    Trump reports hundreds of millions in income

    Trump reports hundreds of millions in income

    Congress are suing President Trump
    President Trump reported hundreds of millions of dollars in income Friday in financial disclosure forms that shed more light on his vast business holdings.

    At his golf courses alone, Trump reported $288 million in income in the past year. That includes $19.8 million from his club in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he has spent some weekends as president.

    Trump reported $37.2 million in income in the past year from Mar-a-Lago, the private Florida resort where Trump hosted the president of China and ordered missile strikes against Syria. The club has doubled its membership fee in the past year.

    The Mar-a-Lago income figure was $7.4 million higher than on his previous financial disclosure filing, in May 2016.

    Trump reported $19.7 million in income through mid-April at his luxury Washington hotel, which has been a center of concerns about conflict of interest because of the possibility that foreign government can curry favor with the president by booking rooms there. The hotel opened in September.

    The president reported up to $7 million in book royalties, including $1 million to $5 million from his book "Great Again: How to Fix Our Crippled America." He reported nearly $11 million from the Miss Universe pageant and an $84,000 pension from the Screen Actors Guild.

    The form, released by the Office of Government Ethics, reflects the president's investments, other assets, income, retirement accounts and other holdings. It is different from a federal tax return, which Trump has refused to make public and which would reveal much more about his business entanglements.

    Trump last released information about his finances in May 2016, as a candidate. It showed Trump was worth at least $1 billion.

    Trump refused to sell his business holdings as president, as experts in government ethics urged him to do. Instead, he transferred them into a trust in his name. Any business profits will ultimately accrue to him when he leaves office.

    Trump Reports Hundreds of Millions in Financial Liabilities


    The U.S. Office of Government Ethics released President Donald Trump's most recent financial disclosure, and it shows that the former real estate mogul carries at least $315 million in liabilities ó $130 million to Deutsche Bank alone.

    The financial disclosure, a 98-page document, details how much money Trump has made, as well as what he's liable for, through April 15.

    The disclosure also shows that Trump earned nearly $20 million from his Washington, D.C. luxury hotel, the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C., which only opened in Sept. 2016.

    Since Trump won the election, the hotel has become a central symbol of the president's potential conflicts of interest, as some worry it is a route through which the Trump family could receive payments from foreign governments.

    Trump promised to donate all profits earned from foreign governments to the U.S. Treasury, but the Trump Organization admitted that it is not tracking all potential payments that are coming from foreign governments.

    Other notable elements of the disclosure include:

    • $7 million earned from book royalties, including "Art of the Deal," "Art of the Comeback" and other publications
    • $37.2 million earned from his private club Mar-a-Lago, located in Palm Beach, Florida
    • $19.7 million earned through golf related revenue from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey
    • $20.1 million earned though golf related revenue from his golf club in Jupiter, Florida
    • $14.4 million earned through golf related revenue from his golf course and resort in Turnberry, Scotland
    • $115.9 million earned from his golf course and resort, Trump National Doral Golf Club, in Miami, Florida
    • $84,000 earned from a Screen Actors Guild pension

    Trump last released his financial disclosure in May 2016. He has not, as of yet, released his tax returns.

    That is very small debt for the amount of property investments he has.

    From your first article there's a typo. His properties are worth $10 billion in 2016, not $1 billion. Check the link and you'll see. Journalists are so sloppy these days.

    Trump retains assets worth at least $1.4 billion, new disclosure shows

    President Trump reported on a new financial disclosure that his far-flung real estate and hotel assets are worth at least $1.4 billion, a stark illustration of the complex financial interests he has maintained in the White House.

    The report, which the president voluntarily filed with the Office of Government Ethics, shows that he collected an influx of new revenue from recent foreign deals and a surge of business at his signature Mar-a-Lago property in Florida.

    Trump has made his wealth a key element of his political brand, and his refusal to relinquish ownership of his company has spurred ethics complaints and legal challenges.

    As a candidate, he claimed he was worth more than $10 billion, although his net worth is impossible to determine from his financial disclosures and he has not provided independent evidence to back that up.

