Donald Trump's Defamation Suit
Julie Hilden discusses Donald Trump's defamation lawsuit against Timothy O'Brien, who wrote TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald, and Warner Books. Trump's asking five billion in damages, or a smidgen less than twice the 2.7 billion dollars Forbes Magazine estimates he was worth in 2004. She suggests that the case may turn on whether O'Brien's statements about Trump's net worth, which O'Brien places at no more than $250 million, far less than the megabucks Trump alleges, are opinion or fact.
