We skip to his preteen years where he runs around Manhattan with his friend singing the Jets' song from West Side Story and doing boyish things.

He gets shipped off to New York Military Academy where he becomes incredibly popular. He graduates and starts working for his father.

He watches the unveiling of a new bridge and notices no one gives any recognition at all to the man who built it. From this moment on he decides he will do everything in his power to be remembered and recognized. He refuses to be a footnote in history.

He collects rent in Trump village and works for his father for the next couple of years in his low income housing projects. He avoids getting drafted into the war...
