How Old Is Donald Trump and When Is His Birthday?

Donald Trump turned 75 on June 14 and his political action committee (PAC) has called on donors to "surprise" the former president with donations to mark the occasion.

The website of Save America, the PAC Trump created, encourages donors to opt-in and match any donations to the committee with a contribution for Trump's birthday on June 14.

"President Trump's birthday is coming up on June 14th and we want to surprise him with a record breaking fundraising day!" a message on the website reads.

"Will you help us?"

For the first time, Trump will not be able to share messages from well wishers on Twitter and Facebook, since he was banned by both social media platforms.

When is Donald Trump's birthday and how old is he?

Trump was born on June 14, 1946, which means he turned 75 at the beginning of this week. Born to Frederick Christ Trump and Mary Anne MacLeod at Jamaica Hospital in Queens, New York City, Trump is the second-youngest of five children. He was preceded by Maryanne, Fred Jr. and Elizabeth and followed by younger brother Robert.

Fred Jr. died from a heart attack in 1981 at the age of 42, while Robert died in August last year at the age of 71.

How old was Donald Trump when he launched The Trump Organization?

Having graduated from Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor's degree in economics in 1968, Trump began working at his father's real estate company, Trump Management.

Three years later, he became president of the firm, which owned middle-class rental housing in New York City's outer boroughs and subsequently renamed it The Trump Organization—the company had used the name in the past, along with a series of other monikers without settling on an official single formal name. By 1981, Trump organisation was officially registered as a corporation.

How old was Donald Trump when he took office?

Trump was 70 years and 220 days old when he officially took office as the 45th U.S. President on January 20, 2017. At the time, that made him the oldest man to ever assume the presidency, just pipping Ronald Reagan, who was two weeks short of his 70th birthday when he was inaugurated on January 20, 1981.

By the time his second term ended eight years later, Reagan was the oldest man to ever hold the role of U.S. President. That particular distinction will eventually pass onto President Joe Biden, who will be 82-year-old by the time his first term ends in January 2025.

At 78 years of age, Biden became the oldest person to assume the presidency in January this year.

How did Donald Trump spend his previous birthdays?

Trump spent his 74th birthday last year playing golf at his club in Bedminster, New Jersey, before flying back to Washington, D.C. Typically, Trump also took the time to tweet, sharing messages from his supporters and complaining about his treatment by Twitter.

His daughter Ivanka Trump and son Eric Trump both posted happy birthday messages on Instagram.

A year earlier, the celebrations were far more low-key and involved meetings with cabinet members and an appearance on FOX's TV show Fox and Friends.

His previous two birthdays as President were similarly understated, a far cry from the at times extravagant celebrations that characterized his birthdays in the past.

According to The Washington Post, the celebrations for Trump's 42nd birthday in 1988 includes a "15-foot spaceship zooming from the stage to hover amid smoke and flashing lasers above the birthday boy and his wife Ivana." Billy Crystal and Liza Minnelli were among the celebrities reading out congratulatory messages.

Five years later, Trump's second wife, Marla Maples, treated him to a "Renaissance Man" themed party in his Castle Casino—which has since been rebranded as the Golden Nugget—in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Trump's celebrated his 50th birthday in style in 1996, with a chocolate decorated with a portrait of himself as Superman. Unsurprisingly, a dollar sign replaced the trademark "S" symbol on the superhero's chest.
