Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says he doesn’t believe he is worth $1.3 billion and that his net worth is “minimal” after his recent divorce from his wife of 20 years.
In a new interview with The Hill, Giuliani says his net wealth is “very minimal.”
“I’m not even close to the top one percent of earners.
I don’t think it’s ever going to be,” Giuliani told The Hill’s Ben Kamisar.
Giuliani said his net-worth is “somewhere around $1 billion.”
He said that despite his financial struggles, he was “not really worried” about his net financial worth, saying that he has always had a “good credit history.”
“When you have a job that you want, and you’re trying to be the best, you’re working very hard and you feel like you’re getting rewarded for that, and it’s not because you’re doing the right things,” he said.
“That’s not something I’m concerned about.”
Giulino was divorced from his first wife, Donna Shalala, in 2015, and his second wife, Ivanka Trump, in June of 2017.
In his new interview, Giuliani also criticized President Donald Trump for not addressing the opioid crisis in a timely manner.
“I think he’s the most successful person in the world because of his success, but the problem is he’s failed to address the opioid epidemic,” he told The New York Times.
“He doesn’t understand that.”
Giustra also said that he had never smoked pot.
“Never,” he responded when asked if he has smoked marijuana in the past.
“No,” Trump said.
“That was a lie, but I think it was true,” Giuliani said.
He said his wife and children were in good health.
“We had a wonderful marriage,” he added.
Giusta, who also serves as president of the American Legion, said he was saddened by the death of Army Sergeant First Class James DiCaprio, who was killed in Afghanistan in December.
“He’s a wonderful human being,” he continued.
“But I’m saddened by this because he’s such a nice guy.”
Giurgesi said he does not regret supporting Trump’s bid for president in 2020.
“If I had been in a different situation and had been with Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden, I would have supported him.
I would’ve supported him in a heartbeat,” he stated.”
But I didn’t do that.
I support Trump because I believe in what he stands for and because I’m passionate about what he’s doing for our country.”
