Trump Breaks Silence, Admits What Being President Has COST Him

He’s sacrificed more many presidents have before him…

President Donald Trump said on Monday that being president has cost him between $2 billion and $5 billion that he would have made if he had continued running his business instead of getting into politics.

But, he told reporters, “If I had it to do it again I would do it in an instant, because who cares, if you can afford it, what difference does it make?” There is no evidence that Trump lost billions since he became president. His net worth of $3.1 billion was unchanged from last year, Forbes Magazine said in March.

After Trump made a similar claim in August, Forbes wrote “Trump is not losing $3 billion to $5 billion. His income isn’t anywhere near $3 billion.”

While Trump’s personal fortune held steady over the past year, he vaulted higher on the Forbes list of the world’s richest people as dozens of his fellow tycoons suffered financial setbacks while his real estate holdings held their value better.

On Monday, Trump expressed annoyance at having to reverse his decision to stage the Group of Seven summit in June at his Trump National Doral golf resort in the Miami area.

His plan to have the event at Doral drew sharp criticism from both Republicans and Democrats who said it gave the impression that he was profiting from being president.

The president ran a string of resorts around the world before being elected president. His children have largely taken over running the family business, but he has not given up ownership.

“Whether I lost $2 billion, $5 billion or less, it doesn’t make any difference. I don’t care,” Trump said. “I’m doing this for the country. I’m doing it for the people.”

Trump had said he would have held the G7 summit at Doral without cost to U.S. taxpayers but will now look for other sites.

“I don’t think it’ll be as exciting or as good,” he said.

    Damn Democrats are always looking to screw the American Taxpayers And Our President! President Trump has already given up His salary to different Charities. What makes anyone think he’s trying to make money by donating one of this Florida Resorts to host the G7 Meeting. Dems are afraid that he might get a little more show of support from the Taxpayers (voters) for doing this. Democrats will pay a price at the polls in 2020 for all the hostilities towards the American People And Our President. WE WON’T FORGET!

    Forbes is a liberal Trump hater. So let’s get that clear from the top. Why should we believe anything he says? Vote Republican in 2020 or lose your freedom and your country.

    What are you people smoking? The Trumper is by far the worst President this country has had in many, many years. He makes Franklin Buchanan look like Lincoln. His most recent betrayal of the Kurds has damaged the country’s reputation – we can no longer be counted on. The picture of Kurdish people throwing garbage at the troops as they left is a highlight of Trumps’ leadership. In addition is his congenital lying, his caging of immigrant children in Texas, his willingness to open the national parks for drilling… the list continues to grow. The founders are rolling over. Where is the Hamilton we need? Impeachment cannot come soon enough. Even with that, it will take dedicated people and hard work to undo the mess he has created!

President Trump has done wonders for our country…..jobs are way up, economy just to say a few. He is trying to undo what obummer did to race relations!!!!! So you better take your blinders off before it’s too late for you. I will pray for you since you’re so uninformed.
