#TFPBirthdays: 10 Movies/TV Shows Donald Trump Appeared in Before Becoming President5 months ago by JoiAshanti Watkis in Movie News, TV News
Donald Trump isn’t an Academy Award-winning actor, but he’s good at playing himself. Before televised Presidential debates and The Apprentice, Trump made quite a few cameos in different movies and television shows.
His first film appearance was in “Ghosts Can’t Do It” (1989), as per his IMDb. Although a full-blown acting career didn’t flourish from this role, Donald became a pop culture phenomenon. He guest starred in shows like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The Nanny, and Sex and the City.
Trump is the second President to have acting credits prior to his election. Former two-term President, Ronald Reagan, was known for being an actor-turned-politician. He has at least 80 acting credits listed on his IMDb.
