Donald Trump: "There's No More Important Word Than 'Luck'"

Aired on 04/25/1988 | CC tv-pg
Before he was the leading Republican Candidate in the 2016 presidential race, Donald Trump was busy overseeing his vast real-estate empire, becoming a leading name in the world of business. After writing a book on how to become a successful businessman entitled Trump: The Art of The Deal, he went on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 1988 to discuss both his personal and professional lifestyle.

Trump divulged his experience with people try to touch or grab him in the street because of his success, thinking that perhaps some of his luck might rub off on them. When asked about his view on luck, Donald preferred to speak about the power of hard work. "You can help create or help make your own luck," he insisted. Here, he explains his belief on getting ahead in life.
