Donald Trump has an estimated net worth of $4.5 billion as of April 2016, according to Forbes. Donald Trump talks big. Long before he started spinning and exaggerating things on his campaign trail, he himself upgraded the rating of his Trump University¡¯s Better Business Bureau to "A" grade. Recently, he has inflated and amplified the fortune he holds more than by 100%. In last May, Trump in a statement posted to his campaign site claimed that he is worth at least $10 billion and his worth had even increased in the year since he began his campaign. In 2015, when Trump began his presidential campaign, Bloomberg estimated his worth at $2.9 billion. During the same period, Fortune and a number of publications placed him between $3.7 and $3.9 million. As per Forbes, their consistent tracking of Trump's wealth since 1982 reveals that, the value of Trump's property in September 2015, including the value of his various aircrafts and licensing in his name, could reach a maximum total of $4.5 billion. Trump has consistently exaggerated how much he owns and downplayed how much he owes. So far, Trump has spent only $18 million of his $4.5 billion fortune on the campaign and his campaign has raised $25 million for him. Forbes placed him on the 324 rank on the World Billionaires list 2016 (Rank No: 405 on 2015) and rank 113 in the U.S, during 2016.
Do you think Donald Trump has any respect for women?
Donald Trump has become famous for his campaign of insult comedy. He just can¡¯t seem to stop himself from insulting his opponents. Though the real-estate magnate says he generally only attacks people who go after him first, but he never stopped, rather continued his nicknaming during his 2016 campaign, lashed out at rivals, business partners, and the media. To him Mexicans are rapists; all Muslims hate Americans and vowed to build a wall to keep immigrants out of the United States. No person other than Jeb Bush is his biggest target for abuse. He calls him "low energy", "weak", "puppet", "he will NEVER make American great again¡±, and ¡°A total embarrassment to both himself and his family". Some of his other insults include: On Rick Perry, "should be forced to take an IQ test"; On Ben Carson, ¡°has never created a job in his life (well, maybe a nurse)"; On Marco Rubio, "couldn't even respond properly to President Obama's State of the Union Speech without pouring sweat & chugging water"; On Barack Obama, "Is our president insane?"; On Hillary Clinton, ¡°SHE HAS NO STRENGTH OR STAMINA¡±; On George Pataki, "couldn't be elected dog catcher if he ran again"; On Glenn Beck, "always seems to be crying (worse than Boehner) ¡ a real nut job!"; On Juan Williams, "you never speak well of me & yet when I saw you at Fox you ran over like a child and wanted a picture". Perhaps his biggest insult was to his closest rival Hillary Clinton. Trump once remarked: "If Hillary Clinton can't satisfy her husband, what makes her think she can satisfy America?"
Here is a picture of Mia Love as she is meeting the Haitian Community in North Miami.
Ludmya Bourdeau "Mia" Love is an American politician, the first Haitian American and the first black female Republican in Congress. This U.S Representative from Utah is the first African American to be elected to Congress from Utah. Her parents emigrated together from Haiti in 1973, two years before her birth. On Saturday, March 12, 2016, despite her busy political schedule, she took time out to meet a group of Haitian-American professionals at a breakfast reception organized by the Haitian-American Chamber of Commerce of Florida (HACCOF) at Moca Café, in North Miami. Mia came to Miami on an election campaign of Sunshine State for GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubi. The meeting was the result of Mia's 6-month old commitment to the Chamber's Chairman, Jeff Lozama. Mia made the commitment when they met for the first time in Washington, D.C. in last September. In his opening speech, Mr. Lozama made it clear that Ms. Love was present in the meeting for non-political reasons-- to hold open minded talks with her Haitian compatriots. The meeting was a success to certain degrees, because many important Haitian-Americans were absent in the meeting. One reason for their absenteeism could be that Haitian-Americans are politically more inclined to the Democratic Party.

Recent comments by their candidate Donald Trump about immigrants has made the situation worse.
