The Collected Diaries of Donald J. Trump, Chapter 8: “The Ascent to Power”

Dear Kitty:
As you know, I decided many weeks ago that from the standpoint of my father and I, the best way for me to let him know that I am not a little boy anymore was, very casual-like, to start calling him “Fred,” like a big boy and not a baby, because I really am not a baby, Kitty, and you and I know that whatever the other boys may call me it reflects a lot more on them than it does on me. The 8th grade is a very important grade — maybe the most important grade of all!!! — and I thought it would be a good idea for me and Fred to start seeing things from a more man-to-man type deal.
