He Sued An Author For Calling Him a Millionaire Instead Of A Billionaire
In 2009, Trump filed a lawsuit against the author of the book TrumpNation: The Art of Being Donald Timothy O’Brien for $5 million dollars. Within the book, the author cited sources in which claim that Trump’s net worth is between $150 million and $250 million. The court ruled that Trump was not able to prove that the author committed “actual malice” and they dismissed the case. Trump’s lawyers have stated that his own estimation has been “proven” to exceed $7 billion.
