However, a Forbes report claimed that the real estate tycoon’s net worth is nearly $3.7 billion.

Trump refused to publicize his tax returns so his accurate financial situation is unclear.

Trump is more than twice as rich as George Washington, the first president of the U.S. Washington estimated net worth would be around $525 million in today’s dollars.
