Why Donald Trump Jr. Doesn't Like Using the Trump Name

Aired on 02/20/2004 | CC
After billionaire Donald Trump opened his home and office to Oprah Show cameras, Oprah sat down with Donald and his eldest son, Donald Jr., to find out what life was like as a Trump—and what Don Jr. really thought of his father.

Don Jr. admitted that he often omitted his last name when introducing himself to avoid the preconceptions people might have about the child of a famous billionaire. When Oprah asked him what insight he had into his father that most people wouldn't know, Don Jr. said: "He's not as bad a killer as everyone thinks he is. ... He's not this enigma that no one really can understand. He's much more normal than he would ever let on."
