Donald J. Trump was a real-estate developer and businessman who owned, managed, or licensed his name to several hotels, casinos, golf courses, resorts, and residential properties in the New York City area and around the world. Beginning in the 1980s, Trump also lent his name to scores of retail ventures, including branded lines of clothing, cologne, food, and furniture.  In the early 21st century his private conglomerate, the Trump Organization, comprised some 500 companies involved in a wide range of businesses, including hotels and resorts, residential properties, merchandise, and entertainment and television.

Beginning in the mid-1980s, Trump periodically mused in public about running for president, but those moments were widely dismissed in the press as publicity stunts. In 1999 he switched his voter registration from Republican to the Reform Party and established a presidential exploratory committee. Though he ultimately declined to run in 2000, he coauthored a book that year, “The America We Deserve,” in which he set forth his socially liberal and economically conservative political views. Trump later rejoined the Republican Party, and he maintained a high public profile during the 2012 presidential election. In June 2015 Trump announced that he would be a candidate in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee as his last two opponents, Ted Cruz and John Kasich, dropped out of the race. Running against the Democratic Party’s candidate, former First Lady Hillary Clinton, Trump won a number of critical “Rust Belt” states and was elected the 45th U.S. President on November 8, 2016. Trump took the oath of office on January 20, 2017 in Washington, D.C.

Offered is President Trump’s signature, in blue marker, on a typewritten copy of the Oath of Office, dated January 20, 2017 on White House stationary. The 8½ x 11-inch white sheet has “Memorandum The White House Washington” in blue type across the top of the page, with the date and oath in bold black type. Trump’s signature is on the lower third of the page. The sheet has blue ink on the top edge. Trump was administered the oath by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts on the steps of the U.S. Capital. This comes with a LOA from Beckett Authentication.
