After September 2016, Trump Organization entities have begun to develop properties under the name Scion Hotels, which are priced lower and are marketed towards younger customers
The company’s background starts with Frederick Trump and Elizabeth Christ Trump, a German immigrant couple who moved to the borough of Queens in 1906. Frederick began developing real estate there. Donald Trump worked for his father’s business while attending the University of Pennsylvania, and in 1968 officially joined the company.
In the early 1970s, Donald was made president of the company, while Fred became chairman of the board. Around 1973, Donald began referring to the business, which had previously had no single formal name, as the Trump Organization.
