Donald Trump was originally slated to be the owner of the USFL's New York franchise, but backed out due to concerns he might be spreading himself too thin. 
At the time Trump was nearing completion on his signature real estate deal, the construction of Trump Tower in New York City. 
After Trump Tower was constructed and leasing, Trump felt his time had freed up sufficiently to give some of his focus to football, buying the Generals from J. Walter Duncan.
Though Trump would vehemently claim he paid far less, he bought the Gens from Duncan for $ 9 million - three million more than he would have paid for the team back in 1983.
