Trump drops 220 spots on the Forbes Billionaires List

Source: cnn

President Donald Trump is the nation's first billionaire president -- but he's not as rich as he used to be, according to the Forbes 2017 Billionaires List published Monday.

The magazine put his net worth at $3.5 billion, down $1 billion from the rankings it issued a year ago.

As a result, his position on the Forbes' ranking dropped 220 spots, leaving him tied with 19 others as the 544th richest person in the world.

Forbes said that much of the decline in Trump's net worth is due to softness in the midtown Manhattan real estate market.

1. If there is anything he cares about more anything else, it is his money.

This will certainly unhinge him further and perhaps beyond repair.

15. "Net Worth" is traditionally defined as the difference...

between total assets and total liabilities for a business or individual, which means that outstanding loans and other debt are taken into account.

That being said, all financial information for individuals will not be directly attainable from public sources. Wikipedia has a description of Forbes' methodology here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_World%27s_Billionaires#Methodology

Trump has insisted in the past that he is worth more than what these surveys generally estimate, because he imputes a great financial value to the 'Trump Name', which Forbes of course does not include. Last year, he insisted that he was worth twice as much as Forbes estimated because of the 'name'.

10. Bill Gates leads the list for the fourth year in a row, with a fortune of $86 billion, $11 billion m

Trumpy has a LONGGGGGGGGGGGGGG way to go to catch up with Bill G.

..........Microsoft founder Bill Gates leads the list for the fourth year in a row, with a fortune of $86 billion, $11 billion more than last year. Investor Warren Buffett claimed the No. 2 spot, and Amazon chief executive Jeffrey P. Bezos was third (Bezos owns The Washington Post).

16. +1000

'Cause typically that money comes from somewhere... usually from other people's pockets, their pensions, their savings accounts, their children's college funds, their retirement, etc.

21. I've been looking at the list

I'm up to number 1,000 and the net worths are still in the $2.1 billion (that's 2001 million) range.
Number 1000 is Joseph Grendys, an American who's in the poultry business. I'm amazed at how many mainland Chinese there are on the list.
To put billionaires in perspective, Queen Elizabeth II has an estimated net worth of $550 million.
So the Queen is only halfway there.
