In a filing with the Federal Election Commission, Republican candidate Donald Trump says that despite some high profile troubles since he entered the GOP race, his bid for the White House has been good for business, as the real estate developer mocked the financial disclosure forms for candidates.
“This report was not designed for a man of Mr. Trump’s massive wealth,” Trump’s campaign said in a statement.
“For instance, they have boxes once a certain number is reached that simply state $50 million or more. Many of these boxes have been checked. As an example, if a building owned by Mr. Trump is worth $1.5 billion, the box checked is “$50,000,000 or more.””
Despite some high profile rejections of Trump by NBC, Univision and others, Trump said in his FEC filing that his “net worth has increased” in the month since he announced he was running for President.
“I look forward to the challenge of winning the presidency and doing a fantastic job for our country,” Trump said in his statement, vowing to spread the riches.
“I will make the United States rich and strong and respected again, but also a country with a ‘big heart’ toward the care of our people.”
