Donald Trump was in Toronto yesterday giving a speech at the Learning Annex's Real Estate Wealth Expo. He was paid $1.5 million for his appearance.
About 30,000 came to hear Trump speak at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Trump came on stage to the theme song of The Apprentice.
He gave a speech about How to get rich right now!!!"
and admitted that the young women wearing tank tops with the word Fun
on them were a bit distracting.
He said in regards to Conrad Black, I'd just say hang tough. He's been through a lot. It's been a very, very trying time for him and I think he just has to hang tough," And he will, he will hang tough."
Trump does not know if he is going to be called as a witness at the Black trial but said if he is he will tell the truth because he is a truthful person.
Trump attended a surprise party for Black's wife at a New York restaurant in celebration of her birthday. Part of the expense of this party was charged to the company. Trump is expected to say he thought it a business affair.
He could not do a speech without making shots at Rosie again.
He called her fat and said she could cure her depression if she stopped looking in the mirror.
He said the fight between him and Rosie was a very important business lesson saying that "Get even. When somebody screws you, screw them back in spades. I really mean it," "You gotta hit people hard."
He told the audience that at least half were not cut out for the business. But said You really have to love what you are doing, so you don't give up,"
He is building a luxury tower and hotel in downtown Toronto.
