Trump steps closer to announcement of 2016 plans

Donald Trump is stepping closer to a run for the Republican presidential nomination.

The Republican businessman and reality television star will share details about his personal finances on Tuesday that reveal a net worth of $9 billion.

The well-known television personality will release the financial details at an 11 a.m. announcement in New York, where he will formally declare his 2016 intentions.

That's according to a source close to the campaign who spoke on the condition of anonymity so as not to pre-empt the announcement.

All federal candidates for office, including presidential contenders, are required to release a personal financial disclosure form that includes net worth, sources of income, liabilities and assets.

Doing so was thought by some to be the final obstacle blocking Trump from launching a 2016 campaign.
