Donald Trump

As one of the best-known businessmen in the world, Donald Trump’s name is synonymous with money and success.

As the presenter of The Apprentice USA, he strikes fear into the hearts of young hopefuls with his catchphrase ‘You’re Fired’.

His business empire extends from the US to Asia and South America and in February this year, he expanded into Ireland when he bought the Doonbeg Lodge in Co. Clare for 15 million euros.

That’s where we’re broadcasting from today and its new owner Donald Trump, or The Donald as he is affectionately known, spoke to Sean this morning.
