“If you ask me exactly what the deals all add up to in the end, I’m not sure I have a very good answer.”


In his 1987 book, "The Art of the Deal," Trump discusses the reason why he loves making deals. He says that it is not for the money, because he has more than he will ever need. Instead, he says, making deals is his art form. He then writes, "If you ask me exactly what the deals I'm about to describe all add up to in the end, I’m not sure I have a very good answer." Followed by: "except that I've had a good time making them".
