Donald Trump Drops Off Forbes’ 400 Richest Americans

Donald Trump Drops Off Forbes’ 400 Richest Americans (Updated: Thursday, 7th October 2021, 12:34 AM)


Former U.S. President, Donald Trump is no longer in Forbes list of 400 richest Americans.

Forbes said Trump is now worth an estimated 2.5 billion dollars, leaving him 400 million dollars short of the cutoff to make this year’s 400 lists.

This was contained in a message on Forbes’ verified Instagram page on Tuesday night.

Forbes said the real estate mogul is just as wealthy as he was a year ago, when he stood at No. 339 on the ranking, but he is down 600 million dollars since the start of the pandemic.

It reported that technology stocks, cryptocurrencies and other assets have thrived in the COVID era.

But big-city properties which make up the bulk of Trump’s fortune had languished, knocking the former president out of the nation’s most exclusive club.

“The market’s wild swings and stunning rise since the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic had made many millennials avid investors, and nobody had benefited more from their obsession with meme stocks and cryptomania than a few of their young peers,” it reported

In all, 15 members of The Forbes400 are under 40, up from 12 in 2020, with six of them appearing on the list for the first time.

The 15 include 29-year-old Sam Bankman-Fried, who’s amassed an astonishing 22.5 billion dollars via his FTX, the cryptocurrency exchange.

Rival exchange Coinbase’s co-founders Brian Armstrong (38) at 11.5 billion dollars and Fred Ehrsam (33) at $3.5 billion; Robinhood Markets’ 37-year-old co-founder Baiju Bhatt at 2.9 billion dollars

Mark Zuckerberg (37), is by far the wealthiest person in this group with a 134.5 billion dollars fortune.
