trump's net worth
trump's net worth is hard to pin down. it depends on who's asking and who's answering. cause a big chunk of his net worth is the trump brand. which to him is worth $3b or more. depending on how he's feeling at the time. i'm paraphrasing his words here. i'm sure the trump brand would be very valuable to me. but i'm also pretty sure it wouldn't be worth $3b to me. course $1b is outside my world experience. so maybe.
anywho, trump's net worth doesn't seem to have changed much over the past 20 years. the trump haters said it's in the $300m range then. they say the same thing now too. the trump lickers said it was $3b then. they say the same thing now too. which is kinda odd for a self proclaimed genius businessman.
let's see how his wealth gains compare to other genius businessmen over the same period. bill gates went from $14b to $60b. warren buffett went from $17b to $66b. and he famously gave away $30b. liliane bettencourt went from $4b to $40b. so factor of 4 to 10. depending on how much you gave away.
the cold hard facts suggest trump's claim to being a genius businessman, like his net worth, are somewhat exaggerated.
