“A tough real estate market, a costly lawsuit and an expensive presidential campaign all contributed to the declining fortune of the 45th president,” Forbes reported.

“The biggest hit was to Trump’s real estate portfolio, which is weighted heavily toward New York City,” it added.

“Values of several Manhattan properties, particularly those on or near Fifth Avenue, have dropped, shaving nearly $400 million off his fortune.”
