The presumptive Republican nominee said he filed new documents
Trump has consistently declined to release his tax returns
Donald Trump says he is still really rich.
The presumptive Republican nominee said Tuesday that he had filed a new document showing his revenue had increased by about $190 million and that his net worth now eclipsed $10 billion. Trump, who made fortunes in New York real estate before entering politics, said his income on his new personal financial disclosure form exceeded $557 million.
Trump has consistently declined to release his tax returns, which would offer a fuller portrait of exactly how much money the billionaire has earned. Trump’s disclosure form, which he said in a statement to reporters that he filed on Monday, has not yet been released by the Federal Election Commission, and his campaign declined to release a copy of it to CNN on Tuesday.
“I filed my PFD, which I am proud to say is the largest in the history of the FEC,” Trump said in a statement, noting that Bernie Sanders, a far poorer presidential aspirant, had requested an extension for his form. “This is the difference between a businessman and the all talk, no action politicians that have failed the American people for far too long.”
Trump declared at least $1.4 billion in assets on last July’s report, and $265 million in liabilities. That report, 12 pages shorter than this year’s enormous 104-page tome, included 515 different organizations where Trump has held a position.
