To prove that his net worth is more than double the $4 billion figure touted by Forbes, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump recently submitted a 92-page personal-financial-disclosure report to the Federal Election Commission.

The report — alleging that his net worth is in excess of $10 billion — was made public after a June document released by the real estate magnate’s campaign described his net worth as being approximately $8.7 billion. One thing is for certain, though: regardless of how many billions Trump has, he knows how to spread his fortune around.

Aside from running some of the best-known apartment buildings in the country, he also owns a personal portfolio of homes from Manhattan to Palm Beach, all of which are drenched in gold.

Donald Trump calls Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue “home” the majority of the time. Trump Tower is a 68-story skyscraper, and Trump sleeps in the penthouse.

When Trump gets tired of his cosseted New York abode, he hops on his $100 million Boeing 757 and jets to one of his other mansions.

When he’s not in the air, Trump motors around in his fleet of luxury cars. A longtime Rolls-Royce man, he also owns an electric blue 1997 Lamborghini Diablo and a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren from the mid ’00s.

In 1985, Trump bought the Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach for $10 million and turned it into a private club. The club sits on 17 acres of prime south Florida real estate.
