Donald Trump built his wealth in real estate. After inheriting a portion of his father's real estate business, he expanded it through strategic property deals, hotel developments, and branding.

Trump also ventured into entertainment, including his popular show The Apprentice and his social media app Truth Social, which recently went public via a SPAC merger and now trades as Trump Media & Technology Group Corp. DJT.

Investing in real estate is not as easy as it once was, especially with interest rates surging in recent years.
