In a recent speech at a sold-out GOP fundraiser in Rapid City, Donald Trump made a surprising claim that he had missed out on huge financial opportunities during his time as President of the United States. Here’s the full story.

During his speech, Trump said, “I’m the only president who ever lost money while serving in office … I lost a number of billions! I could’ve made a fortune.”

“I could’ve gone to these countries and made deals … I told my kids ‘Don’t do deals.’ They said, ‘Dad can we do something? I said, ‘No, I’m president. We have a higher standard,’” he added.

One commenter humorously wrote, “Are we sure he didn’t really say… ‘I’ve made a fortune. I’ve gone to these countries and made deals. My kids said, ‘Dad, can we do something? And I said, I’m President, we can do anything. We don’t have to follow any standards.”

“A Noble Sacrifice”

Another commented “What a noble sacrifice,” while a third user added, “Didn’t he already have what most would consider a fortune before becoming president?”

A fourth user wrote, “Trump made more money [] while in office than most people make in a lifetime.”

Another added, “Did he just admit his children wanted to ‘do something’ with foreign countries? The same ‘something’ he’s blaming Biden for?”

He Should Return to Business

A fifth commented, “Since all Trump cares about is money, and if being president wasn’t profitable enough for him, then perhaps returning to the full-time grift-making business is a wiser choice than seeking the presidency again.”
