    From the New York site: 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.

    The cover of this week’s New Yorker hits on exactly what Donald Trump is doing in the Republican presidential primary: making waves.

    The New Yorker explains that the Barry Blitt-drawn cover — titled “Belly Flop” — is a reference to Trump’s brazen style and impact on the 2016 presidential field. “Donald Trump has entered the fray of Republican Presidential candidates with all the grace of a bully doing cannonballs and belly flops at the local swimming pool,” Blitt said, according to the New Yorker.

    “Trump never fails to provide hours of slack-jawed amazement,” Blitt said.

    Though few analysts believe that he actually has a shot at clinching the nomination, Trump’s entry into the field has shaken up the race over the past month. [more]
