Trump’s claim he’s worth more than $10 billion is a fraud. Bloomberg reports a paltry $2.9 billion.
When Donald Trump was running for president, absent any government experience, one of the arguments he liked to make for his candidacy was that he is very rich. “I’ve made billions of billions of dollars,” he said in his opening statement during a G.O.P. debate. “I made a lot of money in Atlantic City,” he tweeted last summer, despite his casinos declaring bankruptcy. “I have tremendous income,” he said during a debate with Hillary Clinton, though he has refused to release his tax returns.
“And the reason I say that is not a braggadocious way. It’s because it’s about time that this country had somebody running it that has an idea about money.”
