Few Americans have had the the financial success of Donald J. Trump. Trump started working in the 1960s for his father in the real estate industry. His father soon discovered his son’s tremendous skill at developing buildings in the heart of New York City. Now, in 2015, Trump is leading in some polls to be the next President of the United States.

Many Saegertown students will be of age to vote when the election is held and have a chance to participate for the first time. “We need a businessman not a community organizer,” said senior Steve Arblaster, who is in favor of a Trump presidency.

Trump’s business skills have earned him a net worth of over four billion dollars. He was able to financially save himself from the real estate crash of the early 1990s. An unofficial survey was given in Mrs. Dee Henry’s government class, and 47 percent of students supported Trump. Not all are in favor of his candidacy, though. “Trump has no political experience,” said senior Dan Simmerman.

People throughout the nation will cast their votes throughout February and March in the Republican primaries. According to realclearpolitics.com, Trump currently leads, with Ben Carson in second. Whatever political views Saegertown students have, they will definitely have the chance to participate in an important election.
