Donald J. Trump has fallen off.
Indeed, the former President of the United States and reality TV personality has been confirmed to be “$400 million short” of what was required to make it onto this year’s Forbes ranking of the 400 richest people in the country.
To be clear, Trump is still said to be worth an estimated $2.5 billion, which—by Forbes’ calculations—means he’s still as wealthy as he was one year ago. At that time, Trump was at No. 339 on the finance-focused publication’s ranking. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, Trump “is down $600 million” due to the fact that much of the ex-Apprentice host’s wealth is derived from high-level properties.
This breakdown of Trump having fallen off the the ranking for the first time in 25 years goes even deeper, including some insight on the impact of his failure to diversify at the beginning of his one-term presidency.
At the top of this year’s Forbes ranking is Jeff Bezos, of course, at $201 billion. Following close behind to round out the top five is Elon Musk with $190.5 billion, Mark Zuckerberg with $134.5 billion, Bill Gates with $134 billion, and Larry Page with $123 billion. The 400 members’ collective wealth jumped a reported 40 percent over the last year, landing at $4.5 trillion.
The bulk of Trump-centered headlines as of late have dealt with a new book from former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham, who admitted earlier this week that it was a “mistake” to work in the administration. Meanwhile, Trump has ramped up his attempt to have his permanently supended Twitter account resinstated.
