the black, he left a Whitehorse with a nest egg.
Figure it out when to get there, he had a business plan, and then he left it was time to leave.合适的时机
The theme that runs through all the Trumps, the one thing they’ve never forgotten, however much money they’ve made, however successful they become, is restlessness.
The desire to always move on, always find the next opportunity.
it’s a very American story in that way.
3. He reinvents himself here in the US, Freidrid Trump opened a barbershop on Wall Street华尔街，
he was biding his time, 伺机

when he saw his opportunity he went for it.

Queens was just the beginning to take off.
But you wouldn’t have necessarily grasped that this was where the future was going to be.
But frigid was somebody who was able to take the long view.看的长远

Fred Fred Trump was a chip off of the old block of his father.如出一辙？
The American economy fell through the floor.经济一落千丈
Desperation is the land of the inherit and inhabit.
Dark times are times of great opportunity for people of great stealth.身怀绝技？
His plan to save the economy,
It included huge government funding for building programs.
The Trump empire as it was built in the 30s was in many ways a consequence of great liberal policies.
Fred was the original state capitalist.国家资本主义者
milking every dollar that he can through politician connections.政治关系？
This was the new frontier.
the pull of the immigration, the pool of the New World, away from the poverty and the tragedy of the early part of the 20th century in Europe, was very strong.
Soon the Trump family will get is greatest showman.
1946, forth child.
Made most of his fortune after the end of the Second World War,
President Eisenhower announced a huge funding program to build homes for the veterans.
Fred’s scam was simple,
I asked the government for more money then he needed to build the houses and essentially pocketed the difference.
the key to it is to know the real rules, not rules that the suckers play.
Fred needed excellent connections for his scheme, including with original official.
President Eisenhower found out trump’s use of his initiative, he was furious.
it was a national scandal.
this is the guy who is smart enough to see the seams法律漏洞？
he can identify where he can exploit something and not break the law.
Donald was in essence, a pretty bad kid.
he was rough, violent with other keys, disrespectfully, always disrupting the class in the school that he had attended.
and eventually went too far.
I think there was a real emptiness inside him,内心空洞
and if you have no empathy, you’re fit as Shakespear would say for “stratagems and spoils”.
There was the mantra communicated to the Trump boys as they were growing up,
it came from their father, “you are killers, your kings”.
by that he meant you had to be rude, be prevail, and you are to rule.
Donald说他哥：Freddy was nice and people took advantage of him.
不租房给有色人种colored people/少数族裔a minority person, 只租白人被起诉，但他律师Roy Cohn却反诉政府。
Roy Cohn said Trumps were being persecuted by the government, and he countersued for $100 million.
that’s sort of “don’t back down, counterpunch” style we knew from Donald Trump now, Roy Cohn was the master of that.
Donald was determined to conquer Manhattan, Donald always has this antipathy for old money in New York, he was kind of the punk rocker among the circle.
When you look at the Trump family story, you start to see patterns.
An immigrants who run bars and brothels in the golden rush,
A mother who arrived in America with nothing,
A father who built a housing empire on the edge of the law,
Success, lack of moral qualms.
