For the last few weeks, we have been reporting on Donald Trump, who found himself the target of liberal backlash after he criticized the U.S.’s relationship with Mexico during his campaign announcement.
While many didn’t take Trump seriously as a presidential candidate at the beginning, that all changed last week when polls revealed that Trump is currently the frontrunner in the race for the GOP nomination.
Since his presidential announcement, many of his haters have been eagerly waiting for him to reveal just how much he is really worth, since they believed he was lying about his immense wealth. On Wednesday, however, these naysayers got some bad news when Trump filed his personal financial disclosure, which revealed he is worth a whopping $10 billion.
According to Daily Mail, his campaign did not make the whole filing available, but they did say that “as of this date, Mr. Trump’s net worth is in excess of TEN BILLION DOLLARS.”
Not including dividends, interest, capital gains, rents and royalties, his campaign claimed that Trump made $362 million last year alone. This net-worth figure should put an end to accusations that Trump is inflating his wealth and is not taking the presidential race seriously.
“First people said I would never run, and I did,” Trump said Wednesday. “Then, they said, I would never file my statement of candidacy with the FEC, and I did. Next, they said I would never file my personal financial disclosure forms.”
‘I filed them early despite the fact that I am allowed two 45 days [sic] extensions,” he added.
This figure comes as a welcome relief after watching the Obamas freeload off our tax dollars for six years. If Trump makes it to the White House, we’ll never need to worry about him using our tax dollars to fund his lavish lifestyle, because he has more than enough money to do that himself!
