Exclusive: Net Worth: Trump’s Annual Growth Compared To America’s & Ted Cruz’s

Published

on

As I was perusing Facebook posts the other day, I came across this meme posted on the Republicans of California page (of which I’m a member):

trump inheritance meme

I read the back and forth in the comments section between pro-Trump people, and those who are pro-Cruz, or Kasich, etc.

I was trying to think of a good comment to post, when I thought, “If Trump did inherit that much, has he managed the money well?” This led me to look into Trump’s annual growth rate from the time he received his inheritance, to present time.

I did a little checking on the $100 million inheritance number, and I found that most news outlets are reporting that it was more than likely around $40 million. Whatever the amount, everyone’s in agreement that Trump received his inheritance in 1974. Of course, the first glimpse we get at Trump’s net worth is in 1978 when Business Week estimated Trump’s net worth at $100 million. That’s the number we’ll go with when comparing Trump’s annual growth to that of the United States’, and to Ted Cruz’s.

The calculation for annual growth is:

Calculate-an-Annual-Percentage-Growth-Rate

I took the easy route & used a growth rate calculator.

Here’s the annual growth rate for the USA, Trump, and Ted Cruz. The growth rate for the United States & Trump are from 1978 to 2014 (1978 being the year we have Trump’s earliest net worth calculation).

United States annual growth rate of net worth from 1978 to 2014

american flag liberty

In 1978 the United States had a net worth of $12 trillion.

In 2014 we had a net worth of 123.8 trillion.

That’s a 25% annual growth rate. Not bad, right? We’ve done pretty good for ourselves.

Trump’s annual growth rate of net worth from 1978 to 2014

Trump

(For Trump’s 2014 net worth we look at 3 different figures. Bloomberg has Trump’s net worth at $2.9 billion, Forbes has it at $4.1 billion, and Trump has said it is $10 billion. We’ll calculate the annual growth rate for all three numbers)

In 1978 Trump had a net worth of $100 million.

According to Bloomberg, Trump had a net worth of 2.9 billion in 2014.

That’s a:

78% annual growth rate.

According to Forbes, Trump had a net worth of 4.1 billion in 2014.
If that figure is true, then Trump had a:

111% annual growth rate.

According to Trump, he had a net worth of 10 billion in 2015 (we added a year for this calculation).
If that figure is true, then Trump had a:

267% annual growth rate.

Just for fun, we calculated Trump’s annual growth rate from 1974, assuming that he had a net worth of $40 million at that time. We can’t actually use that figure, as we don’t know if he was worth more, which, most likely he was. Here are the numbers.

If Trump’s net worth was $40 million in 1974, and it was $2.9 billion in 2014, then his annual growth rate would be:

179%

If his net worth in 2014 was 4.1 billion, his annual growth rate would be:

254%

If his net worth in 2014 was $10 billion, his annual growth rate would be:

673%

Ted Cruz’s annual growth rate of net worth from 2012 to 2015

Senator Ted Cruz

As we only have Cruz’s recent financial disclosures to go on, we have a shorter span of time to look at.
Forbes has Cruz’s net worth for 2015 at $3.5 million. Net Worth Tomb has it at $4 million. We look at both numbers.

Net Worth Tomb estimates Cruz’s 2012 net worth to be $2,285,714.

If Cruz’s net worth was $3.5 million in 2015, his annual growth rate would be:

18%

If his net worth was $4 million in 2015, his annual growth rate would be:

25%

Now, it appears that Trump’s annual growth far surpasses that of the United States, and Cruz’s. There are some economists who say that Trump could have made billions more if he “had invested in an index fund in 1988.”

Of course, in a recent speech the Republican candidate for president said he loves “getting and getting.” He said something to the effect that he doesn’t care about how much he has, he loves the “acquiring” of things. I believe that Trump loves the “thrill of the chase,” and the capture, but not really holding onto something. It’s boring to him. He needs new challenges, and he likes to win. Investing his inheritance way back in the day would’ve been boring to him. He wouldn’t have had to do anything except watch his investment grow. That wouldn’t do it for him. He’s a hunter & a killer. Nothing boring about that.

So here we have it.

America’s annual growth rate over the last 36 years has been 25%
Ted Cruz’s has been 18-25%
Trump’s has been between 76-267%

We’ll take the middle figure for Trump which seems the most reliable. That’s a 111% net worth growth rate (Fortune Magazine actually has Trump’s growth rate at 300% since 1987).

If Trump can do for America what he did with his inheritance & holdings, the country would be in amazing shape, financially.

In one year, America’s net worth would more than double, going from $123 trillion, to $261 trillion.

If we stay at our current rate of 25% annual growth, America’s net worth will only be $154.75 trillion next year.

