Donald Trump: I'm 'Not Really A Father Who Will Go To The Park'

Donald loves his five children immensely, but don’t look for him out in Central Park having a father-son catch!

Donald Trump takes an old-fashioned approach to fatherhood with his five kids. He’ll shower them with hugs and kisses, and even provide them with a job out of college. But after a few minutes of affection, he’s back on a business call and the kids are their mother’s (or the nanny’s) problem again.

“I’ll kiss him, tell him I love him, hug him. And then after four minutes, I go back to my phone call,” Donald told the women of The View on May 25. “I’m not really a father that will go to the park and play catch.”

Donald has five children with three different women. His first wife Ivana gave birth to Donald Jr., 34, Eric, 28, and Ivanka, 30. He had one child, Tiffany, 18, with his second wife, Marla Maples. His current wife Melania and he have one son, Barron, 6.

“I’m not a father that’s totally hands on,” Donald admitted.

No worries, Donald. You provide something every kid out of college is desperate for in this economy: a job!

“I’m a good father at 21,” Donald joked about providing all his adult children with jobs. “At 21, I’m the greatest of all fathers.”

Donald’s three oldest children sit at the boardroom table to co-host Celebrity Apprentice with their father.

And Donald’s final piece advice for all his children: “No drugs, no alcohol, no cigarettes.”

Now that’s something you can take to the bank!

What do you think about Donald’s parenting style? Is a few hugs and kisses and a guaranteed job offer enough for his children?
