Donald Trump remains a controversial figure in the history of American politics and we simply can’t blame him for that.

To the surprise of many, our dear Donald became the unexpected 45th president of the United States of America.

There is no doubt that he has embraced his job as the number one citizen of the United States with optimum responsibility as many never expected, and to be honest he has achieved a lot which Americans should be a little bit happy about.

But even with all this achievements, reforms, and so on, there is still a lot we still don’t know about Donald Trump.

So let us check out those things.

Donald’s late mother Mary Anne Macleod at the age of 18 migrated to America as a poor immigrant from Scotland with just fifty dollars.

14. Donald is Romantic

Unlike what people would think about Donald, but in an interviews with ET Online, Melania Trump revealed that her husband being Donald is a bit romantic as they share a tight bond together.

She also said that they enjoy their private moments together.

13. He doesn’t drink alcohol

Donald Trump may have made a lot of awful comments which only a drunk person can make, but the real truth is that he doesn’t even take alcohol.

So that means whatever nasty comment he has made was well thought by him as he was in his right mind and not drunk like many will think.

12. The death toll at the Trump Casino

Between 2008 and 2011, one out of eight murders in Atlantic City was connected to the Taj Mahal which of course is owned by Donald.

This brought up a lot of issues for him before he eventually let off the casino due to his many bankruptcies.

11. He is into winery

Donald without doubt is a jack of all trades as he invests his money in virtually everything he can.

Some years back he bought a 1, 000 acres vine yard at an auction which he had almost no use for.

But in 2012 he bought a winery which he then handed over to his son Eric.

10. He is the master of debts and bankruptcies

In this area nobody comes close to Donald Trump, but one thing about him which many people admire is that he always knows how to bail himself out from his many debts and bankruptcies.

9. He detests guns

As president of the United States, Trump has paid a lot of attention to gun control and to the surprise of many he doesn’t allow guns on his properties.

But of course, his security personnels are always armed.

So be warned!

8. He has donated more to Democrats than Republicans

Even before deciding to run for the presidency on the platform of the Republican party, Donald was a big time donor to the United States government which has been majorly run by the Democrats.

He once donated $25, 000 to Ronald Regan for his presidential election and he also donated $5, 000 to the Edward M. Kennedy Centre for study and many other donations which were affiliated with the democrats.

7. He is a Sagittarius

Trump’s astrological moon sign is Sagittarius as he was born on the 14th of June, 1946.

And it isn’t a surprise because Donald Trump has all the characteristics of a person whose astrological moon sign is Sagittarius.

Those qualities include talking a lot, being straight forward and never filtering there comments.

6. He was born a blond

Donald Trump’s hair has remained a controversial point, but he seems to enjoy it all.

According to a lot of his childhood photos, Donald was born with a blond hair, but he continually bleaches it.

Donald maybe the type of person that will comment on virtually everything, but one question he continually shies away from is that of his hair.

Back in 2006, Donald reportedly donated $1, 000 to the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Fund, which was a fund promoted by actor Tom Cruise who is a staunch member of the church of scientology.

Donald Trump may have made this donation unknowingly as he is not a fan of scientology.

3. He is a big wedding spender

Donald Trump’s wedding with celebrity wife Melania came with its own records.

The 2005 wedding set the record for the second most expensive wedding cake ever with the first position being held by Prince Williams and Kate Middleton.

15 Weird Things You Didn’t Know About Mark Zuckerberg

Published

on

This post is all about Weird Things about Mark Zuckerberg.

Mark Zuckerberg has achieved a lot of success at a very young age, the kind of success that a lot of people can only dream of.

Mark Zuckerberg according to a lot of people is a nerd, but for me the real truth about this young man is that he is simply unique.

These uniqueness of his can also be mistaken by a lot of people as being weird or awkward.

Let us now check out those weird things about this Facebook founder.

Table of Contents

15. He Prefers His dog over his wife

Mark Zuckerberg’s wife Priscilla is not the type who loves being on the spot light, but on the rare occasions she has been interviewed, she came clean with the most important people in her husband’s life.

According to Priscilla, Mark’s number one priority is his great invention which is Facebook as he is always trying his best to further improve the social media.

The second on the list of most important things in his life is his Hungarian Sheep dog who has a Facebook page which has millions of followers.

While the third on the list is his wife.

But of course, this is a joke because Mark can’t really choose a dog over his wife, it is simply impossible, but a bit weird I must say.

Do you agree with me?

14. He has no sense of fashion

It is no surprise that a man as busy as Mark Zuckerberg will have no time to wear the latest designer clothes or sneakers.

