He is the Main Man, Donald Trump. Pat O'Brien reports he found a young man armed with energy, vision, and a bank account worth billion. Donald Trump is not actually taking Manhattan, but he's making a pretty good stab at buying much of it. His real estate empire includes some of the city's most notable buildings, a luxury hotel and roughly 200 apartment complexes. He is worth less than one and a half billion dollars. Remarkable accomplishments for somebody who's only ran the family business for roughly four years. In fact, when Donald Trump's father handed him the keys to the business when he was 33 years old, someone said, "Are you worried?"" His dad said Everything that we touched in this city has in fact really worked out, and outside of this city has really worked out and against big odds. At the fashionable center of New York, the world's premier address, 5th Avenue and 57th Street is Trump Tower. Donald Trump will tell you he doesn't just build, he creates. 5th Avenue's most prestigious address these days is Trump Tower. A creation which holds the shopping area where if you have to ask the prices, you don't belong there and apartments that begin at a million dollars for a one -- bedroom, and up to 12 and a half million for the wide-room models. Residents include Johnny Carson, Steven Spielberg and Sophia Loren. This is a-40-story cooperative apartment has that we're building next to Greendale, right up from Bloomingdales. Up the street, other celebrities are buying at Trump Plaza. There's the Grand Hyatt Hotel coming up in Atlantic City, a hotel casino which will earn him $100 million a year. You look at his lifestyle and you have to ask why would a-37-year-old billionaire want to roll up his sleeves and do battle with the National Football League? It's something that's interesting and again in this case, it's not just buying. We are not just buying a team and we're going to throw draft choices, we're going to make it better and better. We're creating a team, but we are creating a whole league. Since he purchased the New Jersey Generals for about the cost of one of his deluxe apartments, he has created a lot of commotion. First, he went after a big name coach after he ain't done sure if they could to terms, he settled for a New York coach, Walt Michaels, formerly of the Jets. Benny brought Herschel Walker a quarter back, Brian Schaefering for the Cleveland Browns. From the 49ers, he signed Willie Harper and Bobby Leopold, two linebackers. The 49ers wouldn't talk about this transaction and the National Football League said no as well. Four men on the rush including Taylor [Inaudible]. Then there's the Lawrence Taylor situation. He signed a contract with Trump's Generals, but he's still under contract with the Giants, so his starting date with USFL wouldn't be for three season. There's been a lot of mystery about this deal and while Trump won't confirm the signing. He believes Taylor would get his team credibility. When Lawrence Taylor decides to sign a contract with the USFL, even if it's in 1987 or 1988 which is three or four years, that has tremendous credibility for the USFL and the NFL knows it, and they really do know it. Take our players and sign the futures. [Inaudible] That's a two-way street. Soon we may be compelled for our own preservation to go after some of the players as they are developing. It's not a good situation for either one. [Inaudible]? Well, I don't know. We're not at peace with the NFL, I guess, but were -- I don't know if you can classify this, we are in competition for their applause. They've done a good job over the years, they have done a great job in some cases over the years and we're certainly looking to compete with the NFL, and the answer is we are in the form of war right now with the NFL. There's no question about that. Before the USFL tossed its first coin, there was a lot of talk about warfare, whether the new league with go after underclassman. At the time, Chet Simmons, the Commissioner of USFL said, "No In the meantime, Simmons says, "If George Steinbrenner can do it People have said the [Inaudible] have USFL's George Steinbrenner. I don't think that's bad. I don't think that's bad at all. As long as the man is able to deliver on promises they may make. You don't make promises then people aren't going to expect anything. Don came out and said he was going to build a competitive winning team in this city and I think he's demonstrated that. Some other USFL owners don't like Trump's game plan. He's certainly helping himself and the New Jersey Generals. He's certainly going to create a first grade team and to the extent he does that, he will help the USFL. In terms of what it does to everybody else and all the other owners, it really stretches the budget Money doesn't necessarily buy you winners. Money can buy you the best players, but always the best players don't necessarily win. I don't think it makes sense to take a player from one league and pay him three times where he's worth to simply get him to come to another league. He's still the same player. One wonders, why bother? Why Trump just didn't go ahead buy an established franchise? While with his money, he could tell his friends he owns America's Team. In my opinion, only a loser can buy the Dallas Cowboys. The Dallas Cowboys have been so good, so long that the expectation level has been so high and will continue to be so high, but if the Dallas Cowboys become just a good team or above average team, the man who owns that team is going to be called a loser. There he is. The owner of a 6 and 12 team, but an owner who likes to create. He'll find credibility for his team in the USFL he says, "Even if he has to build it himself.""" We need the foundations. We have the locations, we have the foundations, we build them light, we build them on top. It's going to be the same thing with the team we watch. Pat O'Brien, CBS Sports.
