In 1971 Trump was given control of his father's real estate company and renamed it The Trump Organization. Since then, he built a real estate and branding empire and according to Forbes, his 2015 estimated net worth is $4 billion. In the media, Trump is a two-time Emmy Award–nominated personality and has made appearances as a caricatured version of himself in television series and films.

Later the show became the "Celebrity Apprentice."
In June 2015, Trump formally announced his candidacy for president of the United States and has been running for the Republican nomination.
