Forbes reported that Trump’s estimated net worth in January 2017, when he entered office, was $3.5 billion.

Forbes noted, however, that Trump is richer now than he was a year ago, when the outlet released their valuations at the beginning of the pandemic. His ranking slipped, Forbes wrote, because he could not keep pace with the other billionaires on the list who saw their fortunes rise.

Trump brushed off the results as unsurprising, saying in a statement to The Hill, “That’s the way it’s supposed to be, a politician is not supposed to make money while in office, and a rich person should come out of office with less.”
