Trump's Finances Are Now Public
Donald Trump’s financial disclosure filing with the Federal Election Commission is now public. A campaign release from when he filed his massive 92-page disclosure touted Trump’s net worth of more than $10 billion dollars. “This report was not designed for a man of Mr. Trump's massive wealth," the statement said, noting that many of the boxes max out at “$50,000,000 or more,” which doesn’t allow Trump to give a more accurate reflection of his worth. The statement announces his net worth as being “in excess of TEN BILLION DOLLARS.” The real estate magnate turned presidential candidate has touted his immense wealth from the start. Many had assumed that Trump would not actually file the documents because they would force him to air his complex web of financial dealings. Various reports have put the low-end estimate of Trump's wealth at about $1.5 billion. But his wealth is likely significantly higher thanks to those limitations in the FEC filings.According to the filing, Trump holds 515 positions on corporate boards of directors.
