Donald Trump Finally Releases The Personal Finance Details We've Been Waiting For
On Tuesday, Reuters broke news that presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump disclosed long-sought personal financial information. Reuters Business tweeted that according to financial disclosing from the campaign, Trump lists $557 million in annual income along with a net worth of more than $10 billion. Details regarding Trump's personal wealth has been a source of curiosity and speculation throughout his presidential campaign. Recently, the reality TV business mogul has been facing heat for not disclosing his tax returns, with critics on both sides of the aisle pushing for Trump to come clean.
According to pictures of documents shared by ABC News, Trump said "I filed my PFD [personal financial disclosure], which I am proud to say is the largest in the history of the FEC." He also, apparently, used the opportunity to knock Democratic presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, boasting: "Despite the fact that I am allowed extensions, I have again filed my report, which is 104 pages, on time. Bernie Sanders, has requested, on the other hand, an extension for his small report. This is the difference between a businessman and the all talk, no action politicians that have failed the American people for far too long." ABC News also shared documents that noted Trump's PFD revealed a "revenue increase of approximately $190 million dollars," which was used for, among other things, "the funding of construction projects at various multi-million dollar developments, reduction of debt and the funding of the campaign."
