On 20 January, Donald Trump will officially be the new president of the United States.

On November 8, despite polls that gave Hillary Clinton winner of the election, Donald Trump became the 45th president of the United States.Meanwhile his inauguration on January 20, the billionaire prepares his arrival in the Oval Office, surrounding himself with advisers and reorganizing its program somewhat.

But before becoming president of a nation, especially Donald Trump was at the head of an empire created by his grandfather Frederick Trump in the late 19th century and perpetuated by his father Fred Trump. At his death, the family fortune is estimated at nearly $ 300 million. Naturally, Donald inherit much and will continue the work of his father. The same gestures, the same vision of business, the same love of greenbacks. The proof, in a few years, Donald moved into a loft in the Fifth Avenue in New York, leading several companies, has multiple buildings - including the largest casino in Atlantic City and Trump Taj Mahal - and even presented a reality show "The Apprentice".

An extravagant image and touted

Over time, the billionaire has lost none of his enthusiasm. During the presidential campaign, Donald has often demonstrated in his speech he would drop nothing left to destroy a system to which it belongs for decades. And beside him, his family. His wife, Melania Trump that supports whatever happens, whatever sexist or racist comments. His children Ivanka, charm asset that it intends to use well during the four years of his term, Barron Trump . Or his brother, Jared Kushner, and his former wife, Ivana Trump.


His arrival at the White House looks like a real icing on the cake. The businessman did not expect it, many Americans either. His extravagant image and touted for many populist was too far from that of Barack Obama, the incumbent. With his yellow hair, his orange complexion and often irreverent speech, he nevertheless managed to win the majority of the American people. On this occasion, return images of the last thirty years of Donald Trump.

2016 Retrospective: Trump, the President of Wrath

From the victory of Trump to the rise of extremes, everywhere rage rises, fueled by terrorism and economic injustice.
On January 4, 2016, in Massachusetts. On the fan signs, in front of the famous blond mane: 
"The silent majority supports Trump" and "Obama, you're fired," the slogan of his reality show. 
No one was warned. The gilded doors of the royal elevator open to reveal the "elected president", in long black coat. He is surrounded by his bodyguards. This is the first time that Donald Trump deigns to descend from his 66th floor to walk to journalists packed into the lobby behind a red cord. On December 6, he twitted to demand the cancellation of an order: a new presidential plane. "Too expensive," he decided, as a businessman who refuses an estimate. "I want Boeing to do the figure, but that's too much," he says again in front of the cameras. That's it. Immediately, he pivots and resumes the royal lift. Trump has just demonstrated that he would not be fond of symbols of power ... He did not wait to be president of the United States to own his own plane. His name appears in letters larger than those of "Air Force One". The king of the bling-bling is in the process of inventing the low-profile presidency.

The most mocked man in America now has the world at his feet

The most mocked man in America now has the world at his feet. Friends, enemies and even an encounter, already, with a head of government, the Japanese Shinzo Abe. To woo him, all make the move in his tower, until recently called a temple of bad taste. Atrium in pink marble, more than 20 meters high (6 floors), where walleye is omnipresent from the elevator to the windows through the Escalator, the Trump Tower is not only an attraction; It is now the heart of Manhattan.







Property developer Guido Lombardi, one of the oldest residents, disagrees: "Before the election, here, it was already the center of New York. He has been living on the 63rd floor for twenty years, with his wife, Gianna, vice-president of the syndic of condominiums headed, of course, by Donald Trump himself. Guido knows the new president well. On the evening of his election, he organized a party with his Russian neighbor. They had invited about sixty people. "Donald had promised to come, but the secret service agents were opposed because we had not gone to the metal detector," he said.

Inaugurated in 1983, the Trump Tower made the 45th President of the United States the King of Manhattan. She allowed him to emancipate himself from his father, who had been satisfied with a success in the suburbs of Queens. The building is next to Tiffany, his favorite luxury store, which he named his second daughter. Trump is so proud of his tower that he devoted a nearly fifty-page chapter to him in his best-selling book The Art of the Deal, the Bible of Trumpian America. "It is the first building he built, the most successful also," says Barbara Res, who oversaw the work - since then she has quarreled with her former boss. The construction was complicated by the zigzag-shaped façade. At the time, it was a unique project: it housed small boutiques on the ground floor, whereas, usually, it takes a department store to attract customers. In the early 1980s, the US economy was convalescent and the entrepreneur did not have the cash to finance his dream. He became heavily indebted and developed a "reverse marketing strategy" that he later theorized, which was to make amateurs lantern. "The longer the queue, the more I raised prices: I could do it twelve times," he writes.


