London, England (CNN) -- Real estate tycoon and multi-billionaire Donald Trump says that he was born with the right set of genes that enabled him to have fame and fortune.
"Well I think I was born with the drive for success because I have a certain gene, Trump told CNN's Becky Anderson
"I'm a gene believer... hey when you connect two race horses you get usually end up with a fast horse," he said during the Connect the World interview.
"I had a good gene pool from the stand point of that so I was pretty much driven."
Trump is currently worth an estimated $2 billion according to Forbes magazine.
Much of his success came in New York City's real estate market, but he has also been the star of a TV series called "The Apprentice" where he is paid a reported $3 million per episode.
During the interview, Trump -- whose personal life is regularly picked over in the pages of gossip magazines -- admitted finding it easier to manage his business than manage his home.
"The way I run my business seems to be easier than the way I run my life," Trump said.
"But I think all the time that I just don't want people to always just agree with me".
At the end of the interview, Trump called Anderson a terrible interviewer and went on to 'fire' her from the show.
"Becky, you do a terrible job," Trump said.
"You're a lousy interviewer, that was the worst interview I ever had, you are fired!"
Thankfully for Anderson, it was a joke.