With the kind of growth Trump could bring, is it safe to say he could pay off the debt in 8 years? I say he could do it even quicker.

Now tell me who you’d rather have as president what with our astronomical debt, and failing economy.

Michelle Tries To Convince Crowd That She’s A ‘Sex Symbol’ – Gets Wrecked Instead

Published

on

Barack and Michelle have had quite a hard time relinquishing the power they once held ever since the Trumps took over at the White House. As Obama remains obsessed with trolling President Trump with his “shadow government,” Michelle has been obsessed with maintaining the media spotlight she once held as First Lady, where she’s been frantically booking up interviews and public appearances to compete with the beautiful and sweet Melania. But shortly after Michelle decided to tout herself as America’s “sex symbol,” her ridiculous claim has now come back to haunt her, after the American people who have finally had enough of her revolting lies are making their voices known.

After spending the last 8 years race-baiting and blasting our country alongside her treasonous American-hating husband, Michelle is trying desperately to maintain her relevance in American society, which is proving just like her school lunch programs, to be a massive failure. Several weeks ago, rather than slipping into obscurity like we had hoped, Michelle helped host ESPN’s ESPY awards, where just the mere sight of her ugly mug resulted in millions of viewers turning off the show. Breitbart reports the awards show resulted in a historic new low in viewership for ESPN, leaving Michelle embarrassed and licking her wounds. But in her latest pathetic effort to be important, the backlash from Americans this time is massive, and will leave you laughing your ass off.

In a recent interview while bragging about her “accomplishments” as First Lady, Michelle touted herself as America’s “sex symbol,” claiming that she has issues simply walking down the street because men barely can barely contain their lust at the mere sight of her.

“As I got older, I found that men would whistle at me or make comments about how I looked as I walked down the street,” saying that men would routinely cat call as she walked by. “As if my body were their property. As if I were an object to be commented on instead of a full human being with thoughts and feelings of my own.”

The words had barely left her fat lying mouth and people across America were already questioning what alternate reality Michelle Obama resides in where she seriously thinks she’s America’s “sex symbol.” Here’s some of the most politically incorrect responses that were posted in response to Michelle’s claim:

“What sex and what species? Maybe a Congress of Baboons or Silverbacks. Pesky liberals and Democrats, if it is not dead people for votes in a poll, then it is raiding the zoo.”

“More like an abstinence symbol, I think.”

“These people are totally delusional – Obama thinks he’s a straight guy born in Hawaii that did a great job as President – WRONG. Michael thinks he is a woman who was the best first lady every and is a sex symbol in America – WRONG. These two guys need help – they are living in a fantasy world.”

“There is not enough alcohol or drugs available that could ever make Manchelle Obama a sex symbol. That would be like dragging your balls across 5 miles of broken glass just to hear Michael Moore fart in a payphone.”

“Her poor attitude and condescending arrogance is a symbol for abstinence. A person’s charm is what attracts. She is disgusting. Every parent of a horny teenage boy should make certain he has a picture Michelle in his wallet next to the Trojan.”

“Sex symbol? ROFLMAO OMG YOU’RE KILLING ME!”

“She may be a sex symbol on the planet the Predator came from.”

“She is a sex symbol….a symbol for not wanting sex. Picture her every time you look at someone and you definitely won’t want sex.”

“I think I just up threw up in my mouth and shit my self laughing to hard.”

“First, if she’s a sex symbol, what does that make Melania? And in all seriousness, she could be the most beautiful person on the planet, but to me, she’s ugly on the inside.”

It’s truly startling how huge Michelle Obama’s ego is, which apparently has grown exponentially since she left the White House. Sorry Michelle, there’s lots of things you can claim about yourself, but sex symbol is not one of them. Now if you want to tout yourself as the “most race-baiting” or the “most anti-American first lady in American history,” then THAT is claim that the American people can rally behind!

Mom Shares Pic Of Girl Dressed As Melania And Everyone Immediately Noticed ONE Thing

Michelle Will Be FURIOUS When She Sees How Mom Dressed Her Daughter For School’s First Lady Project

An Alabama elementary school teacher assigned her class a presentation project to depict their favorite First Lady. Students were allowed to choose any FLOTUS in history and for whatever reason they wanted, so long as they explained why they picked who they did. One mother took this as an opportunity to get especially creative in helping her daughter put on what was arguably the best demonstration for this assignment that former First Lady Michelle Obama probably didn’t appreciate.

The 8-year-old unnamed student wasn’t told who to pick for her project, she came up with the idea on her own and talented mother helped her achieve it. The end result is the picture of parenting well done, but more importantly, it’s the message that many in America are missing, delivered by a little girl.

