Donald Trump finally sells Palm Beach mansion

The mogul Donald Trump originally put the massive Palm Beach property on the market in 2006 for a staggering $126 million - recents reports show that the property has finally been sold for an impressive $100 million. 

Trump tweeted on June 5th

The mansion has been sold to Russian billionaire, Dmitry Rybolovlev. Trump has been quoted as saying: "In an age of so many people getting hurt in real estate, it shows that you can still do well in real estate."

A spokeswoman for the mogul is the largest sale in the U.S, but this claim cannot be verified.

The roughly 60,000 square-foot (5,575-square-meter) oceanfront home, was which fixed up by Trump after buying it for about $41 million in 2004.

He assigned renovations to Kendra Todd, a winner on Trump's reality TV show competition "The Apprentice," who dressed it up with marble and 24-karat gold fixtures, even in the bathrooms. The home, called Maison de L'Amitie, is spread over several buildings and includes separate coat closets and bathrooms for men and women off the main entryway for easy entertaining. A mammoth fountain greets guests from the front along with 475 feet (145 meters) of ocean in the back

"I think it's a great sign for the area, a great sign for Palm Beach and all that Palm Beach represents," Trump said.
