President Donald Trump‘s niece Mary L. Trump is publishing a book revealing herself as the primary source of a New York Times investigation into the president’s finances,The Daily Beast reported.

The investigation revealed that Trump isn’t a self-made man, but had his father bolster his failing businesses in the 1990s with hundreds of millions of dollars. The Daily Beast reported that the book will include Mary Trump’s claim that she supplied The Times with confidential family tax documents.

Trump’s net worth is currently estimated to be $US2.1 billion – down an estimated $US1 billion since the pandemic.

And that’s not to mention the individual net worths of his adult children: a reported $US150 to $US300 million for Eric Trump; a reported $US200 million for Donald Trump Jr.; and a reported $US600,000 for Tiffany Trump, according to Cheat Sheet. Ivanka Trump, who runs her own business, has the largest net worth of all the children. She and her husband Jared Kushner are estimated to be worth up to $US762 million, CNN reported in July 2017, citing financial documents released by the White House.

Combined, that means the entire Trump family‘s fortune could exceed an estimated $US3 billion.

From pricey penthouses and expensive schooling to high-end shopping and a full-on aviation fleet, here’s how they drop their millions and billions.

Trump often travelled during his campaign using his huge aircraft fleet. He reportedly bought a Boeing 727 for $US8 million back in the day, which he then replaced in 2010 with a Boeing 757 that he reportedly bought from Microsoft’s Paul Allen for $US100 million.

And that’s not to mention his three Sikorsky helicopters. Pre-owned Sikorsky S-76s typically sell for $US5 million to $US7 million — not counting the estimated $US750,000 Trump spent redoing the interior of his most recent purchase, which involved 24-karat gold-plated hardware.

Melania also has a taste for pricey fashion. She’s been spotted wearing everything from a $US2,095 Givenchy cape dress at the International Red Cross Ball to a $US7,995 Monique Lhuillier sequined gown at the White House Historical Association dinner.

Melania has said that she’s a full-time mum and that she refuses to spend money on a nanny. In 2013, she told ABC News that she dresses her son, Barron, in suits and moisturizes him with her brand’s Caviar Complex C6 moisturizer. He was 7 years old at the time.
