6. Forbes' Valuation of Trump's Assets May Be Too High

What Timothy O'Brien said might be wrong, but in his book Trump Nation: The Art of Being the Donald, O'Brien said Forbes' valuation of Trump's assets was too high. O'Brien said the problem with the Forbes valuation is that Forbes would give Trump 100% of the value of an asset even if he only owned a small percentage of the asset. Also, there is a question as to whether Forbes actually validates whether or not Trump actually has the assets he claims to own. In Trump Nation, O'Brien seemed to say that at one point Forbes was just taking Donald Trump's word on the size of his net worth.
