thedailybeast.com – Donald Trump glided into politics nearly one year ago—and since then it’s never been the same.
“That is some group of people—thousands!”
That was how Donald Trump began his first speech as a presidential candidate, on June 16, 2015, after riding down the escalator in the lobby of Trump Tower, to the tune of Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In the Free World.”
Two days before, he’d turned sixty-nine years old.
He was, then, a reality television star who’d been a celebrity since the 1970s, when he’d started in the real estate business, following in the footsteps of his developer father.
