7 things Trump could've purchased with the $38M he paid in taxes


Donald Trump's reluctance to release any tax returns throughout the duration of his campaign (and, subsequently, during the first few months of his presidency) has been nothing short of a focal point during the election cycle.

Though Trump's full tax returns from the past few years have still not been released to the public, details of his 2005 tax return were recently leaked from a source.

Confirmed by the White House, documents showed that Trump made more than $150 million that year and paid a whopping $38 million in taxes.

CNN Money noted that this information was based off of two pages from Trump's 1040 form — it wasn't necessarily the complete version of how much Trump made and paid, so to speak, in 2005.

$38 million is a staggering amount — even for Donald Trump, who's no stranger when it comes to living lavishly.

We decided to put into perspective just how much $38 million is by rounding up seven staggering expenses in the Trump world and seeing how many times Trump would have to pay out those expenses to end up with magic number 38 (million, of course).

Here's what we found:

A $1.5 million engagement ring for Melania seems over the top, but when you take into account that Donald could've purchased 26 versions of the same exact ring and paid the same amount that he did on his tax returns.

That seems minuscule when compared with the nearly 10,556 Gucci jackets he could've bought for Kellyanne Conway with the same amount of money.

We're not quite sure what one would do with that many Gucci jackets, but if anyone wanted to throw one our way, we wouldn't hate it.
