President Donald Trump surfaced on a list of 400 names this week. As the list goes public, there’s one reason liberals don’t want you to see it.
Forbes has again released their list of richest Americans, and the most noteworthy takeaway this year is about President Donald Trump’s ranking. Trump was worth $3.7 billion in 2016 but has taken a significant financial hit since then, mainly because of the fact that he was elected president in November.
“It was another record year for the wealthiest people in America, as the price of admission to the country’s most exclusive club jumped nearly 18% to $2 billion,” accounts Forbes. “Even at these new heights, entrepreneurs are breaking into the ranks for the first time as they mint fortunes in everything from telecom to booze to fishing,” the American business magazine continued.
“There were 22 newcomers, 14 of whom are self-made entrepreneurs,” adds Forbes. “Among the most notable: Arizona iced tea cofounder Don Vultaggio; Netflix cofounder Reed Hastings; Tito Beveridge, the creator of Tito’s Handmade Vodka; Chuck Bundrant, whose Trident Seafoods sells his fish to places like McDonald’s and Burger King; and Rocco Commisso, founder of cable TV and broadband firm Mediacom and owner of the New York Cosmos, a soccer club based in Brooklyn.”
Is it any question that having a billionaire businessman at the helm of the most powerful country in the world has increased wealth such a tremendous amount in just one year? The stock market instantly jumped at the news of Trump’s election, and it has only carried on to break records ever since. Nevertheless, while the economy is better in general with Trump in the White House, in my opinion, the president was pressured to make a huge sacrifice so that others can prosper, as outlined by IJR.
“The most notable loser was President Donald Trump, whose fortune fell $600 million to $3.1 billion,” the Forbes report continues. “A tough New York real estate market, particularly for retail locations; a costly lawsuit and an expensive presidential campaign all contributed to the declining fortune of the 45th president.”
In spite of taking such a substantial financial hit, Trump has declined to take the usual $400,000 yearly salary usually earned by U.S. presidents, choosing rather to donate the whole sum to charity. He has even permitted members of the White House Press Corps to help him decide on which charities to bestow the money upon, so as not to seem too partisan in his donation. This is a dude who has gone to fantastic lengths for his country.
Donald Trump gave up a billionaire’s lifestyle and hundreds of millions of dollars of his hard-earned fortune to serve the United States free of charge. Nevertheless, those on the left crucify him as an evil, greedy guy. Forbes’ newest list of the 400 richest Americans flies in the face of this narrative, which is exactly why they don’t want you to see how far Trump’s name has fallen in just the timespan of one year. That would serve to blow a hole right through their remarks that he is just a self-serving fella. Share this article if you are forever grateful for President Donald Trump’s sacrifice!
