Donald Trump made billions by snapping up real estate, but his latest purchase could earn him votes in his presidential campaign. Trump bought JebBush.com on February 9, 2016, after Jeb Bush forgot to pay the small renewal fee to keep the domain.

Jeb! has been campaigning without his last name -- which some would argue was soiled by his older brother's presidency -- but the loss of his name domain only gave his rival a chance to own and use it.

Trump is using it by redirecting web surfers who type JebBush.com into their browsers to his site DonaldJtrump.com.
