Michael Booker with a signed copy of Donald Trump's book, "The Art Of The Deal".
For the record, this is not an opinion article but an insight into what kind of person the new president of the United States is, what makes him tick and how he operates. It comes from a person who worked with him for the best part of a decade in the late '80s to mid '90s. And that person is Michael Booker. The current Immediate Past President of ESRA, he is a former three-time European medallist (silver in 1955 and 1956, bronze in 1957) and a six-time British national champion ice skater who was placed sixth at the 1956 Winter Olympics and fifth at the 1956 World Championships. He is also an extremely successful businessman in the United States, where he still owns a home in Texas.
