Trump faces questions about his net worth in interview he tried to avoid

Former President Donald Trump spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Feb. 28, 2021, in Orlando, Fla.

For decades, Donald Trump has boasted with impunity about a subject close to his heart and ego: his net worth.

"I look better if I'm worth $10 billion than if I'm worth $4 billion," he once said when disputing his ranking on the Forbes billionaires list. In a court case, he acknowledged that when it came to describing the value of his brand, "I'm as accurate as I think I can be." And when he described his self-aggrandizing style in his book, "The Art of the Deal," he chose a phrase that has followed him ever since: "truthful hyperbole."'

But now, Trump will face questions under oath about that pattern of embellishment in an investigation that may shape the future of his family real estate business. The former president and his eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, are expected to be questioned later this month by the New York state attorney general's office, which has been conducting a civil investigation into whether he and his company fraudulently inflated the value of his assets. His son, Donald Trump Jr., was interviewed last week, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
