Trump is about America and making it the best place on earth.

I disagree that it’s “all about Trump”. For example, how was this effort all about Trump?

Here’s a summary of the Wollman Rink effort detailed in his 1987 book “The Art of the Deal”:

After NYC spent $13 million dollars and 6 years trying to rebuild the ice rink, Trump looked at the mess and came in and offered to donate $3 million dollars to build the ice rink. He brought in experts from Toronto and did it the right way.

Results: Completed in 5 months. $750,000 under budget. He used the leftover money to renovate the adjacent skatehouse and restaurant. Earned $1.2 million in revenues the 1st season. He turned it into a profit center for the city (profits exceeded $500,000 the first year - all of it went to the Parks department and charity).

Maybe he did it for pride (that would be “all about Trump”), but he is America First and proud of it.
