How rich are Donald Trump’s children? Unlike their boastful father, they aren’t eager to say. Their earnings aren’t publicly available, and their holdings are tied up in private investments and shielded through opaque shell corporations. Even Ivanka Trump’s federally mandated financial disclosure form, with its broad loopholes and wide ranges, is of limited help.So Forbes dug into property records, court documents and government filings to unearth as much of the first family’s financial dealings as possible. The findings: Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump appear to be worth about $25 million each. Ivanka Trump has likely amassed similar riches from her work at the Trump Organization but is worth far more—around $375 million—when you factor in her fashion line earnings and marriage to real estate heir Jared Kushner. The president’s 26-year-old daughter, Tiffany, and 13-year-old son, Barron, meanwhile, don’t seem to have gotten much from their father so far. Neither has the first lady, besides a small Trump Tower apartment, 33 floors below the couple’s gilded penthouse, worth $1.5 million.
Unlike most wealthy heirs, the Trump children haven’t gotten their riches from trust funds or received chunks of the family business through careful transfers over time. In fact, they own virtually none of the Trump Organization’s vast holdings. The only major venture in which the president has included his family appears to be the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., where his three eldest kids—Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric—each owns a 7.5% stake, worth about $6 million apiece.
Instead, most of their money appears to have come from hefty salaries they’ve earned as longtime executives at the Trump Organization. Their father pays well. Over the past two decades, the three siblings have taken in an estimated $35 million each in pretax salary, commissions and bonuses, according to a Forbes analysis of Donald and Ivanka Trump’s financial disclosures.
