These world leaders are wealthier than President Trump


Rachel Maddow might have actually broken the internet with the release of Donald Trump’s 2005’s tax returns showing that the president reported an income of $153 million while paying Uncle Sam $38 million.

That is indeed a lot of money and with an estimated net worth, according to Forbes, of $3.7 billion, Trump must think he’s pretty rich.

Does Trump know how much a soy latte at Starbucks is? I mean, it’s 2017. What’s a few billion dollars?


These world leaders might be as wealthy, if not more so, than Trump:

Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who just met with Trump. The Washington Post reports the Saudi royal family could have a net worth of $17 billion.

Forbes has previously valued the now dead Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej at $30 billion, which probably went to his son King Vajiralongkorn.

Then there’s the Sultan of Brunei who, in 2011, Forbes estimated had a net worth of $20 billion.

It’s debatable if China’s President Xi Jinping has millions of assets or $2.7 billion, according to the New York Times.

Last but not least, Trump’s BFF Vladimir Putin’s long hold of Russian power could have him racking up $200 billion dollars, according to The Washington Post.

For America, Trump is still one of the wealthiest presidents to hold office.
