Axios article Donald Trump has always loved Christmas.
The president, for one, even had his own holiday card featuring a Christmas tree and a tree stand, complete with a “God Bless America” card.
But it wasn’t until the early 1990s that the real estate mogul decided to give back to the people.
Trump’s family had purchased the Plaza Hotel in 1980 and renamed it the Trump International Hotel.
The new hotel, a three-story luxury hotel, featured a Christmas themed theme and the name “Trump Tower.”
The tower was the centerpiece of a massive, $1 billion renovation.
In addition to Trump’s signature tower, the tower also featured a shopping mall, a casino, restaurants, a luxury spa and a golf course.
The Trump International tower was built in 1988, but Trump’s daughter Ivanka took over management of the hotel in 1994, when she left her husband’s administration to run the Trump Organization.
Ivanka said the hotel had an enormous financial success story, with the hotel generating $1.5 billion in annual revenue, as well as a total of $4.5 million in charitable contributions.
The first Trump Tower hotel opened in January 1994.
Since then, the Trump family has invested $10 billion in hotels, resorts, and other property across the globe, according to the Trump Foundation.
The Trump International hotel has hosted celebrities, athletes, and celebrities, as Trump has hosted many world leaders, including Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
In 2013, Trump made headlines when he told The Washington Post that he would not be attending the White House Christmas tree lighting ceremony because he is not “a Christian.”
Trump added that he was just “doing the right thing.”
