'I'm Really Rich': Donald Trump Reveals $9bn Fortune During Campaign Launch

Donald Trump, the billionaire real estate mogul, valued his fortune at $9bn as he officially entered the race for the White House. Publishing the most detailed summary of his financial worth in years, Trump said his portfolio of hotels, other properties and media assets, including Miss Universe, was worth over $8.7bn, once liabilities were removed. Giving a reckoning of finances is a requirement for presidential candidates, and after a series of dud runs for office, Trump’s move heralded a more serious bid for the nomination. Trump said, “I have total net worth of $8.73 billion. I’m not doing that to brag. I’m doing that to show that’s the kind of thinking or country needs.”
