Trump retains assets worth at least $1.4 billion, new disclosure shows – The Washington Post

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-retains-assets-worth-at-least-14-billion-new-disclosure-shows/2017/06/16/c0bc4caa-52b9-11e7-be25-3a519335381c_story.html?utm_term=.2ab9526f46c2

Trump’s business assets have been in a trust managed and controlled by his sons Donald Jr. and Eric, as well as longtime Trump Organization executive Allen Weisselberg. Documents released in April show that Trump is the beneficiary of the trust and is allowed to draw money from it at any time.

Because the new disclosure includes a four-and-a-half-month period covered by his last report, it is difficult to precisely gauge whether revenue at Trump’s businesses has gone up or down. But the new report shows that his holdings generated nearly $600 million in gross revenue between January 2016 and mid-April of this year, with substantial sums coming from properties outside the United States and hotels that he has spotlighted as president.
