(AmericanProsperity.com) – On October 5th, the Washington Examiner reported the results of the Forbes 400 wealthiest Americans. Although it isn’t surprising to find Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Mark Zuckerberg at the top of the list, you won’t find one frequent flyer anywhere in the rankings.
Donald Trump falls off Forbes 400 rich list for the first time in 25 years

A 2021 Forbes report shows former President Donald Trump didn’t make the cut. His net worth of $2.5 billion no longer preserves his spot within the 400 richest Americans.
Senior Editor for Forbes Dan Alexander listed several ways Trump could have diversified his fortune when he first took office in a recent article. He questioned why the former president didn’t divest more real estate assets as requested by ethics officials.
Forbes’ data from 2016 to 2020 clearly shows an overall decline in Trump’s net worth. It dropped to just $2.1 billion during the 2020 pandemic. The real estate tycoon’s net worth bounced back to around $2.5 billion in 2021.
So what is the takeaway? During the entirety of Donald Trump’s tenure as the President of the United States, he lost more money than he made. That’s a sacrifice some believe shows dedication and loyalty to not only the job but also the American people.
