When you’re worth billions of dollars, like President Donald Trump, you can purchase anything your heart desires. From flashy luxury cars to all-gold furnishings, money is no object when it comes to his spending habits. Here are a few things Donald Trump likes to spend his money on.
If you’re rich like Trump, you don’t even think twice about spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on flashy, luxury vehicles. Before becoming President of the United States, Trump was usually chauffeured around New York City in a limousine. But when he did feeling like getting behind the wheel and driving himself around town, he could be found burning rubber in one of his foreign cars, like a 2015 Rolls-Royce Phantom, a Maybach, a Ferrari, a Mercedes-Benz S600, and an SLR McLaren valued at over $450,000.
It’s pretty standard that every billionaire owns a yacht, and Trump’s watercraft was top-of-the-line and ridiculously expensive. In 1988, he and his first wife Ivana purchased a yacht they named “Trump Princess” for $29 million dollars. The yacht was so beautiful, it even made an appearance in the James Bond movie “Never Say Never Again.” At the time, it was the third-largest yacht in the world, with enough room for 22 passengers and 52 crew members, 11 luxury staterooms, three elevators, a movie theater, a disco, a swimming pool, and a helicopter landing deck.
Trump is one of the few people who know what it’s like to use a bathroom that’s decked out and dripping in gold. His New York City penthouse and his private jet were each designed with the finest gold accents. His Boeing 757, which is worth an estimated $100 million dollars, has 24-karat gold-plated bathroom fixtures and gold trim, and his plane even comes equipped with gold-plated seat belts. Now that’s what we call fancy!
When it came time to marry Melania back in 2005, Trump made sure his bride felt like a royal princess on their wedding day. The celebration took place at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, and Trump had a 20,000-square-feet ballroom built just for the occasion. Melania’s dress was custom made by Christian Dior. It had a 13-foot train, a 16-foot veil, and it cost an estimated $100,000 dollars. Their five-feet-tall wedding cake weighed 200 pounds, had 3,000 beautiful white icing roses, and was filled with the finest Grand Marnier buttercream. In total, Trump spent $1 million dollars on his wedding day!
