Donald Trump Provides the Answer on 'What's America Worth?' (VIDEO)

Donald Trump, 'What's America Worth?'When you read about the staggering $15 trillion debt that America has racked up, it can lead you to wonder if we'll ever be able to get out from under it as a nation. Just for fun, Donald Trump and the Discovery Channel asked the question, 'What's America Worth?' (Sun., 9PM ET on Discovery).

Now this is assuming that the country is basically being liquidated, with all of its assets converted into cold, hard cash, including its citizens. Trump also accounted for that massive debt. But while our natural and rural resources couldn't touch it, we quickly overcame the debt when you factored in our development, military and citizens. Final tally, after paying off that debt: $280 trillion.

"Not bad," Trump said, but we're not so sure we're ready to liquidate the United States of America to see that number come to life.

Heck..sell now. I would be pleased to handle the sale at 2% of selling price. Closing costs to the buyer.

That's TRILLION, not billion. It is hard to believe that our intelligent elected and appointed brains have put us into such a money mess. Just goes to show that they are not accustomed to handling their own money.
Vote the suckers out!!! and get rid of that liberal Supreme court!!!
