US President Donald Trump’s memoirs reveal his deepest thoughts about women and relationships.


The businessman-turned-politician is not one to shy from disclosing his trysts.

"I began to realize that women are far stronger than men. Their sex drive makes us look like babies."


In his book “Trump: Surviving at the Top,” he wrote:

“I was especially carefree [in the early-mid 1970s]… I didn’t drink or take drugs; as far as stimulants go, I’ve yet to have my first cup of coffee. But I was out four or five nights a week, usually with a different woman each time, and I was enjoying myself immensely.”  

On relationships, Trump admitted that he couldn’t help but compare women with his own mother, Mary Trump, whom he described “smart as hell.” He admitted that it was “part of the problem I’ve had with women.”


He also admitted that good looks had been his top priority in choosing women before, but felt lucky when she met his first wife, Ivana, whom he described “gorgeous, but…also ambitious and intelligent.”

He wrote:

“I suppose I was a little naive, and perhaps, like a lot of men, I had been taught by Hollywood that one woman couldn’t have both.”

Trump also explained his view of women. In “Trump: The Art of Comeback,” he wrote:

“As I grew older and witnessed life firsthand from a front-row seat at the great clubs, social events, and parties of the world — I have seen just about everything — I began to realize that women are far stronger than men. Their sex drive makes us look like babies. Some women try to portray themselves as being of the weaker sex, but don’t believe it for a minute.”  

He also maintained that he has a high regard for women.

In “Trump: Surviving at the Top," he wrote:

“I’m not a crusader for feminism, and I’m not against it, either. I’m just oblivious to a person’s gender when it comes to hiring people and handing out assignments."

He also wrote (in “Trump: The Art of the Deal”):

“It’s funny. My own mother was a housewife all her life. And yet it’s turned out that I’ve hired a lot of women for top jobs, and they’ve been among my best people. Often, in fact, they are far more effective than the men around them.”



Trump’s mother was born in 1912 as Mary Anne MacLeod. He lived a poor life in the outskirts of Stornoway, Scotland, before migrating to America in 1930.

Trump’s third and current wife, Melania, has the same beginning as his mother. An immigrant from Slovenia, Melania’s family survive on factory work.

She grew up to become a model, moving to the US in 1996. She met Donald Trump in September 1998 during a party at a Times Square nightclub.
