Dr. Donald Trump Offers a Political Prognosis Different From His Namesake's

The Virginia doctor lives in a one-story house and drives a Subaru.

— -- While Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump lives in a three-story penthouse apartment in Manhattan, Dr. Donald Trump lives in a one-story house in Oakton, Virginia.

Dr. Trump drives a Subaru to work in nearby Fairfax, where he serves as the director of the Inova Schar Cancer Institute.

A bit younger than the 70-year-old candidate, Dr. Trump, 68, has endured comparisons to the real estate developer and TV show personality for much of his adult life.

“I have dealt with the smiles and the chuckles and the, ‘Oh, you’re really not Donald Trump’ for a long time, but it’s obviously gotten more intense in the last year," he said.

They are not related.

Dr. Trump pursued a career in medicine specializing in genitourinary cancers (the urinary and male genital tract) and now runs a prestigious not-for-profit cancer research center. In that executive-level position, Dr. Trump also had to fire some employees.

“It’s the hardest thing I’ve done,” Dr. Trump said.

Not only do the two Trumps diverge professionally, they also have different political views.

“I believe the country is doing better than the Republicans contend that it is,” Dr. Trump said. “I think that Bernie Sanders’ influence on the Democratic Party is positive, and I’m cautiously optimistic that Hillary Clinton will succeed Barack Obama."
