Forbes has released its latest 400 list, ranking the wealthiest Americans of 2017. The biggest headline from the reveal is the plummeting of President Trump from 156th place to 248th place. His net worth has subsequently gone down a whopping $600 million USD, now making him tied with 15 other individuals at $3.1 billion USD.
It’s also worthy of note that 51 members from last year’s Forbes ranking have dropped in value, while 289 became even more wealthy.
For the 24th year in a row — and to no surprise — Bill Gates comes in atop the 2017 Forbes 400, with an estimated net worth of $89 billion USD. Gates is followed by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos with $81.5 billion USD. Warren Buffet and his $80.6 billion USD fortune in turn round out the top three, while Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg ($71 billion USD) and Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison ($59 billion USD) come in at numbers four and five, respectively.
