Donald Trump was not always the untouchably successful mogul he is today. In 1990 Trump was on the verge of bankrupctcy and total collapse, and stood to lose $9 billion. Below is an exclusive clip for CNBC's Wednesday night premiere of CNBC Titans: Donald Trump.

In the clip, experts (and Trump himself) discuss how the collapse of the real estate market in 1990 left Trump and his investors reeling, on the brink of disaster. But somehow (mostly on marketing his name alone) he managed to get it all back.

The show airs on CNBC on Wednesday, November 17, at 9pm .
