Donald Trump is brash and blunt, and those who don’t particularly like the Republican presidential frontrunner focus on highlighting his seemingly abrasive personality. However, a report in The Guardian earlier this week contains a touching story about Trump that reveals an extremely sensitive side of the billionaire.
Oliver Laughland reports that Justin Goldberg was a project manager on 40 Wall Street, the art deco New York skyscraper bought by Trump in 1995, and was given a job in the Trump Organization through his father, Jay Goldberg, Trump’s long-serving and trusted attorney. He recalled one awkward moment away from work sometime in the mid-nineties.
Trump had slept over at the family’s residence in upstate New York, and Goldberg’s mother prepared breakfast for him in the morning and mistakenly poured salt instead of sugar all over their guest’s cornflakes. Trump, trying to mind his manners, ate the whole salty, soggy breakfast. He didn’t want to make Mrs. Goldberg feel bad.
“I thought that was pretty impressive,” said Goldberg.
