Despite some of the most epic business failures of Donald Trump, the man is filthy rich and he isn’t afraid to show it. From diamond-encrusted doors to gold seat belts proudly on display for all to see, there’s no doubt about how much money he has. But the things that Donald Trump owns borders on cartoonish, lacking class and finesse like the best of Trump’s tweets.
According to Forbes, Donald Trump’s net worth is $3.5 billion. That includes $1.7 for his New York City real estate alone, plus $630 million for miscellaneous real estate, another $620 million for golf clubs and resorts, and $230 million for Trump brand businesses. The other $270 are his personal assets. So what are these assets? What does Donald Trump own? Take a look at some of the most ridiculous Donald Trump homes, vehicles, and other possessions and vote up the comically gaudy things.
Penthouse Doors Made Of Gold And Diamonds
If you ever make it to the penthouse an the top of Trump Tower, you’ll find yourself face-to-face with a blaze of gaudiness. The two giant doors are encrusted in both gold and diamonds. Just in case you weren’t sure about Donald Trump’s wealth, he’s planted these ridiculous doors to remove any doubt before you even step inside.
Private Golden Boeing 757
Donald Trump purchased his own personal, custom-made Boeing 757 in 2011. Custom-made in what way? Well, for starters, there’s a bathroom with a gold-plated sink and all the seats have gold-plated belts. It also has an office and several bedrooms. The plane needed new engines at one point, so he had them replaced with two engines from a Rolls Royce. The 757 is valued at over $35 million.
Gold Motorcycle From American Chopper
On an episode of American Chopper, the guys built and gifted Donald Trump a custom-made bike. Is it plated in gold? Why, yes. Yes, it is. And it’s got Trump’s second favorite thing on it: his name. Not that Donald needs free bikes, but it probably didn’t hurt that American Chopper’s Paul Teutul, Sr. was a contestant at the time on Celebrity Apprentice.
Long before Mar-a-Lago became Donald Trump’s lavish Florida retreat, .the 20-acre estate was built in 1927 by cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post for $7 million. In 1973, she donated it to the US government with the intention that it would be used by the president as “the winter White House.” However, the government found that maintaining the property was too much and returned it to the Post estate. It was put up for sale and bought by Donald Trump in 1985.
The estate includes a ballroom containing $7 million in gold leaves and four different gold-plated sinks. (When it comes to Trump’s possessions, it might be easier to name ones that aren’t covered in gold.)
1956 Silver Cloud Rolls-Royce Replica
This was one of the first cars Donald Trump ever owned. He liked owning the Silver Cloud so much that he reportedly paid Rolls-Royce to make him a new one, just like the one he owned before. Of course, we can safely assume that he also had them plate it with as much gold as possible.
Private Golden Helicopter
There’s no mistaking this Sikorsky S-76 belongs to Trump, and it’s not just because his name’s on the side. Like many of his other possessions, Trump gold-plated as many parts of this chopper as possible, like the seat belts and the handles. It also has four luxury leather chairs and gold-encrusted Trump emblems on many of the cabinets and tables.
17 Different Golf Courses
That’s right, Trump owns 17 golf courses. There’s Trump International in Palm Beach, which cost over $40 million to design. There’s also Trump National in Jupiter, Florida, which was designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus. There’s also two in Scotland, one in Ireland, and even one in Dubai. With this many golf courses, you kind of have to wonder if Trump only likes golf because he got it confused with the word “gold.”
One of his best-known assets, Trump Tower is 58-story skyscraper in Manhattan. The top three floors are his personal Penthouse, which includes a few items on this list along with marble walls, Louis XIV-inspired furniture, gold-rimmed glasses, and a reproduction of Renoir’s “La Loge” painting (but not the rumored solid gold toilet). The rest of the building has apartments and offices, as well as the Trump Grill, the Trump Cafe, and the Trump Bar. All in all, the building is valued at $371 million.
GOAT: A Tribute To Muhammad Ali
There are only 1,000 copies of the “sumo-sized” edition of this book honoring the legendary boxer, and Donald Trump owns one of them. Each copy is individually numbered, signed by Ali himself, and valued at $15,000. Trump and Ali reportedly had a friendship, but that didn’t stop Muhammad Ali, Jr. from speaking out against Trump’s travel ban affecting Muslim countries.
Chevy Camaro Indy 500 Pace Car
In 2011, Donald Trump was scheduled to drive the pace car at the Indy 500, but was unable to make it. Despite this, he apparently has the pace car in his collection. It’s a replica of the same pace car used in 1969 and only 500 of the replicas were built by GM.
In 2011, Donald Trump completed the purchase of the estate of Patricia Kluge in Charlottesville, Virginia, which included a vineyard and a winery. The 23,000 square-foot mansion cost $6.5 million, while the businesses cost $6.2 million. The estate has 45 rooms, a horse stable, a movie theater, and more. Initially purchased by Donald, control over the estate was handed to his son, Eric, at some point.
Seven Springs Estate
The Seven Springs estate in Bedford, New York was built in 1919 by Eugene Meyer, owner of The Washington Post. In 1996, it was purchased by Trump for $7.5 million. However, don’t expect all 213 acres of property to be developed – there’s an agreement that prevents Trump or any future owners from building anything on 159 of the estate’s acres.
1993 Cadillac Allante
This Cadillac doesn’t have much in the horsepower department and isn’t as fancy as some of his other cars. However, it was the pace car of the 76th Indy 500 and ’93 was the final year the Allante was made, which is probably why the Allante has a spot in Trump’s collection. (You know you’re rich if your Caddy is considered your car collection’s weak link.)
Statue Of Eros And Psyche
At his penthouse at Trump Tower, Trump has a bronze statue of Eros and Psyche (seen above, left of Melania). Eros is the son Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Aphrodite is upset with Psyche, a human princess, and instructs Eros to maker her fall in love with something hideous. Instead, Eros falls in love with Psyche and eventually makes her fall in love with him even though he’s invisible. Trump’s statue of the couple, on the other hand, is far from invisible.
