"Donald Trump" is the third official single from American rapper Mac Miller, and the only song released as an official single from his mixtape Best Day Ever. The music video to the song was uploaded to YouTube on March 3, 2011, while the single was released digitally on May 17, 2011. "Donald Trump" is also incorrectly included as a bonus track on the tracklist of some versions of Mac Miller's debut album Blue Slide Park. Miller himself confirmed that the song does not feature on the album.
The money-inspired hip-hop song refers to American business magnate Donald Trump, particularly Mac Miller's ambitions to become wealthy and successful like him ("Take over the world when I'm on my Donald Trump shit/Look at all this money, ain't that some shit?"). In August 2011, shortly after the music video to the song reached 20 million views on YouTube, Donald Trump himself praised the song and branded the young Pittsburgh rapper as "the next Eminem". Mac Miller responded appreciatively, but played down any comparisons between himself and Eminem.
The song samples the song "Vesuvius" by Sufjan Stevens.
