Donald Jr. accused his father of a rough patch in their marriage and ignored him for a year.
“Look, it’s hard to be a 12-year-old. You’re not exactly a man, but you think so.” You think you know everything. Every day you go to school and you see the first page in the magazine: “The best sex I ever had” and divorce. And you don’t even know what that means. At this age, children are naturally cruel. Your personal life becomes very public, but I had nothing to do with it. My parents had,” he says.

Then, he studied with merits at a business school, the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and got a bachelor’s degree in Economics. He chanced to get a scholarship of $300 a month there that raised the respect for a dollar.
“We were spoiled in many ways, but we were always taught to understand the price of a dollar. If there appeared what we want, we should have earned it ourselves. Even in college, we were financially responsible. I had 300 bucks a month. All that I wanted, except this, I had to earn,” he says.
After graduating from high school, Donald moved away to the city of Aspen, Colorado. Far from family, he enjoyed his time outside while hunting, fishing, skiing, working as a local bartender. Donald still loves hunting like his brother Eric. In his interviews, Trump Jr. admits that hunting, as well as fishing, gives him the opportunity to plunge into the arms of nature.
