Donald Trump is one of the most famous people in America, in part because he’s constantly reinventing himself. A New York real estate mogul, he became a tabloid celebrity for his flamboyant personal life, turned his name into a brand for everything from steaks to vodka to casinos, then became a reality TV star and a politician. Despite his years in the New York media spotlight, Trump’s time as the Republican presidential nominee has brought his entire life under scrutiny. TIME went through the archives to find rare photos from throughout his life and career.
