Fred Trump gave his son, Donald, the Manhattan District of New York in the 1970s and the money to get started. When he died in 1999, he was worth $300 million. Fred Trump was a frugal man who used to collect unused nails from his construction sites because he did not want to waste money. His only indulgence was the purchase of a new Cadillac every three years with the customized plate "FCT" for Fred Christ Trump.
The "Christ" moniker came from his mother, Elizabeth Christ, who got married to his father in 1902 in Germany.
