Before he became the Commander-in-Chief, Donald Trump made his first soap opera cameo in a 1992 appearance on ALL MY CHILDREN. When top model Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) left sleepy Pine Valley, PA to open the chi-chi New York City nightclub, Nexus, lots of bold-faced names dropped by. In All My Children: The Complete Family Scrapbook, Trump is quoted as saying: “Candidly, this is what I remember about my appearance on ALL MY CHILDREN. My driver pulled up at ABC, I dashed out of the car, and before I knew what happened, I was in the studio, standing in front of a camera and reading a line off a cue card. I shook hands with a few people, ran out the door, jumped back in my car, and I was gone. You have to remember, I’m a busy guy!”
