Donald Trump gave his grade-school music teacher a black eye, according to a new biography, Never Enough.
Pulitzer-winning author Michael D'Antonio told INSIDE EDITION that even as a kid Trump had a big personality. He explained the story behind the black eye.
“The story was an eraser thrown at the wrong time," he said. "He was a kid who was a handful."
D'Antonio says Trump inherited his fighting spirit from his wealthy father, Fred.
“His father told him ‘Be a killer. Be a killer. Be a king. You're supposed to dominate. You're supposed to be in charge.’ This guy has the impulses of a monarch,” he said.
Trump's father sent him to a military school to straighten him out and he excelled but he never lost his mischievous streak.
“He's a showman," the author said. "He's astounding to watch. You tune in just to see what this guy is going to do. Part of Donald’s charm, even at 69, he has a boyish impish quality to him. He is like that kid who always wants attention good or bad he'll take it. He has that magic, he gets attention."
Trump initially co-operated with D'Antonio by granting him five interviews. But D'Antonio said the billionaire later cut him off after he interviewed a man Trump deemed to be an enemy.
The author claims: “He had an assistant call me and said, ‘Did you talk to so and so? You talked to him and now you can’t talk to us.'"
Trump is also reportedly not happy with the title of the book.
“I got a call from one of his lawyers. He said ‘You got a problem.’ The problem is the title, they didn’t like the title,” D’Antonio said.
“They wanted it to be all-American. I finally said, 'is there never enough for this guy?' and he laughed and said: ‘You're right, there really is never enough,’” he said.
