The information provided by Cohen is extremely confusing. For two years, 2011 and 2012, he proposed documents produced in June. For 2013, he said that one of them had been produced in March. The previous two years also include a more detailed list of Trump's assets and liabilities. It is not clear who compiled the documents. But the final document submitted by Cohen does not mention any payments to Trump's loans. And there are four loans whose values are identical to those of 2013 and 2013, suggesting perhaps that no payment has been made to them.
The value of Trump's cash and securities decreased by $ 89 million between 2011 and 2012, but then increased by $ 176.4 million between 2012 and 2013.
The documents offer new valuations of Trump's net worth, produced specifically for Forbes, according to Cohen.
