Donald Trump

Donald John Trump, born in 1946, was president of the United States from 2017 to 2021, as well as a billionaire businessman and television presenter. His presidency was marked by drama and controversy. On 6 January 2021, supporters of Trump stormed Congress in an attempt to thwart the certification of Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election the previous November. Trump had spread false claims that he had in fact won the election and encouraged the crowd to march to the Capitol building. A Democratic-led congressional committee is investigating his involvement in the riot. Find our latest news and comment here.
