In 2018, there were news reports that Klokov was involved in Donald Trump's project of building a Trump Tower in Moscow. The Mueller Report of 2019 indicated, however, that the individual involved in this matter was not Dmitry Klokov the weightlifter, but another Russian of the same name.
Klokov and his wife, Elena Klokova, have a daughter named Anastasia.
