The Donald Trump Jr. net worth figure of $123 million is right on track for a Trump son or daughter. Donald Trump Sr.’s net worth of $5.18 billion is 43 times bigger than son Donald Jr.’s net worth. Donald Jr.’s net worth is 50% bigger than brother Eric Trump’s $80 million. That checks out, since Eric Trump started work for the Trump Organization in 2006, six years after Donald Junior. Sister Ivanka Trump began working for the organization in 2005, but her net worth independent of her husband is about the same as her older brother’s thanks to one important factor. Namely, Ivanka maintains her own luxury jewelry business on the side and has done so since 2007. She also worked successfully as a high fashion model starting in 1997.
Tiffany Trump and Barron Trump aren’t yet old enough to hold official positions with the Trump Organization, so the calculated net worth of each is considerably lower.
