According to NBC, he said this during a visit to a petrochemical plant in the US state of Pennsylvania.
“Being a president costs me a fortune,” Trump said.
According to him, part of these financial losses is associated with the costs of lawyers due to lawsuits filed against him.
“This (the work of the US president. - RT ), may cost me from $ 3 billion to $ 5 billion. But I do not care, I don’t care,” he said.
As the television company clarifies, Trump’s statements about the amount that he allegedly loses due to his election as president cannot be verified.
Earlier, Trump allocated part of his salary to the American Ministry.
In April 2018, former Forbes journalist Jonathan Greenberg told The Washington Post that Trump had pretended to be his representative in 1984 to be on the magazine’s 400 richest Americans list.
