Donald Trump has been a prominent figure in the American public eye for decades, and with the 2024 US Presidential Election quickly approaching, he's back in the spotlight. Whether you're interested in learning about his physical dimensions, his stance on controversial issues, or his latest US presidential odds, we have you covered! Here's everything you've always wanted to know about Teflon Don but were afraid to ask.

What is Donald Trump’s height?  

White House physician Dr. Ronny L. Jackson stated that Trump was six feet and three inches in 2018, the last time his dimensions were publicly released. However, few people believed the statement at the time. The Internet did some deep diving only to discover Trump's driver's license had his height listed as six feet and two inches. His real height is still uncertain, although maybe his hair adds an inch or two? 

What is Donald Trump’s weight? 

As is often the case with Trump, there is no definite answer. Trump’s recent booking record from 2023 listed his weight at 215 pounds, which was nearly 25 pounds lighter than his previously released weight in 2018. Either way, he might be carrying the weight of all the Twitter feuds and political drama. 

Where did Donald Trump go to college? 

Donald Trump attended Fordham University for two years, only to transfer to the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics in 1968. He claimed on multiple occasions that he graduated first in his class at Wharton, but it was later discovered that it may have been a bit of creative storytelling. The University of Pennsylvania student-run newspaper published a list of the students who graduated on the Dean’s list that same year, and Trump’s name was conspicuously absent. In fact, he did not graduate with honors of any kind.  

What is Donald Trump’s net worth? 

Trump’s net worth is like a rollercoaster – it goes up, it goes down, and it causes all kinds of people to scream their heads off. As of late 2023, Trump had a net worth of $2.6 billion. The biggest part of his fortune stems from his earnings from his golf clubs and other resorts, totaling up to approximately $730 million. Another $720 million comes from his real estate properties located in New York, and $230 million is from real estate outside of New York. His personal assets and cash account for roughly $610 million, and an additional $240 million comes from social media and other brand associations. 

What are Donald Trump’s 2024 US Presidential odds? 

Despite Trump’s controversial past, he is still favored to win the 2024 US election at -120, exceeding all other Republican nominees. Joe Biden is directly behind him at +187. However, with Trump’s continuing trials, there is no definite answer to how the election will play out.

What is Donald Trump’s IQ? 

Trump’s alleged IQ stands at 145. To put that into perspective, only 16% of the population has an IQ higher than 115, and just 0.1% of the population has an IQ of 145 or higher. Trump is therefore labeled as a genius, although more than a few Democrats consider that up for debate.

Is Donald Trump still banned from Twitter? 

Trump was permanently banned from Twitter on January 8, 2021 due to the perceived “risk of further incitement of violence.” The ban was a reaction to tweets he shared two days earlier in which he condemned Vice President Mike Pence and seemingly incited his followers to contest the election results and storm the US Capital.

Elon Musk bought Twitter in 2022 and allowed Trump to return to the platform, which he rebranded as X. Trump posted his first tweet in two years on August 24, 2023, using his mug shot along with an all caps message once again questioning the election result.

Who will Donald Trump choose as his vice-presidential running mate? 

Republican vice presidential odds have become a hot topic, even with the election still months away. Kristi Noem is currently the favorite at +350, followed by Elsie Stefanik at +400. Ideally, nominees will pick someone in areas that they are lacking. For instance, Trump does not have a very positive reputation with African Americans or women, due to previous controversial comments directed at these groups. 

Noem has had similar opinions on gun rights, abortion, and other culture war-related issues as Trump, and Stefanik has gained popularity after shaming university presidents over antisemitism allegations. 

Trump will most likely choose his running mate before the Republican National Convention, which begins July 15 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Is Donald Trump going to prison? 

With charges adding up faster than his golf score, Trump's legal status has been a confusing rollercoaster from the get-go with 91 felony charges across four criminal cases in state and federal courts. But what does this mean if he is still running for president? First, let’s dive into the prosecutions Mr. Trump is facing.  

The New York case 

Trump is being accused of falsifying business records in the first degree, with 34 counts. Each count is a maximum sentence of four years. However, the accusations are mostly victimless, so Trump will most likely not serve a jail sentence, but rather would face large fines and possible probation.  

The top secret documents case 

The FBI's raid of Trump's Florida residence in Mar-a-Lago gained a lot of attention when Trump refused to hand over top secret documents he retained from the White House. Trump also has had a history of obstructing justice and making false statements, facing a max of 30 years for both violations. Usually, accusations like these result in prison for several years, and Trump is facing over 30 of these charges. 

The Federal Elections case 

You may have heard about Trump’s statements about the election being “rigged.” Well, he's being charged for trying to change the election results. Two parts of this case should concern Trump since it can negatively impact his running in the upcoming election. He can be convicted of attempting to “block the certification of the election via summoning a mob to attack the Capitol” and he can be convicted of “conspiracy to defraud the United States and conspiring against Americans’ right to vote in free elections.” Should he be charged with either, he can serve a maximum 20-year sentence.  

The Georgia case 

Due to Trump’s violation of Georgia’s RICO Act, he is facing accusations of participating in criminal conspiracies during the 2020 US Election. This charge will be extremely difficult to prove because it involves less evidence and allegations. Should Trump not be convicted of this charge, there are 12 other felony counts waiting for him, all of which have the potential of imprisonment.  

With everything added up, Trump could serve up to 717.5 years in prison. It remains to be seen, however, how many of these charges will stick and how Trump will weather the storm of one high-profile trial after another.

Could Donald Trump still become president if he is convicted? 

Yes he can. To run for president in the US, there are certain requirements needed. You must be a natural-born citizen of the United States, you must have been a resident of the United States for at least 14 years, and you must be at least 35 years old. There is no official law that states anyone who has committed a crime or is convicted of a crime can’t run for president. This can lead presidents to dismiss their own cases. Therefore, if Trump were to be convicted of his charges and win the election, he could dismiss his own state charges.