Soon the tower was filled with stars: Steven Spielberg, Paul Anka, and Bruce Willis, who bought a duplex on the 64th and 65th floors and sold it after two years of construction without ever having lived there. One can still meet Leonardo DiCaprio and his staff of pretty girls with endless legs, when he goes to the Indian billionaires of the 47th floor. "They have a great holiday," says an envious neighbor. Leo was still in Trump's office last week trying to convince him ... of the harmful effects of climate change this time around.

Since the election, everything has changed in the Trump Tower

"What is special here is that all nationalities are represented. The families "old money" [aristocrats] live on Park Avenue or Madison, where it is more expensive, but more noisy, "testifies Guido Lombardi. As soon as it was commercialized, Trump targeted the international clientele. "We saw very early a wave of French, because of the election of François Mitterrand, a dangerous man, because he is not only socialist but he sells to the highest bidder of nuclear technology," he wrote in " The Art of the Deal. " The future head of the White House, already very much in vehemence, has also sold much to the Japanese, whom he does not however appreciate: "because they never laugh." He had a lot of fun in making the rumor - unfounded, but excellent for sales - of the arrival of Prince Charles, freshly married to Diana. Promoter, he works on the 26th floor, in offices connected by a special elevator to his triplex of the summit.

We read everywhere that this penthouse measures 3,000 square meters; In reality, according to his neighbor Guido Lombardi, he would make "only" half. Marble and gilded, this palace is more like Louis XIV than the Presbyterian ancestors of Donald. It would be one of the most expensive apartments in New York. Staff would use skates to avoid scratching the ground. At the edge of an interior fountain decorated with cherubs, Michael Jackson spent hours searching for inspiration while watching the panoramic view ... Trump rented the apartment for $ 100,000 a month, but he always left his door ajar for Allow him to enter his house at any hour of the day. The billionaire said: "I have no need to live in a living room 24 meters long, but the simple fact of having one gives me immense pleasure. "He is the first president in the history of the United States who will feel cramped at the White House, and will even have every reason to find it austere.

Since the election, everything has changed in the Trump Tower. The lobby has become a circus. The "jobseekers" in the future government succeed one another. These billionaires must, as in the reality show "The Apprentice", incur the humiliation of scrolling in front of the cameras before and after their appointment with the boss. They are easily recognized: they have the physics of employment. For Trump, appearances matter: he made the position of Secretary of State (Minister of Foreign Affairs) appear to Mitt Romney, his republican rival, his declared enemy, only because he had the look of a patrician who Could have made him a very chic representative of America, before preferring Rex Tillerson (CEO of ExxonMobil). Trump wants to see all the postulants, and wants the whole world to know. He even wants the observers to follow the meanders of his thought at the will of his Tweet. This method of recruitment is original: George W. Bush and Barack Obama were content to personally receive the happy finalists.

On the 26th floor, candidates wait their turn, sometimes long. Sean Spicer, a close friend of the transition team, tells us that "the appointments take place in Donald Trump's office, usually in the presence of Reince Priebus [his chief of staff] and Steve Bannon [his special adviser]" . The new president also relies on the advice of his daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law Jared Kushner. Robert Johnson, the founder of Black Entertainment Television, an audiovisual group that primarily targets the black population, testifies: "He began the interview by asking me if I thought he would win. I answered "no". It made him smile. Then, without any other frills, he asked me if I would be interested in joining the government. "Some are creative, like Sonny Perdue, the former governor of Georgia, wearing a tie stamped with tractor designs to apply to the Ministry of Agriculture ...







Twenty-six floors below, in the great hall, it is the profound America that floods. Last week, Eileen, a retired Maryland resident, was pleasantly surprised, celebrating her birthday at Trump Grill, the restaurant at the atrium where Donald's father Fred Sitting next to Donald Jr., the eldest son. He had come to lunch there with his wife, Vanessa, and their son Tristan, 5 years old. "The little man ordered salmon!" She exclaimed, still shocked. At this age, it is incredible, it must already have a very refined palate. She was enthusiastic about this little Lord Fauntleroy "so well-bred", and so elegant with his Oxford shirt. 

A few tables sat another Trump, Eric, the younger, beside a guest with whom he talked business. Entering the Trump Tower is almost part of the family, while approaching power. This is evidenced by the bodyguards with their heads, petrified and watching. That does not prevent, on the scene, the Naked Cowboy Robert John Burck to continue to make the clown. This time he sang the serenade in slip and hat while rolling his muscles. Formerly based in Times Square, not far away, the showman migrated to the Trump Tower, "because there is more atmosphere".

