Donald Trump has always been associated with money. Despite the fact that he consistently lies about how much he is actually worth, no one would argue that the association to the Republican Presidential Candidate is valid. We’ve put together a list of photos that demonstrate his lavish spending habits.
Trump’s yacht, truly a testament to the ignorant and arrogant spending of this presidential candidate. Trump was forced to sell this 282 foot mini cruise ship to pay back creditors.
Honestly it wouldn’t make sense for Trump to fly publicly considering the amount of hate directed toward him and the amount of money he has. But custom designing a paint job for your private jet is the epitome of unnecessary spending.
As if it wasn’t enough to buy a brand new jet plane and customize the outside, Trump felt the need to include gold customization of the interior. 24 Karat gold seat belt buckles and sinks high-lite the unnecessary spending put into his air palace.
Trump’s “main base” or home, Trump Tower is an excellent demonstration of his abundant wealth. Him, his wife and youngest son live on the top floor in the penthouse sweet. Of course the interior is lavish and tacky with as much gold as possible. If elected president moving into the White House would be a downgrade for him.
Rolls-Royce collection highlights his fancy and lavish car collection. Trump has two, one recent model valued at $500,000, and one from the 50’s that is practically priceless. Only 18 were ever made and they were given to the richest of the rich.
Trump’s campaign has already cost him millions out of his personal account. It’s estimated that he has spent north of $20 million, while also receiving $7 million in private donations.
He bought the entire Mar-a-Lago Estate in Palm Beach in 1985. Trump made this 58 bedroom, 33 bathroom, 12 fireplace, and 3 bomb shelter facility his home for the next 10 years. Now he rents it out as a private club, its current value is much above the 10 million that he spent to acquire it.
Right in line with his self obsessed personality Trump created his own board game. I’ve never played but it is available on amazon if you’re curious and want to give it a shot!
He bought his own brand of high end Steaks. Trump steaks, another “brilliant” investment went on the market a few years ago. Marketed as “The Worlds Greatest Steaks”, they don’t quite get that review. Plus Trump likes his steak well done, which I’m pretty sure is the same way the devil and Hitler prefer their steak.
The Trump Helicopter collection, well he only has two but seriously who needs two helicopters? After purchasing his first he decided to spend $750,000 to renovate the inside. Seating 12 this helicopter is worth roughly $7 million.
Trump brand Wine. Although Trump decided not to drink after his brother died young from alcoholism, he still got his greedy fingers into the wine market. Despite not drinking and in general getting terrible reviews, Trumps wine actually reviews pretty well. He bought the vineyard in Virginia for $3.6 million.
Remember when Orange County Chopper was popular or a thing at all? Trump had 24-karat gold motorcycle custom built by them. Nothing more than a collectable as no one would risk operating a complete gold motorcycle (and I doubt Trump can drive one anyways).
Nothing says you’re rich more than owning multiple golf courses. His courses however have turned into a great investment as he profits about $200 million each year from owning them and they are estimated to be worth about $1.57 billion.
In perfect slime-bag form Trump found a way to screw over young investors and college students with his project Trump University. This three day conference was supposed to give the secrets to investing and provide a leg up in life for the student who paid thousands to be there. But rather it gave them an opportunity to spend more money as other programs were offered for a higher price. Currently there are several suites against Trump University.
This is a quote from one case made against the conference: “When student’s reached Trump University’s three day seminar, they learned that the contrary to what they had been promised at the free seminars, they were not going to learn everything they needed to know about investing. Instead they were told they had to purchase additional programs to get the help they would supposedly need- and that they would fail at Trump University.”
Three wives. You know a man has money when he can afford to get married and divorced multiple times. His current wife Milania is a supermodel and according to Trump they have never got into one fight. Just give it another 10 years when a newer prettier model comes out, he’ll move on.
Five Children you don’t have to rich to have five children, but you probably are rich or a piece if you have five children with three different women. Trump’s kids support him heavily during his campaign, but not all of them were registered to vote in time for the New York primaries. Creepy side note on his daughter Ivanka, Trump was once quoted on air saying, “If she weren’t my daughter I’d be dating her.”
The Apprentice was basically a show about how rich Trump is. Surprisingly successful, the show lasted 14 Seasons. This is where Trump really became a house hold name, from a show he produced himself about how rich and better than people he is.
