Donald Trump gave Forbes magazine a guided tour of his Manhattan penthouse, where he bragged that the square footage was a combined 33,000, and that the value was at least $200 million. Records though reveal the actual square footage for Trump's 2 floors to be 10,996. Even if you include his neighbor's apartment, which Trump might partially own, it only comes to about 14,000 sq ft. As for the value, Forbe estimates it's actually worth only $64 million. Both numbers off by roughly 300%.
