Eric Trump likened his family’s assets to Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic and priceless “Mona Lisa” painting, which hangs in The Louvre in Paris ― and received widespread ridicule for it on social media.
“Our assets are worth a fortune. They’re the Mona Lisas of the real estate world,” former President Donald Trump’s son bombastically declared on Fox News on Sunday during a discussion about the ongoing civil fraud trial in New York.
New York Attorney General Letitia James accused Donald Trump and his company of routinely overvaluing their assets for financial gain.
Judge Arthur Engoron has already ruled they committed fraud for years. The trial centers on six other allegations, including insurance fraud.
Critics on X, formerly Twitter, mockingly fired back at the Trump scion’s boast.
Some suggested it was a self-own — joking that the “Mona Lisa” is also smaller than most people think and “over-hyped.”

The debt service on Trump properties must make them the most highly leveraged Mona Lisa properties around.

Undersized, overvalued, and most people are profoundly disappointed once seeing them

The Mona Lisa is overvalued, too.

Eric Trump is the type of guy that would list a 1996 cavalier on Facebook marketplace for $20,000

Donald Trump called the Plaza Hotel his “Mona Lisa” property after buying it for about $408 million in 1988 – a deal so bad, so leveraged and so overpriced that he had to put the building into bankruptcy in 1992.