To avoid all these problems he simply stock to a daily routine of wearing the same type of clothes.

Mark’s iconic fashion style is his T-shirt, hoodie, jeans and a pair of sneakers.

It was also because of his poor taste in fashion that he was named as one of the worst dressed men of Silicon Valley in 2011 by GQ.

13. You earn more than him

Being the founder of Facebook, a company worth billions of dollars, you would also expect him to have billions as salary.

But to the surprise of most people, Mark pays himself just $1 per years.

What!

This is definitely weird!

12. Mark is a vegetarian

In 2011, Mark gave up eating meat and became a vegetarian.

His reason was that he couldn’t continue eating animals who gave up their lives daily to serve as food for us human beings.

Really!

11. Mark is color blind

Have you ever wondered why Facebook’s iconic color is blue, in spite of the thousands of colors known Mark still choose blue.

Well, it wasn’t just a coincidence, it was for a reason.

And the reason was that since birth Mark have had a type of color blindness known as Red-green color blindness which allows him to see the blue color best.

So that is why he opted for the blue color at the initial stage of Facebook.

10. It all began in his Dormitory

Unlike most students who spend all their time in the University partying, watching movies, hanging out with their friends and doing other crazy things, Mark dedicated most of his time to his future.

Mark began to work on Facebook after his first social media network in Harvard called FaceMesh was shut down by the school authorities because it was against the school’s guidelines.

It was after FaceMesh was shut down that he created a website called Facebook.com while in his dorm with some of his friends.

After he moved from his dorm to tech Centre, Palo Alto, California, he changed the name to Facebook.

9. The cheap marriage

Any millionaire or billionaire you know, would definitely spend lots of money when it comes to parties and ceremonies then talk les of a wedding.

But Mark being the simple gentle man we all know him as almost has no taste in luxury.

Mark and Priscilla got married in a cheap back yard wedding ceremony which was only attended by a few people.

The invited friends weren’t even aware that they were going for a wedding as they were told that it was to celebrate Priscilla’s graduation from medical school.

8. Mark and Priscilla’s first meeting was a bit awkward

Mark and his wife Priscilla met for the first time at a Fraternity party while they were in line for the bathroom.

Mark made the first move by approaching Priscilla.

According to Priscilla, as of that time she saw Mark as a nerd, but loved a lot of things about him.

So that is why she agreed to go out on a date with him.

7. He was already a programmer by the age of 12

By the age of 12 a lot of kids just play around and take nothing serious.

But at the age of 12, Mark Zuckerberg was already a big time programmer and inventor.

As of then he created an instant messaging program called ZuckNet which alerted his dentist father whenever a patient arrived.

6. He knew coding more than his tutor

After Mark’s father saw the incredible talent his son portrayed, he decided to sharpen his skills by hiring a programming tutor who would teach him more.

But to the surprise of his tutor, Mark already knew everything he was about to teach him.

5. He could have sold Facebook

There is no doubt that Facebook is very dear to Mark Zuckerberg, because if not he could have sold it a long time ago and made more money for himself.

A lot of companies that tabled billions of dollars just to acquire the software include Microsoft, Myspace, Google, NBC, Yahoo, Viacom and a whole lot of others.

But in spite of all the money, Mark didn’t let go.

4. Mark Zuckerberg is on Twitter

Hardly do you see a company’s CEO being a fan of another company, especially when the company is a competition.

But Mark doesn’t mind at all.

He’s been on twitter since 2009, but he isn’t all that active as he barely has up to 20 posts on the social network.

3. The fitness goal

Not every billionaire has the time to engage in fitness activities but that is with the exception of the young and vibrant Mark Zuckerberg.

Back in 2016, he set a goal for himself which was to run 365 miles during the course of that year.

He completed this goal just few months before the year came to an end.

2. He is a fan of Hollywood

Mark may be a busy billionaire, but he still has the time to release his many stresses and he does so by watching movies.

One of his favorite movies is The return of Xander Cage which he can literally quote every one of Vin Diesel’s lines.

Vin Diesel and the Facebook founder have a very strong relationship and hang out sometimes.

1. His simple T-shirt is very expensive

Mark has created a unique type of fashion for himself which is his usual T-shirt, a hoodie, Nike sneakers and a pair of jeans.

The clothes are very simple and prevent him from making a lot of decisions when it comes to which outfit to wear.

One of his custom T-shirt costs a whopping $300 to $400 and it is made by Italian designer Brunello Cucinelli.
