Trump Net Worth: Family, Fame and Influence

The Trump net worth sum for the entire family comes to $5.69 billion, with most of that held by patriarch and U.S. President elect Donald Trump. The senior Trump controls a fortune estimated at $5.18 billion, with more than half a billion controlled by his children and in-laws. Trump’s wife Melania currently has a net worth of $10 million independent of her billionaire husband, though in the event of a divorce that number could go much higher. The family member with the highest net worth other than Donald Sr. is actually in-law Jared Kushner with a $181 million fortune from his own real estate investing business.

Next in line are son Donald Trump Jr. with $123 million and daughter Ivanka Trump with $121 million. Son Eric Trump has an estimated net worth of $77 million, while 23 year-old Tiffany Trump has a net worth of $600,000. Ten year-old Barron Trump has a net worth estimated at $100,000.

Donald Trump Net Worth: $5.18 Billion

The Donald Trump net worth figure of $5.18 billion is far and away the biggest portion of the Trump wealth pie. Trump holds 90% of the wealth of the entire family and has 27 times more money than any one other family member. On the list of the world’s richest people, Trump comes in at #262.

Donald Trump inherited nearly $60 million from his father, real estate developer Fred Trump. When the elder Trump died in 1999, his $300 million estate was divided equally among his five children. Donald Trump has grown that inheritance to nearly 87 times its original size in 17 years. Whatever anyone thinks of Trump’s rhetoric, values and politics, to claim that he is not a good businessman ignores the facts. Even at a high 10% annual rate of return, an initial investment of $60 million would be worth only $161 million in 17 years.  In fact Trump has grown his fortune at the equivalent of a 95% annual rate of return. He is indisputably an adept businessman.

The Real Estate King

Anyone wondering where the Trump net worth story gets its power need look no further than real estate. Trump owns no less than 60 hotels, golf resorts, casinos and other commercial properties worth in excess of $1 million to $600 million each. He holds over $150 million in stocks, bonds and other investments. He carries from $500 million to $1 billion in debt. Subtracting his debts from his assets gives a final net worth of $5.18 billion. Trump has claimed that he’s worth considerably more, but most of that claim is based on his own $3 billion estimate for the wealth of his brand. For the purpose of this article we’ve only counted tangible assets.

Jared Kushner Net Worth: $181 Million

Coming in at a solid second place on the Trump net worth list is son-in-law Jared Kushner, real estate investor and husband of Trump daughter Ivanka Trump. Kushner has earned a total of $352 million over the course of his career. In 2007 at the young age of 26, he closed the single biggest real-estate deal in history, laying out $1.8 billion in investor money to buy 666 5th Avenue. The bursting of the real estate bubble only a year later however forced him to sell that property again at a significant loss.

Kushner also purchased a three-building apartment housing property in Maryland for $38 million in 2014. In the same year he bought more than 11,000 rental units across the northeast. One year later he spent $295 million for a 51% interest in the Times Square Building in New York. He also runs an online paper called The New York Observer and ran Donald Trump’s digital media campaign.

Donald Trump Jr. Net Worth: $123 Million

The Donald Trump Jr. net worth figure of $123 million comes almost entirely from his 16 year career at the Trump Organization. Donald Jr. began working for the family business in 2006. He now shares the title of Executive VP of Development & Acquisitions with his two siblings, Ivanka and Eric. In that position, Trump Jr. earns an estimated salary of nearly $12 million per year.

Donald Trump Jr. holds a B.S. in economics from the Wharton School of Business. It’s not a stretch to say that without a healthy dose of nepotism he wouldn’t hold such a high position in his father’s company.

Total Trump Family Net Worth

The total Trump net worth number for the whole family is $5.69 billion. Donald Trump is responsible for 90% of that with $5.18 billion. Jared Kushner accounts for 3% with $181 million while Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump cover another 2% each with $123 million and $121 million respectively. Eric Trump makes up the remaining 1%. Donald Trump’s wife Melanie Trump and children Tiffany and Barron Trump hold onto a negligible portion of the family fortune.

Ivanka Trump Net Worth: $121 Million

The Ivanka Trump net worth sum of $121 million makes her the fourth richest Trump. Including her husband Jared Kushner’s net worth would boost her #2 on the list. Like her brothers Eric and Donald Junior, Ivanka Trump is an executive VP of development & acquisitions at the Trump Organization. What that means in her case is that she’s participated in opening various Trump hotels around the world. She also led the $30 million drive to renovate the Trump Hotel in New York City.

The Trump Organization isn’t Ivanka Trump’s only source of income. The businesswoman and socialite also runs her own fashion business, with its centerpiece being her signature luxury jewelry business. Ivanka holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from the Wharton School of Business. Starting in 1997, she also worked successfully as a high fashion model, appearing in ad campaigns for Sassoon Jeans and Tommy Hilfiger.

Eric Trump Net Worth: $77 Million

The Eric Trump net worth total of $77 million comes from his salary as executive VP of the Trump Organization. Eric Trump holds the same position as both his brother Donald Trump Jr. and his sister Ivanka Trump. That said, Eric Trump doesn’t have his older brother’s 2000 head start or his sister’s 1997-begun modeling career. Eric Trump started working for the family business in 2006. He opened his own winery in 2012, but the earnings from that business don’t compare to estimates for his VP salary of $12 million per year.

Melania Trump Net Worth: $10 Million

The Melania Trump net worth sum of $10 million is based on online reports and on assets listed in husband Donald Trump’s 2015 financial disclosure forms. According to those forms, Melania Trump owns real estate in New York City worth between $1 million and $5 million. According to online reports, she also owns other property worth $5 to $7 million. Melania Trump worked as a model starting in the early 1990s. She also received pay for appearing on The Apprentice, though most of her wealth comes from husband Donald.

Tiffany Trump Net Worth: $600,000

The Tiffany Trump net worth of $600,000 is based entirely on online estimates. The 23 year old released a music single in 2014, though sales appear to be negligible. She did not appear on The Apprentice but did show up on two episodes of Oprah and has made a few other TV appearances. Though the youngest Trump daughter has also interned at Vogue, it’s likely that the bulk of her net worth comes from her father.
