There has never been a presumptive nominee for a major party quite like Republican Donald Trump. His firsts:
First reality TV star to be nominee Trump hosted 14 seasons of “The Apprentice” on NBC. He claimed in a personal financial disclosure form that he earned more than $213 million over the course of the show. It gave Trump his signature catchphrase, “You’re fired.”
First nominee to be inducted into the World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Fame The World Wrestling Entertainment website refers to him as an “outspoken alpha male.” He has clobbered Vince McMahon with a clothesline move, shaved his opponent’s head and gotten a neck-wrenching move from Stone Cold Steve Austin.
First nominee with a supporting role in a Bo Derek movie In 1989, Trump played himself in “Ghosts Can’t Do It,” a widely panned movie that was a success at the Razzie awards, winning worst picture, worst actress, worst director and worst supporting actor: Trump.
First nominee to have been divorced twice He divorced his first wife, Ivana, a Czech-American model, in 1990, and his second wife, Marla, an actress, in 1999. He married his current wife, Melania, in 2005.
First casino magnate to become a nominee Never before has a casino owner with towering properties in Las Vegas, and previously Atlantic City, been a nominee.
First nominee to have his own line of steaks, hand towels, chocolates and an airline Trump has put his name in big gold letters on commercial goods as varied as rib-eyes and chocolates, something he reminded voters of during a speech in March.
First nominee to own a major modeling agency Trump is better known for his involvement in the Miss USA and Miss Universe beauty pageants, but he also founded a modeling agency, Trump Model Management, in 1999.
First to inspire a ‘Sesame Street’ character A grouch with a flamboyant hairstyle and the catchphrase “I have more trash than all of you,” Donald Grump arrived on “Sesame Street” in 2005 looking for an apprentice.
