Donald Trump Said His Dad Gave Him A 'Small' $1M Loan To Get Started


October 26, 2015

Donald Trump opened up about his (humble?) beginnings during a New Hampshire town hall meeting hosted by the "Today" show.

Trump recalled the time his father gave him a "small" loan of $1 million to get started in the real estate world.

"I came into Manhattan," Trump said. "I had to pay him back. I had to pay him back with interest. But I came into Manhattan, I started buying up properties. I did great.”

After host Matt Lauer pressed Trump on the fact that many people wouldn't consider that figure small, the real estate mogul said he turned that loan into a bigger fortune.
