| Character Information
Donald Trump is an American businessman.
When a yo-yo craze hit Springfield Elementary School, Bart proved to be very good at yo-yo tricks. Homer told Marge that soon he would be able to quit his job and "live off the boy", but Marge challenged him to name one person who had gotten rich by doing yo-yo tricks. After considering Donald Trump, Arnold Palmer and Bill Cosby, Homer realized to his chagrin that there wasn't any such person.
A homeless man at the Bumtown Soup Kitchen called Seymour Skinner Donald Trump, right after Edna Krabappel stood him up. When Lisa came to pick up Marge Simpson, Charles Heathbar said that he wanted to tell to his wife "you're fired!" When Marge and Lisa didn't laugh, he said that he had imitated Donald Trump and if they knew who he was, they would have laughed. Marge and Lisa then told him that they knew who he was, and he told them that he did not believe them as the joke was perfect.
Trump served as President of the United States, immediately preceding Lisa Simpson. While in office, Trump evidently made some bad financial decisions, leaving the Simpson administration with "quite a budget crunch".
Trump was at Trump Hotel where he tried to bribe Robert Mueller with $750 million. Mueller rejected the bribe and tried to arrest Trump so Trump tried to pardon himself. When that didn't work, he tried to bribe Mueller again with a judge position on Miss Universe. When that didn't work, Mueller left. A maid then entered the room to do housekeeping and Trump told her that there was no money and he was never there then left the room.