    The White House did not make any statements about his net worth when his filing was posted Friday by the ethics office.

    The report does not require officials to report their exact income, tax rate or charitable giving ó unlike a tax return, which the president has refused to release, breaking with past tradition.

    Trumpís 98-page disclosure shows he held onto the vast majority of his assets since his last disclosure in May 2016, when he reported his holdings were worth at least $1.5 billion.

    [Trumpís business booms as he runs for president, financial disclosures show]

    However, he did sell dozens of stocks he held in brokerage accounts, including shares in Amazon, Exxon Mobil, Goldman Sachs, Microsoft, Toyota and other companies. The stocks earned him millions of dollars in capital gains and dividends.

    The disclosure does not reveal when the investments were sold. However, a spokesman said in December that Trump had liquidated his entire stock portfolio in June 2016, around the time he began pouring millions into his presidential campaign.

    Since January, all of Trumpís business assets have been in a trust managed and controlled by his sons Donald Jr. and Eric, as well as longtime Trump Organization executive Allen Weisselberg. Documents released in April show that Trump is the beneficiary of the trust and is allowed to draw money from it at any time.

    Because the new disclosure includes a five-month period covered by his last report, it is difficult to precisely gauge whether revenue at Trumpís businesses has gone up or down.

    But the new report shows that his holdings generated nearly $600 million in gross revenue between January 2016 and mid-April of this year, with substantial sums coming from properties outside the United States and hotels that he has spotlighted as president.

    For the first time, Trump reported income from the Trump Tower in Kolkata, India, where he holds a licensing agreement with local developers. He said he received more than $100,001 from the deal.
    Likewise, his new hotel-and-condominium tower in Vancouver, British Columbia, which opened in February, was a new source of cash: Trump reported that he earned more than $5 million from the project, which was developed by the son of one Malaysiaís richest men.

    Trumpís luxury hotel near the White House, which held its grand opening in October, reported $19.6 million in hotel-related income.

    And revenue at Trumpís Palm Beach club, Mar-a-Lago, climbed to $37.2 million during the 15Ĺ month period covered by the report. In July 2015, he reported earning $15.6 million from the property in the previous 18Ĺ months.

    The president was not required to file a new financial disclosure with the Office of Government Ethics until next spring, but Trump decided to voluntarily submit an updated report in his first year in office, following the tradition of past presidents including Barack Obama and George W. Bush.

    The new filing shows that Trump had at least $310 million in liabilities spread across 16 loans as of May 31, most of them mortgages, an amount similar to what he reported in his prior financial disclosure.

    The liabilities probably are much larger because five of the debts were worth more than $50 million. Documents for those individual loans suggest Trump actually has a minimum of $500 million in debt.

    Trumpís refusal to divest his holdings before taking office have triggered a cascade of complaints related to the use of government resources to promote properties such as Mar-a-Lago, allegations that he is violating the Constitutionís foreign emoluments clause and questions about how he is being used to promote the Trump Organizationís projects abroad.

    Earlier this week, the Democratic attorneys general in Maryland and the District as well as nearly 200 Democratic members of Congress filed separate lawsuits alleging that payments to Trump businesses violated the Constitutionís anti-corruption clauses.

    Trumpís tax attorney, Sheri Dillon, told reporters in January that by setting up a trust he was taking ďall steps realistically possible to make it clear that he is not exploiting the office of the presidency for his personal benefit.Ē
    Trumpís disclosure reflected the apparent demise of the high-end skin-care line of his wife, Melania, which included anti-aging products made with caviar. The Melania Marks company is no longer listed as one of her assets.

    The first lady drew wide criticism earlier this year when she claimed in a libel lawsuit that a defamatory story in the Daily Mail had derailed her ďonce-in-a-lifetime opportunityĒ to launch a broad commercial brand and bring in multimillion-dollar business opportunities.

    Melania Trump
    previously reported between $15,001 and $50,000 in income from her accessories line. But during the past year, she listed no income from the brand.
