Forbes Does the Math: Donald Trump Is a Billion Dollars in Debt

President Donald Trump’s personal debts exceed one billion dollars – more than twice the amount he has claimed them to be – according to an analysis by Forbes of his assets and liabilities published on Friday.

“The loans are spread out over more than a dozen different assets—hotels, buildings, mansions and golf courses. Most are listed on the financial disclosure report Trump files annually with the federal government. Two, which add up to an estimated $447 million, are not,” writes Dan Alexander, a senior editor at Forbes who has covered Trump’s business practices over the last several decades.

“Some people also like to suggest that Deutsche Bank is the only institution willing to lend to Trump. That’s not true. The president’s creditors include at least six other institutions, two of which began or reworked deals while the president was in office,” Alexander explains.

“One reason for all the confusion: Trump’s loans are not fully transparent,” Alexander continues. “It’s still unclear to whom he owes an estimated $162 million against his skyscraper in San Francisco, for example. The loan against 1290 Avenue of the Americas is also something of a mystery. And it’s difficult to pin down the amount the president owes on a loan tied to his Bedford, New York, mansion. When asked about all of this, the Trump Organization did not respond.”

Alexander estimates Trump’s net worth to be roughly $2.5 billion, given the value of his assets ($3.66 billion) minus his liabilities ($1.16 billion).

The bottom line, as Alexander points out, is that the president “is not broke.”
