Gina Rinehart shows up at Donald Trump’s campaign launch

Mining magnate and Australia’s richest person, Gina Rinehart, was photographed at Donald Trump’s presidential campaign launch bid at his Mar-a-Largo resort in Florida.

Rinehart, who has yet to publicly state she was at the event, was a cameo in a selfie posted by Eric Trump with his wife Lara.

In the photo, Rinehart can be seen in the background seated closely behind Eric Trump, wearing a pearl necklace and looking away from the camera, presumably unaware the photo was being taken.

Rinehart, who topped the Financial Review rich list for a third consecutive year row in 2022, with a personal net worth of $34.02 billion, has been supportive of Trump in the past, and welcomed his “exciting” presidency in 2016.

In her past praise, she pointed to Trump’s then plans for America’s economy and called for similar policies – including lower business taxes – to be implemented in Australia.

She also met key members of Trump’s inner circle including Rudy Giuliani and Kellyanne Conway in Washington before he was elected in 2016, and criticised the American media’s “constant and unrelenting negative coverage” of Trump.

In October Rinehart and Hancock Prospecting pulled a $15 million sponsorship deal with Netball Australia after Indigenous goal shooter Donnell Wallam raised concerns about wearing the Hancock Prospecting logo, citing racist comments Rinehart’s father made about Indigenous Australians in the 80s.

Hancock Prospecting have been contacted for comment.
