Never a dull moment with the Donald.

Real estate mogul Donald Trump is expected to declare roughly $9 billion in assets and announce his candidacy for president Tuesday, according to the Washington Post. The billionaire is planning to release a two-page document that outlines his portfolio of hotels and other properties, hundreds of millions in cash-on-hand and his debts, the newspaper reported.

Trump, 69, would be the wealthiest Republican candidate if he runs for president in 2016. Forbes estimated his net holdings at $4.1 billion, according to the newspaper.

In a recent interview with the Des Moines Register, Trump pronounced himself the “most successful person ever to run for president.”
