Trump campaign sets his personal fortune at $10 billion
WASHINGTON - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has unveiled new documents setting his personal fortune at more than $10 billion.
The businessman says he filed his personal financial disclosure with federal regulators on Tuesday afternoon.
The figure makes Trump the wealthiest person ever to run for president, far surpassing previous magnates like Ross Perot, business heirs like Steve Forbes or private-equity investors like Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee.
Trump's campaign says the federal forms are "not designed for a man of Mr. Trump's massive wealth."
