Is a Puzzlement
Usually, when one's success is hinged to others, there usually is a "quid pro quo" involved. Trump provided a name for others to use, and got paid for it. If he developed a project on his own, he shortly sold it, but left his name on it, of course, for a price. But early in the game, how much was his name worth? Perhaps his earliest advisers dealt with him on the strength of his father's wealth and reputation. Certainly, I doubt if Trump, totally on his own, would have been a success. But he never was, I suspect, totally on his own. There were always "others," either advising him or using his name on their ventures. This is part of the puzzle.
