...their vision and dreams real!
Donald Trump
Trump, Donald John (b.1946), is an American business executive. After attending the Wharton business school, he joined the family real estate business. A self-promoting and flamboyant dealmaker, he was able to secure loans with minimal collateral in the free-wheeling 1980s and created an empire in real estate, casinos, sports, and transportation. By 1990, however, the effects of recession had left him unable to meet loan payments. Although he shored up his businesses with additional loans and postponed interest payments, mounting debt brought Trump to business bankruptcy and the brink of personal bankruptcy.

Banks and bondholders lost hundreds of millions of dollars but opted to restructure his debt to avoid risking losing even more in a court fight. By 1994, Trump had eliminated a huge portion of his $900 million personal debt and reduced substantially his nearly $3.5 billion in business debt. Forced to relinquish the Trump Shuttle (bought in 1989), he retained Trump Tower in New York City and control of his three casinos in Atlantic City. In 1999, Trump toyed with running for president on the Reform party ticket. Crippling debt payments forced his casinos into bankruptcy again in 2004, and Trump's stake in the company was greatly reduced when it emerged from bankruptcy in 2005. Widely known as simply "the Donald," Trump stars in his own reality television show, which debuted in 2004.

Dear Mr. Trump I have been working for eight years to develop a luxury residential, beach and golf resort community on the south coast of Jamaica. I have been working with the Jamaican government, who are impressed with the concept. The Commissioner of Land has now granted me permission to begin showing the estates to investors/developers. I partially grew up around the area. When my father was a fisherman, he had built a hut not far from the beach. This is where I would spend time with him on the weekends and holidays. The area is remarkable for its beautiful white sand beach, 40,000 plus acres of undeveloped land, and impressive caves, which are the most beautiful in the Caribbean. Very important, due to a recent change in government, I believe that we can introduce the very first casino on the island. In terms of air transportation; the government has now decided adding Vernamfield Airstrip, the project should begin in September of this year. This airstrip is about 15 miles away from the proposed area. This Airstrip was used as a US Naval Base during World War II. The strip was shut down years ago because it was used to airlift marijuana. I personally visited the site on 06/22/08 and it had piles of rubbish to prevent airplanes from landing. The next closest airport is about 1.5 hours away, which is similar to the distance of the Negril resorts from the Montego Bay airport. There is a well in the area, which indicates that a sufficient water supply could be established. I am looking to partner with developers and investors who can realize this beautiful beach and golf resort in a land of incredible natural beauty. I look forward to speaking with you.
