NEW YORK, March 20 While Donald Trump's political fortunes were rising, his net worth was dropping to a mere $3.5 billion, or roughly a third of what he claimed during his successful campaign for the US presidency, according to the latest Forbes list of the world's billionaires.

The magazine also notes that he gave $66 million to his presidential campaign and paid $25 million to settle a lawsuit related to Trump University. Their average net worth is $3.75 billion, which means Trump is not even worth as much as the "average" billionaire.
