National  + Finance  | 

A drawing of the Empire State Building scribbled by President Donald Trump with a black marker has sold at auction for $16,000.

A New York real estate developer and former business partner of the President, Elie Hirschfeld, president of Hirschfeld Properties, purchased the 12-by-9-inch drawing at an auction held in California and online.

President Trump originally created the drawing for a charity auction in 1995, during the time he opened his Mar-a-Lago estate as a private club. Back then, it sold for $100.
