In a press release from Donald Trump on his personal financial disclosure forms with the Federal Election Commission, Trump mocked Bernie Sanders for filing “an extension for his small report.”

In Tuesday’s press release, Trump said, “I filed my PFD, which I am proud to say is the largest in the history of the FEC. Despite the fact that I am allowed extensions, I have again filed my report, which is 104 pages, on time.”

“Bernie Sanders has requested, on the other hand, an extension for his small report. This is the difference between a businessman and the all talk, no action politicians that have failed the American people for far too long,” Trump argued. “I have built an incredible company and have accumulated one of the greatest portfolios of real estate assets, many of which are considered to be among the finest and most iconic properties in the world. This is the kind of thinking the country needs.”

According to the press release, Trump’s PFD “shows a tremendous cash flow, and a revenue increase of approximately $190 million dollars (which does not include dividends, interest, capital gains, rents and royalties).”

The campaign claims that that the revenue has been used to fund “construction projects at various multi-million dollar developments, reduction of debt and the funding of the campaign.”

“Mr. Trump’s income as reported in the PFD statement is in excess of $557 million (which does not include dividends, interest, capital gains, rents and royalties),” Trump’s press release claimed. “Trump’s net worth has increased since the last statement was filed in July of 2015. As of this date, Mr. Trump’s net worth is in excess of $10 billion dollars.”
