Rich men are less likely to like me, but the working man likes me because he knows I worked hard and didn't inherit what I've built. Hey, I made it myself; I have a right to do what I want with it.

While this is factually true I am still annoyed to read that statement.

His dad made him the president of their company when he was in his 20s. I would say that's pretty much inherited wealth.

If I am the millionaire son of a 1/3 of billionaire and I use that money to become a billionaire, could I claim that I got to where I am all by myself through hard work?

If someone tells me 5 of the 6 winning lottery ticket numbers and I buy 70 tickets with all the rest of the lottery numbers did I win the lottery all by myself?

That isn't factually true - he was worth $40m the day he was born via his father's inheritance plan. Goddamn, Voat.

He very carefully said:

didn't inherit what I've built.

That is what I was commenting on. I got quite a few downvoats for just saying anything even slightly critical of trump, even though I would most certainly vote for him over hillary. /shrug
