President Donald Trump said that he had lost billions by leaving his real estate company to run for political office.
Believe me. I didnt do it for me, Trump said. I lost a fortune. This job has cost me billions and billions of dollars.
The president spoke about the impact that becoming president had on his personal wealth during a campaign rally in Janesville, Wisconsin.
I would say it cost me two, three, maybe more billion dollars, Trump said.
He noted that the fake news media harped on the fact that he was not raising as much money as former Vice President Joe Bidens campaign.
Trump said that he could easily raise more money, but he did not want to be beholden to wealthy donors.
Nobody could ever raise money like me, I just dont want to do it, Trump said. Because it puts us all meaning us, I did this for us, and not for me.
Trump mocked the media for criticizing his hotels for allowing foreign dignitaries to stay in them for a few hundred dollars a night.
Billions I lost, and thats ok, because Im doing something thats the most important thing Ive ever done, he said.
The president reminded his supporters that he gave up his $400,000 annual salary as president.
I never talk about it, they never talk about it, he said.

Obama was disgusting but we never abused him.
The job of President has made him the most famous man on earth though so there is that.
People like Biden snd Obama got rich the old fashioned way. They arrived in DC Poor and left multi Millionaires.
The President should be introduced to us here at FR
We should be thankful for a billionaire who lost millions, than broke ass politicians who came in broke, and left millionaires.
Funny how Democrats who get richer in office are not crooks but a man who gets poorer is incessantly called one, huh?
Gotta wonder how much of those pallets of cash to Iran came back to Obama.
Sounds like a great speech, maybe his best yet. Sorry I missed that one. 8>(
I’ll be first in line to buy when he sells his book and/or makes it into a movie. It’ll be one for the ages.
I have often thought that the President should become a member of Freerepublic.
He would certainly be welcomed.
Trump doesnt need a lot of money with a strong message like MAGA.
With all those many more millions what is Bidens message?
Just gonna say Trump products and hotels are now places I look. Sometimes the first search for vacation plans.
Thank you for sharing this.
Without a doubt public service has cost Trump a great deal of money
