How Donald Trump’s Fortune Fell $600 Million In One Year

By Dan Alexander and Matt Drange

A tough New York real estate market, a costly lawsuit and an expensive presidential campaign all contributed to the declining fortune of the 45th president. After months of digging through financial disclosures and public property records and conducting dozens of interviews, Forbes now estimates POTUS’ net worth at $3.1 billion, down from $3.7 billion a year ago. He drops to No. 248 in the ranks of the richest people in America, down from No. 156 in 2016.

The biggest hit was to Trump’s real estate portfolio, which is weighted heavily toward New York City. Values of several Manhattan properties, particularly those on or near Fifth Avenue, have dropped, shaving nearly $400 million off his fortune. Some of his golf properties, including ones in Miami, Ireland and Scotland, have also declined in value, as some would-be guests stayed away, apparently offended by the president’s politics and bombast. Trump’s cash pile is down an estimated $100 million since last year, after he spent $66 million on his campaign and $25 million settling a lawsuit over Trump University. As always, we refined our estimates based on new information uncovered during months of reporting.

Texas Needs Your Help


More rain is expected in Texas, praying for everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey which has devastated Texas beyond anything ever imagined.

 

Donating to Harvey relief efforts: How, when, what to give

 

Charities are stepping up their donation requests in the wake of Harvey, a severe, Category 4 hurricane that has devastated South Texas and could still lead to worse flooding in the days ahead.

But this is not an excuse to clean out your closet. Money is the quickest, most effective contribution most people can make during times of disaster, charities and philanthropy experts say. And donating directly through a website gets money to a charity faster than a text donation, even though the text might seem easier.

Here’s how to make sure you are giving in a way that matters the most.

GIVE TO ESTABLISHED RELIEF AGENCIES

GuideStar’s website has a database that lets you vet charities. You can find information on a charity’s expenses, assets, and revenue, as well as its programs.

Stacy Palmer, the editor of The Chronicle of Philanthropy, also suggests looking at a charity’s website for information on how it will use donations. And look through local news reports for information on a charity’s work, or contact the local United Way and the local Community Foundation — in this case Houston’s.

It’s up to you whether to go to a local charity that might know the area better, or a national charity that has a wider reach. Palmer says “both kinds of organizations have their place right now.”  Read on
