What's with the Citroën / Peugeot symbols in the Trump University logo?
Is there a connection between Donald Trump and PSA - The parent company of Citroën and Peugeot?
When stereotypical male interests and money are mixed togerther, the result is almost always an exotic car or cars. Donald Trump happens to be of the male gender and he happens to have loads of money, and yes, The Donald likes his cars.
Exactly what cars he owns was a bit hard to determine in the admittedly small amount of research I did for this article.
But bear with this ole' Cynic for a moment, and I'll get to the Trump / Citroën relationship.
I recently had the privilege of being invited to a Citroën meetup in Clermont, Florida. This event is hosted by (and also serves as the birthday party for) a gentleman named André Garnier.
André Garnier is well known and revered in the Citroën community. André was a race car driver, Citroën mechanic, and was not only instrumental is getting Citroën into the United States originally, but was also involved with CXA (CX America), the company that originally imported one of my cars.
Despite his 91 years of age, André Garner gave a small speach at the Clermont event hosted in his name. During this speach, he told a story of Donald Trump landing in his Boeing 757, and requesting one of his personal cars. When the 757 pulled up to the ramp, a perfectly restored Citroën 2CV was waiting for him.
Now I have no idea if this story is true. As I said, I was unable to verify it with my quick web search.
I can tell you 2 things are true, however -- 1. If Donald Trump wanted a 2CV, he could afford one, and 2. Something provided the inspiration for that Trump University logo.
If you have information about the cars Donald Trump owns, or have information on the meaning of the Trump University logo, please post in this article's Google Plus conversation. Please keep political comments to political websites.
