Donald Trump on Deal-Making: "You Either Have It or You Don't"

Aired on 04/25/1988 | CC tv-pg
Could you be as successful as Donald Trump? According to Donald, not everyone is cut out for it. In 1988, the real-estate tycoon (and, today, leading Republican presidential candidate) told Oprah that success is a combination of hard work and luck, the luck being the role genetics plays in creating a superstar in any given field. Here, Donald reveals that he wrote his best-seller Trump: The Art of the Deal in part to discourage people who aren't skilled at deal-making from going into the business.