This barnum does not please everyone. The tower apartments currently have trouble finding buyers. 56th Street, where residents enter, was blocked from traffic. 4 x 4 armored blacks, bristling with impressive antennae, are ready to start at any moment according to the desiderata of the master of the places. Recently, an Indian billionaire stole a crisis because it had waited ten minutes, in the rain, that the new president leaves the premises. But it is said that Donald drags his feet to move to Washington. He had two dreams of childhood: living in a tower in his name on Central Park and becoming President of the United States. Today he has to choose. Friend Guido Lombardi smiled: "Not only are we delighted that he is entering the White House, but we all hope that he will go there as soon as possible! The billionaires want to live in Versailles. Not at Fort Knox.

George Michael silky voice has helped shift more than 80million records worldwide

But George Michael reveals he still won't quit the deadly weed. By Corrine Barraclough

George Michael's silky voice has helped shift more than 80million records worldwide, making the pop icon a very wealthy man in the process.

He's scooped 11 number ones in the UK and is acclaimed as one of the world's top singer-songwriters. But George's private life has always cast a shadow over his success. In 1998, he was charged with lewd conduct in a public toilet in Los Angeles after accosting an undercover male cop. The incident forced him to admit the truth about his sexuality.
More recently, the superstar smoked marijuana on a TV show, saying the habit kept him "sane".
And now he exclusively reveals that his drug habit has become an addiction - and is threatening his livelihood.
"I wish I'd never started smoking pot," admits George, 43. "It soothes my soul but it also destroys my voice. I am addicted to marijuana - I need it to stay creative.
"The purpose of it is to create a daze. That's why a lot of musicians smoke it - me included. I know I shouldn't do it. It definitely makes the walls of my boxes tumble down. Sometimes when I'm writing songs, I struggle for hours to find the right expression. Then I smoke a joint and five minutes later, I've finished the verse. Maybe I'm lucky that it has this effect on me but I still regret I ever started."
George candidly reveals that he began smoking pot when he lost his partner, Anselmo, to HIV in 1998.
"The strange thing is, I never smoked cigarettes before that. I started smoking when he died. I don't drink much alcohol and, at this time, I had two alternatives - taking sedatives or smoking. I didn't want to take sedatives, so I started smoking marijuana.
"Grief is a very mature feeling," he adds. "If I had to pinpoint the moment I felt like an adult for the very first time, it would be the moment I found out that Anselmo was infected with HIV. It was very surreal. It was my first contact with mortality. That was my step into adulthood. And from that moment on, there was no turning back.
"The moment I found out he was ill, I had this feeling that he was already dead. Instead of focusing on hope, I had already started to mourn."
George has previously admitted smoking up to 25 marijuana spliffs a day. But if smoking is destroying his voice, why isn't he trying to kick the habit?
"I can't function in the real world without being creative - and marijuana keeps me creative," he says. "I was already an established artist when I started smoking. I'm not sure whether I would have become a successful artist had I started smoking as a teenager because pot makes you self-contented and lazy. You are easily satisfied when you are high - which is not good at the beginning of a career. But I'm sure smoking pot is the only thing - as stupid as it is - that makes it possible for me to continue my work."
As well as destroying his voice, isn't pot destroying his memory?
"It's strange how little I remember from the Wham! days because I was working so much," says George. "I was totally sober at that time and although there were some important experiences - like our tour to China - I can hardly remember anything."
Despite his wealth and success, George reckons the best days of his life were before he found fame.
"I never enjoyed being young," he shrugs. "The environment in which I grew up was very oppressive. I started to feel happy when I enjoyed freedom. The happiest time of my life was when I left school and had two jobs. I was an usher in a cinema. I used to be pretty good because I smiled a lot. Apart from that, I earned £70 a week being a DJ and I earned a few pounds as a construction worker during my school holidays. That was a lot of money to me then - and I finally had my own life.
"I wanted to save £500 for a portable DJ set I wanted to buy. I worked for 12 weeks and they were the worst three months of my life. As you can imagine, I'm not made for building work! I had a plan that my sister would drive me to DJ gigs with my own equipment. I was 15, she was 17.
"I worked really hard to save the money and then she failed her driving test! There went my idea of becoming a DJ. At the time, I had my first real girlfriend and I went out with her for six months with £500 in my pocket. What a show-off!"
George now lives with his long-term partner, Kenny Goss, and says his life is "getting better and better". The pair are said to be planning a civil partnership gay wedding.
But George doesn't want to be a house husband.
"I used to like cleaning the house but I haven't vacuumed once this year. You know what comes to my mind when I'm vacuuming? Would Prince ever do this?" he laughs.

Jose Mourinho favourite scorer plays away from wife

FOOTBALL superstar Deco has been caught on camera cheating on his wife with a London hooker.




The Barcelona midfield wizard —favourite player of top manager Jose Mourinho—had sex with the £1,000-a-night vice girl on a trip to Britain three weeks ago.


