Warren Buffett never went bankrupt either, or Sergey Brin or Larry Page or Mark Zuckerberg. And the poorest of one these people is between 4 and 40 times as rich as Donald Trump, depending on just how inflated Trump's claim of great wealth really is.
While I agree with your overall point, I would leave out Zuckerberg because his track record, while stellar, is too short. Just a matter of wanting to compare likes to likes here. (Of course, I expect some to misinterpret this as a defense of Trump.;)
