How much are past and present U.S Presidents actually worth in today’s dollars? While only one has reached billionaire status, many of them ended up being millionaires. This infographic from TitleMax.com ranks each of the presidents by their net worth in 2016 U.S. dollars and also shares the annual presidential salary during their time in office.
The current president, Donald Trump, entered the office as a billionaire with a net worth of $3.7B but who was the second richest president in our history? The first president, George Washington, was also independently wealthy and takes that title with a whopping net worth of $580 million. Pretty impressive when your presidential salary was $25k, or $413k in today’s dollars.
On the flip side, nine of the 44 presidents did not reach millionaire status. Harry Truman is considered to be the poorest president due to failed business ventures and debts in his personal life. He was the reason the presidential salary was doubled in 1969, and he and his wife were also the first official recipients of Medicare. Does the net worth of any of these presidents surprise you?
