Net worth: $4.5 billion.

The richest candidate and frontrunner for the Republican nomination. Donald Trump’s true net worth has come into questions.

“Bloomberg puts Trump’s current net worth at $2.9 billion, Forbes at $4.1 billion. The National Journal has worked out that if Trump had just put his father’s money in a mutual fund that tracked the S&P 500 and spent his career finger-painting, he’d have $8 billion.”

Only the outsiders of Trump’s actual finances can estimate how much he’s truly worth. Back in 1982, when Trump was running his father’s firm his estimated worth was $200 million, still light years away from any of his opponents.

So far, Donald Trump has thrown down over $651,731 on his “Make America Great Again” hats. He’s spent $1.8 million on merchandise alone.

Donald Trump raised $19.4 million in super PACs in 2015.
