For mere mortals, budgeting is an important attribute to have. Without a bottomless pit of trust funds, we need to make sure that we have enough money to make it through the day. Whether it be paying off student loans, buying groceries, or saving up for that Netflix subscription, we need to know how to keep our wallets and cravings in check. But controversial President of the United States, Donald Trump, does not have that problem. On top of being known for his flowing hair, he’s also known for owning loads of ridiculously expensive items. Surprised we’re not getting political? Here’s a list of 7 ridiculously expensive things that POTUS owns.
We all know about the Trump tower, and his reality show The Apprentice, but what else does Donald Trump own that average American citizens simply can’t afford?
Read on to find out what items Trump likes to get gold-plated.
1. Besides getting everything he owns engraved with his family emblem, Trump also likes to get his possessions gold-plated. From cutlery, to private jets, to his New York penthouse, everything needs to have a nice coat of gold on it. Maybe that’s why he always has that orange glow to him?
Trump’s penthouse in New York City was inspired by Louis XIV, covering three floors. Commonly referred to as the 68th floor of Trump Tower, this is the home base of Trump, his wife Melania and his son Barron. Adorned with marble, diamonds, crystal chandeliers, murals on the ceiling and of course, 24 karat gold, Trump’s home is ridiculously expensive to say the least.
What you don’t see in the below picture are gold-rimmed cups in Trump’s gold-rimmed cabinets, a personalized toy Mercedes for his son, Barron, and a statue of Eros and Psyche. This expensive penthouse estimated at over $100 million embraces the view of the Manhattan skyline and Central Park. And yes, that book is a tribute to Muhammad Ali and it is worth over $15,000.
Angelo Donghia, a member of the Interior Design Hall of Fame, is responsible for the design and splendor of Trump’s penthouse. What is not shown in this picture is a fountain that is present in the family sitting room behind two ivory, semi-circle couches. With an apartment like that you wonder why Trump would trade this for the White House.
