Over the past three years, being the countrys commander-in-chief cost President Donald Trump between $2 billion and $5 billion in lost earnings, he said on Monday.
“Its cost me anywhere from $2 [billion] to $5 billion to be president … between what I lose and what I could have made,” Trump said during a cabinet meeting at the White House.
“I wouldve made a fortune if I just ran my business—I was doing it really well,” he said, according to Fox Business.
However, Trump said he doesnt regret it.
“If I had it to go it again I would do it in an instant, because who cares, if you can afford it, what difference does it make?” he told reporters, according to Reuters.
Trump ran a series of resorts bearing his namesake around the world before he became president. His children have taken over the family business.
“Whether I lost $2 billion, $5 billion or less, it doesnt make any difference. I dont care,” Trump told reporters. “Im doing this for the country. Im doing it for the people.”
In the meeting, Trump also discussed looking at different locations for next years G-7 summit after he went back on a decision to host the event at his Doral resort near Miami.
“I dont think itll be as exciting, I dont think itll be as good,” Trump said of the potential new location. “Itll cost the country a fortune because its very expensive. … I was willing to do it for free but people didnt like that. They thought I may get some promotional value,” as reported by Fox Business.
