2021, the year Trump fell among billionaires
If Franklin Graham writes these few words, it is because the pastor discovered the 2021 ranking of billionaires drawn up by Forbes. Surprise: Trump went from the 1,001st place in 2020 to the 1,299th in 2021. According to the magazine, the former president would have spent nearly a billion dollars to try to be re-elected; in 2017, Donald Trump had a fortune estimated at 3.5 billion dollars against 2.4 billion four years later.
After his election, Donald Trump refused to part with his companies, which had been criticized in the name of ethics. But it could be that this contributed to its fall in the Forbes ranking: the magazine calculated that if it had simply liquidated its assets and invested the money in the S&P 500, one of the American stock markets, it would be today. richer by 1.6 billion dollars.