Twenty minutes later he had a THREESOME with the girl. And 29-year-old Deco's night of debauchery in a London club was all captured on CCTV—along with a vile "roasting" orgy involving four pals and another prostitute.


A guest who witnessed the scenes told us: "I was disgusted. They were acting like animals."


Dad-of-three Deco's doting wife Jaciara will be devastated by his betrayal. After their wedding in April, 2005, Portugal's World Cup hero bragged: "I feel totally fulfilled...I couldn't ask for any more."





His disgrace is worse because he had the nerve to CRITICISE the behaviour of English players after the News of the World revelations about boozy Liverpool star Craig Bellamy attacking John Arne Riise with a golf club.


Giggly


This exposé is the second pasting for Deco—real name Anderson Luis de Souza—this week. The first was when he put Barcelona ahead against Liverpool at the Nou Camp but both Bellamy AND Riise wreaked revenge by scoring and taking a 2-1 victory.


Deco's vile night on the town came on February 6 after a friendly match at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium between his Portugal side and arch-rivals Brazil.


After winning 2-0 Deco and friends celebrated with champagne at ritzy Beauchamp Place in Kensington. But in the early hours he wanted to party on and a pal phoned around to find a discreet nightspot—and girls to entertain them.


Deco and seven mates took two cabs to the club and started drinking beer right away. Ten minutes later four prostitutes—one Chinese, a brunette and two blondes— turned up. To Deco's delight they began to strip in front of him.


The vice girls quickly got down to their G-strings, gyrating in front of Deco and touching each other to get him aroused. Another guest told us: "Deco and his pals were like giggly schoolboys. It all started as a bit of fun but soon got horribly out of hand.


"Deco chose the best-looking, a stunning young East European blonde with a fantastic body. Deco took off his trousers and went into a room with her still wearing his hat and T-shirt.


"Then he sat on the couch as the naked blonde got on her knees to perform oral sex. Two of his friends walked in but he calmly carried on as if they weren't there. Then the girl got on top of Deco and they had full sex, before switching position and doing it again.


"His friends were going wild with the other hookers in the next room. First it was one on one. Then there was two on one girl. And then it got really vile with four men on one girl.


"I couldn't believe my eyes. It was sickening and degrading. They treated the girls like hunks of meat."


After Brazilian-born Deco finished with his girl the camera caught him walking off with a leer on his face. But 20 minutes on he was having sex with her on the couch again. This time a guy in a suit joins in, kissing the girl passionately. Our source added: "Deco is a married man, a father of three and an international idol. But he didn't show a hint of guilt. He should be shamed and deserves to be exposed."


Now the millionaire star faces global humiliation as the damning footage could be posted on the internet.


The scandal comes just seven days after our exposé of the drunken karaoke dust-up among Liverpool stars.


Before facing Liverpool in Barcelona, Deco grabbed the moral high ground and snootily declared: "The cultures are different between Spain and England. There are footballers who drink here but not to the extent of what the Liverpool players did."


Our inside source said: "Deco was confident his wife would never find out about the hooker. Now it's all come back to haunt him. That one night of lust could end his marriage and cost him millions.


"It'll teach him not to make sniffy comments about our different cultures! He's just a two-faced hypocrite!"


Deco achieved worldwide stardom as the driving force behind Jose Mourinho's Champions League win with FC Porto in 2004. But he refused to follow the coach to Chelsea for £4.5 million a season. Instead he chose Barcelona for £2 million and said: "I am tired of listening that the man who made me famous is Mourinho.


"The only person responsible for my success is me."


And now there's only one person responsible for his downfall.

George Michael died at age 53

Music star George Micheal died at age 53 for reasons yet to be determined.

A drug-tormented artist and a complicated sentimental life, British singer George Michael, who plays "Faith" and "Careless Whisper", died of unknown causes at his home at the age of 53.

The popularity of the singer had declined in the 1990s, but he returned in 2004 with the album "Patience ", Which occupied the first place of the sales in the United Kingdom.

The singer of "Club Tropicana", "Last Christmas", "Careless Whisper" and "Faith" has experienced various setbacks related to drugs (cannabis and crack) and alcohol in the past. In particular, he spent four weeks in jail in 2010 after raking, with his Range Rover, a store in northern London under the influence of cannabis and medicines. Three years earlier, he had been found fainted in his Mercedes and admitted to having used drugs, but escaped to prison by performing 100 hours of community service. He had been banned from driving for two years.

After years of speculation about his sexuality, George Michael publicly disclosed his homosexuality in 1998 after being arrested for indecent assault in public toilets in Los Angeles (USA). He later explained that he did not want to talk about it as long as his mother was alive. "People want to see me as a tragic character, having sex in public toilets and taking drugs," but "I do not even see it as weaknesses, it's just what I am," he said, He told the British daily Guardian in 2009.
