You all know him. Donald Trump. Ruthless entrepreneur, billionaire, and now even maybe a presidential candidate for Republican Party. What’s his real wealth? In 2015, Donald Trump’s net worth was estimated to be $4.1 billion. That’s right. And yet he knows hard times. He declared corporate bankruptcy twice. In 1991 and 2004. Both times he returned richer than ever.
He’s known for his lavish lifestyle. Since his main business is in real estate development, we shouldn’t be surprised that he owns several luxury real estates around the US. His New York City penthouse sitting on the top of one of his skyscrapers has doors decorated by gold and diamonds. Another of his famous luxury homes is Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. He bought it in 1985 for $10 million. Trump also owns suburban mansion in Bedford, New York. And the list goes on and on.
We could talk forever about Donald’s expensive houses and other possessions. But how he earned his astronomical net worth? Trump was born into a family of real estate developer and millionaire but likes to highlight that he didn’t receive any financial gift from his father and perceives himself as a self-made man. That’s truth, however Donald had great start thanks to his family name, know-how, and also good genes. It still took a life of hard work to get where he did.
