According to a years-long investigation by the New York Times, president Trump received at least $413 million in today's dollars from his father's real estate empire - $140 million of which was a loan.
The Times reports that at the tender age of three, Trump was earning $200,000 a year in 2018 dollars from his dad's business empire, becoming a millionaire by age eight.
When Trump was in high school, his cut of his father's profits was about $17,000 in today's dollars. That number exceeded $300,000 a year soon after he graduated college.
Trump was also receiving the equivalent of $1 million a year from his wealthy father. That amount increased to $5 million a year annually in his 40s and 50s.
According to the Times, Fred Sr did not see his eldest son Fred Trump Jr a viable heir for the family business. The outlet reports that Fred Jr went to work for his father after he finished college, but that turned out to be a bad decision.
Family members and former employees told the Times that Fred Sr would publicly ridicule his son for drinking too much, being too lazy, too nice and too soft. Fred Sr was also not happy his eldest son didn't take much of an interest in the family business.
Witnessing his father's disappointment in Fred Sr, Trump set out to become the opposite of his older brother and soon became known as a 'brash tough guy with a killer instinct'. The Times reports that Trump was rewarded by inheriting his father's fortunes.
Fred Sr not only gave Trump portions of his empire, but he made Trump a salaried employee, property manager, landlord, consultant and banker. He gave Trump money for his car, money for his employees and money to buy stocks, according to the Times. Fred Sr helped his son buy different offices in Manhattan and paid for their renovations.
Trump received shares in multiple partnerships, $10,000 checks at Christmas and the laundry revenue from his father's apartments.
