Trump: The Art of the Deal

Trump: The Art of the Deal ᥩ ᗪ Trump: The Art of the Deal download ᦦ Author Donald J Trump ᧅ DEALING A Week in the Life IDONT do it for the money Ive got enough, much than Ill ever need I do it to do it Deals are my art form Other people paint beautifully on canvas or write wonderful poetry I like making deals, preferably big deals Thats how I get my kicks Most people are surprised by the way I work I play it very loose I dont carry a briefcase I try not to schedule too many meetings I leave my door open You cant be imaginative or entrepreneurial if youve got too much structure I prefer to come to work each day and just see what develops There is no typical week in my life I wake up most mornings very early, around six, and spend the first hour or so of each day reading the morning newspapers I usually arrive at my office by nine, and I get on the phone Theres rarely a day with fewer than fifty calls, and often it runs to over a hundred In between, I have at least a dozen meetings The majority occur on the spur of the moment, and few of them last longer than fifteen minutes I rarely stop for lunch I leave my office by six thirty, but I frequently make calls from home until midnight, and all weekend long It never stops, and I wouldnt have it any other way I try to learn from the past, but I plan for the future by focusing exclusively on the present Thats where the fun is And if it cant be fun, whats the point MONDAY 9 00 A.M.My first call is to Alan Ace Greenberg, on the trading floor of Bear Sterns, a major Wall Street investment banking firm Alan is the CEO of Bear Sterns, hes been my investment banker for the past five years, and hes the best there is Two weeks ago, we began buying stock in Holiday Inns It was selling in the 50s As of this morning, Alan tells me, I own just over one million shares, or slightly than 4 percent of the company The stock closed Friday at 65 a share, mostly, Alan says, because word is out on the street that Ive been a big buyer, and theres speculation I am planning a run at the company The truth is Im keeping my options open I may ultimately go for control of Holiday, which I think is somewhat undervalued At the current stock price, I could get control for less than 2 billion Holidays three casino hotels could be worth nearly that muchand the company owns another 300,000 hotel rooms besides A second option, if the stock price goes high enough, is to sell my stake and take a very nice profit If I did that today, Id already be up about 7 million The third possibility is that Holiday may eventually offer to buy back my shares, at a premium, simply to get rid of me If the premium is big enough, Ill sell In any case, I enjoy seeing the lengths to which bad managements go to preserve what they call their independencewhich really just means their jobs 9 30 A.M.Abraham Hirschfeld calls me, looking for advice Abe is a successful real estate developer but he wants to be a politician Unfortunately for Abe, hes a far better developer than politician This fall, Abe tried to run for lieutenant governor against Governor Cuomos hand picked candidate, Stan Lundine Cuomo led a court fight to get Hirschfeld off the ballot on technical grounds, and sure enough, halfway into the campaign, the court ruled Hirschfeld out Abe knows Im friendly with the governor, and he wants my advice now on whether he should endorse Cuomo or switch parties and endorse Cuomos opponent I tell him its a no contest questionstick with a winner and a good guy at that We set a meeting for Thursday 10 00 A.M.I call Don Imus to thank him Imus has one of the most successful radio shows in the United States on WNBC, and hes been helping to raise money for the Annabel Hill fund Im amazed at how this has snowballed into such a media event It began last week when I saw a national news report by Tom Brokaw about this adorable little lady from Georgia, Mrs Hill, who was trying to save her farm from being foreclosed Her sixty seven year old husband had committed suicide a few weeks earlier, hoping his life insurance would save the farm, which had been in the family for generations But the insurance proceeds werent nearly enough It was a very sad situation, and I was moved Here were people whod worked very hard and honestly all their lives, only to see it all crumble before them To me, it just seemed wrong Through NBC I was put in touch with a wonderful guy from Georgia named Frank Argenbright, whod become very involved in trying to help Mrs Hill Frank directed me to the bank that held Mrs Hills mortgage The next morning, I called and got some vice president on the line I explained that I was a businessman from New York, and that I was interested in helping Mrs Hill He told me he was sorry, but that it was too late They were going to auction off the farm, he said, and nothing or no one is going to stop it That really got me going I said to the guy You listen to me If you do foreclose, Ill personally bring a lawsuit for murder against you and your bank, on the grounds that you harassed Mrs Hills husband to his death All of a sudden the bank officer sounded very nervous and said hed get right back to me Sometimes it pays to be a little wild An hour later I got a call back from the banker, and he said, Dont worry, were going to work it out, Mr Tramp Mrs Hill and Frank Argenbright told the media, and the next thing I knew, it was the lead story on the network news By the end of the week, wed raised 40,000 Imus alone raised almost 20,000 by appealing to his listeners As a Christmas present to Mrs Hill and her family, weve scheduled a mortgage burning ceremony for Christmas Eve in the atrium of Trump Tower By then, Im confident, well have raised all the money Ive promised Mrs Hill that if we havent, Ill make up any difference I tell Imus hes the greatest, and I invite him to be my guest one day next week at the tennis matches at the U.S Open I have a courtside box and I used to go myself almost every day Now Im so busy I mostly just send my friends 11 15 A.M.Harry Usher, the commissioner of the United States Football League, calls Last month, the jury in the antitrust suit we brought against the National Football League ruled that the NFL was a monopoly, but awarded us only token damages of one dollar Ive already let the better players on my team, the New Jersey Generals, sign with the NFL But the ruling was ridiculous We argue about the approach we should take I want to be aggressive What worries me, I say to Harry, is that no one is pushing hard enough on an appeal 12 00 noon Gerry Schoenfeld, head of the Shubert Organization, the biggest Broadway theater owners, calls to recommend a woman for a job as an office administrator He tells me the woman specifically wants to work for Donald Trump, and I say shes crazy but Ill be happy to see her We talk a little about the theater business, and I tell Gerry Im about to take my kids to see Cats, one of his shows, for a second time He asks if Im getting my tickets through his office I tell him that I dont like to do that sort of thing Dont be silly, he says We have a woman here whose job it is to handle tickets for our friends Heres her number Dont hesitate to call Its a nice gesture from a very nice guy 1 15 P.M.Anthony Gliedman stops by to discuss the Wollman Rink project Gliedman was housing commissioner under Ed Koch At the time we fought a lot, and even though I ended up beating him in court, I always thought he was bright I dont hold it against people that they have opposed me Im just looking to hire the best talent, wherever I can find it Tony has been helping to coordinate the rebuilding of the Wollman Skating Rink in Central Park, a project the city failed at so miserably for seven years In June I offered to do the job myself Now were ahead of schedule, and Tony tells me that hes set up a press conference for Thursday to celebrate the last important step in construction pouring the concrete It doesnt sound like much of a news event to me, and I ask him if anyone is likely to show up He says at least a dozen news organizations have RSVPd yes So much for my news judgment.Trump
