Donald Trump lost the 2020 Presidential Election, and he wasn’t happy about that. His actions that followed saw him getting a Twitter ban. He is still fighting that ban, because now he doesn’t have a platform to complain about Forbes’ new list.
Trump fell off of Forbes’ richest people list. He was “$400 million short” in having enough funds to make his way onto the list of who’s who in terms of financial value.
The former POTUS has an estimated net worth of $2.5 billion, which means he is still a very rich man. He was in the #339 spot on last year’s list, but now “Trump is down $600 million” due to the fact that his properties lost so much value in recent memory.
This marks the first time in 25 years that Donald Trump didn’t make the list. If you’re wondering, Jeff Bezos topped the list with a $201 billion net worth. Elon Musk came in #2 with $190.5 billion to his name. Mark Zuckerberg ranked in #3 with $143.5 billion and Bill Gates came in #4 with $134 billion.
The 400 members on Forbes’ exclusive list saw their wealth jump a reported 40% over the last year, accumulating $4.5 trillion in total. Trump didn’t quite have enough to join that prestigious company this year. Perhaps he should have diversified his interests, but it’s too late to fix this year’s placement.
