President Trump made the sweetest gesture just weeks before Wladziu Valentino Liberace’s death. The famous pianist told Oprah in an interview the anecdote of when he “went shopping with Donald Trump.”
“‘I had a nice fur coat on, and we went up to this furrier, and Donald saw this coat and he said, ‘Why don’t you try that on? That kind of looks like you,” Liberace said, pointing to the coat, which was being worn by Oprah.
‘And I tried it on,’ he continued. ‘I said, ‘Do you really think it looks like me?’ He says, ‘I like it better than the one you’re wearing.’ So I say, ‘Well maybe I should get it in then.’ He said, ‘No, wait, wait.”
‘So we left, and I said, ‘Why wouldn’t you let me buy that coat?’ Because, he said, ‘I can get a better price for you.””
The sweet story portrays Trump in a light that the media has been omitting from their stories: a sweet, kind, but strongly business-minded man. Even before becoming President of the United States, Donald Trump always had a mind that worked in the best interest of the buyer.
Investopedia even called Trump “one of the most well-known real estate moguls in the world.”
As President, Trump is making great waves in the American economy. He is prioritizing deal-making by entering deals that will greatly impact both nations. Trump’s deal with China will result in over $250 billion that will not only benefit China, but also the United States.
“’Boeing, General Electric, and Qualcomm were among the U.S. companies securing multi-billion-dollar deals in the announcement, which the White House hopes will go a long way toward addressing complaints about America’s trade deficit with China,’ Breitbart reported at the time.”
Donald Trump shared some of his wisdom in his best-selling book “Trump: The Art of the Deal” which included 11 steps for business success. Trump’s steps are as follows:
- Think big
- Protect the downside and the upside will take care of itself
- Maximize your options
- Know your market
- Use your leverage
- Enhance your location
- Get the word out
- Fight back
- Deliver the goods
- Contain the costs
- Have fun
What Liberace would think of Mr. Trump’s presidency is a mystery, but it’s assumed that he’d be in support of it due to the two sharing many traits.
Alexander Chancellor wrote that the two men were boisterous “with a taste for flamboyant luxury” but nevertheless accepted as everyday men.
‘”Despite his self-indulgence and obsession with luxury, Liberace was accepted by fellow Midwesterners as one of them; and Trump’s flaunting of his billions of dollars doesn’t deter people from regarding him as their champion against a selfish, wealthy elite,’ Chancellor wrote.”
