You posted a Show HN of this project a few days ago: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=23407643. You can't make a new Show HN out of the same project on a different example, such as Trump instead of senators. That's not different enough. This is in the Show HN guidelines: https://news.ycombinator.com/showhn.html.

New features and upgrades ("Foo 1.3.1 is out") generally aren't substantive enough to be Show HNs. A major overhaul is probably ok.

Would be amazing to get expanded view into family members and friends

No way this is his actual portfolio.

Unless he's been lying on his legally mandated personal finance disclosure docs for the past three years, it is: https://extapps2.oge.gov/201/Presiden.nsf/President%20and%20...

As I understand it, Trump’s net worth has taken a big drop during his presidency https://www.nbcnews.com/business/business-news/trump-has-los...

While this doesn’t mean there hasn’t been any wrongdoing, I think it does weaken the narrative that he’s exploiting his position for personal gain.

My understanding is that most of his decline in net worth is due to problems with branding and security at his hotels / resorts -- i.e. problems with his non-publicly traded assets. In my mind, this would, if anything, create additional incentives for him to move public markets for his financial benefit to recover some of the money he's lost elsewhere.

Fair point, although the losses seem to be from the huge repetitional harm he's taken. He still may be trying to leverage the presidency to do what he can to improve his finances.
