Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, author, politician, and the Republican Party nominee for President of the United States in the 2016 election. He is chairman of The Trump Organization, which is the principal holding company for his real estate ventures and other business interests.
Trump has claimed that his net worth is over ten billion dollars, whereas in 2015 Forbes estimated his net worth at 4.5 billion, and Bloomberg estimated it at 2.9 billion, with the discrepancies due in part to the uncertainty of appraised property values. Bloomberg raised its estimate of Trump’s net worth to $3.0 billion in 2016, while noting that Trump carries at least $605 million in publicly-disclosed mortgages and debt. These estimates would make Trump one of the richest politicians in American history. As of March 2016, Forbes had him listed at #336 on its list of the world’s most wealthy.
Trump received a plurality of the votes in the primary elections and placed first in a majority of states, culminating with a victory in Indiana in May 2016, whereupon his remaining Republican rivals suspended their campaigns, and Republican chairman Reince Priebus declared him to be the party’s presumptive nominee. Three weeks later, Trump had gained the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the nomination, and in July he was formally nominated at the 2016 Republican National Convention. If elected, Trump would become the oldest person to become President in American history at 70 years, 220 days old.