Having learned about many notable First Ladies leading up to this project, the little girl chose our current FLOTUS, Melania Trump, as her favorite. The image that apparently stood out to her as the most impressive, was Melania’s Inauguration Day look when she donned a classic “Jackie O” style. Her mother helped her recreate the recent iconic moment, sewing an ensemble that was impressively identical to Melania’s and styling her daughter’s hair in the same classy, yet understated up-do. However, what she was holding represented a little piece of another FLOTUS as perhaps an underlying message.

The second grader held a Tiffany’s box that was a replica of the gift she gave Michelle Obama when they former First Couple greeted their replacements at the White House on that Inaugural morning. The response Michelle gave Melania when she handed her the gift, sent shock waves around the country as she seemingly couldn’t control her face or hide her hate the second she accepted it.

Michelle probably doesn’t like that her time as FLOTUS didn’t leave an impression on the young generation enough for this girl or anyone else to have picked her to honor. What’s most impressive is not only how perfect this little girl looked as Melania but that we finally have a First Lady that girls can look up to and be inspired by.

Months After Announcing Pregnancy, Trump Shares Sad News About His Son And Daughter

Published

on

Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump and his wife, Lara announced the exciting news in April that they are expecting their first child together — a son. The First Family who is very child-oriented couldn’t have been more elated, only for that happiness of the occasion to be squelched two months later as sad news comes out that also involves Ivanka Trump as well.

Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner traveled with Donald and Melania on their first overseas trip as President and First Lady. The couple cut their trip short leaving to return home to the U.S. after the stop in Rome, Italy. Not much was reported about the pair coming back before the G7 Summit, but now that all the Trumps are back, word is getting out about what’s been going on.

While Jared and Ivanka had always planned to return home before her father, what they weren’t expecting is what she and her brother Eric received upon her arrival. The brother and sister duo have a lot going on in their individual lives and have been under an almost equal attack from the left for different and various reasons, but now liberal degenerates have found a new reason to take these respectable siblings down.

For Eric, the onslaught of negativity reached a low point when liberals began slandering his unborn child, simply for being born into the Trump family. Just as he and Lara were getting past that sickening attack, they slammed his foundation – the Eric Trump Foundation – having just gone after Ivanka’s charitable efforts, comparing both to the corrupt enterprise of the Clinton Foundation.

Although both of the Trump’s charities are legitimate, The Daily Kos thought they dug up the smoking gun of “evidence” they “exposed” this past Friday on May 26, alleging that the donations were being used to benefit Donald Trump and his golf courses.

“A careful review of Eric Trump’s charity revealed the eponymous foundation spent large sums of money at fundraising events on Donald Trump’s golf courses—$881,779 in total,” Daily Kos reported. “In 2013, $100,000 went directly to Donald Trump himself.  It seems that whenever people give the Trump’s charity money, they better keep a string and a GPS tracker on it to find out just who’s pocket it winds up in.”

However, that’s not where $16.3 million went to which the liberal rag conveniently left out, but the beneficiary confirmed having received Eric’s foundation’s generous donation.

“St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital of Tennessee confirmed that Eric Trump has helped raise $16.3 million for the hospital over the last decade,” The New York Times reported. The president of the children’s hospital fundraising organization, Richard C. Shadyac Jr., wrote the letter to the Eric Trump Foundation praising the president’s son for his incredible contribution. “I am amazed by the many ways that you have personally embraced our cause and cared for our children and families,” Shadyac said.

However, in an effort to stay above board and avoid any conflict of interested with his father’s presidency after this scandal that liberals created, Eric, his sister-in-law, and Trump Organization official have decided to remove themselves from the foundation’s executive committee, according to NewsMax.

“It’s what we’ve been dealing with since day one, Eric fired back at the culmination of the attack on his foundation. “We came under attack every single day during the campaign, and we’re going to continue to come under attack. So many of these people, they got it wrong,” he added.

“In fact, I think they’re going so extreme in so many cases that I think they’re losing a lot of credibility, and I think that’s really resonating with Americans,” Eric continued. The president came to his son’s defense speaking out about the attack for the first time since it began:

“My wonderful son, Eric, will no longer be allowed to raise money for children with cancer because of a possible conflict of interest with my presidency.” St. Jude offers free healthcare for children whose treatment relies completely on the generosity of others. While Eric’s organization will still continue to campaign for this cause, he’s directing all donors to give their financial gifts directly to the hospital, rather than funneling it through the foundation, effectively avoiding any future allegations of misappropriation.

What the nation is learning about liberals in the days since Trump decided to run for president is that children are not excluded from their attacks and attempts to take this family down. Whether it be Donald Trump’s youngest son Barron, Eric Trump’s unborn baby, or sick kids at St. Jude who benefit from Eric’s charity, it’s all fair game to make this family look bad.
