The uber-controversial Donald J. Trump was recently elected as the 45th President of the United States. During the lengthy and gruelling presidential campaign, many (including his opponent Hillary Clinton) have questioned his wealth and whether or not he is paying his dues to the taxman. Anyone keeping up with the election remembers that Trump was adamant about not disclosing his tax information – something that no other presidential candidate has done before him.
Despite the controversy surrounding his financial situation and several active audits, Trump managed to secure the presidency without actually disclosing his true net worth. While there are numerous websites including Forbes, Investopedia, and countless others, that claim to have calculated his net worth, it’s likely that only Trump himself knows just how much money he has.
We, however, are left speculating about his tremendous wealth, but judging by the widely varying estimates that are out there, it’s probably safe to say that his net worth is somewhere between $4-8 billion. Interestingly enough, Donald himself boasted about having more than $10 billion to his name, but that figure seems quite unlikely.
Regardless of what the actual number may be, Mr. Trump is on track to becoming the wealthiest president that the United States has ever had. That being said, it’s not really fair to compare a real estate mogul with rich family ties to an average politician that (at best) is making $100,000 per year.
Trump’s earnings are in a different echelon entirely, and his lifestyle is a great reflection of that. Aside from countless real estate properties all over the United States – including his massive, three-story penthouse at the Trump Tower in Manhattan – Donald Trump spends a significant amount of coin on transportation.
Obviously we’re not talking about bus passes or metro cards, but rather his very impressive collection of cars, airplanes, and more. If you’re interested in seeing what a billionaire real-estate-mogul-gone-politician has in his garage (or garages, really), hit next and let’s get the party started.
