Life has not been easy for Donald Trump.
He wants you to know this. He also just gave his opponents the most perfect political attack ad ever created.
During an interview on the Today Show, the billionaire and Republican presidential frontrunner lamented at how difficult building his business had been.
"It has not been easy for me," he said. "I started off in Brooklyn. My father gave me a small loan of $1 million, and I came into Manhattan."
Just a small loan of $1 million. How can anyone expect to succeed with such a small loan?!
But Trump persevered, you see.
