Forbes magazine came out with its current list of the world’s most wealthy and President Trump is on the list again. However, the President’s net worth decreased by $1 billion during his Presidency. No person in possibly world history has given up more net worth to serve his country.
Dan Alexander at Forbes reported:
From the time he entered the White House in January 2017 to his departure a few months ago, Donald Trump’s fortune fell by nearly a third, from $3.5 billion to $2.4 billion.
It’s also reported that the President’s ranking of the world’s wealthiest dropped 300 places during his Presidency.
This makes President Trump the most giving and selfless person in likely world history to give up the most net worth to serve his country.
But unfortunately, Alexander is one of many reporters who are giving Forbes a bad name. This publication used to be conservative but it has gone to the dark side along with the media over the past few years.
Alexander tries to claim that the President’s net worth went down because of bad business decisions (the man making a few thousand a month criticizing a billionaire).
Every investor at some point has kicked himself for holding an asset too long. Perhaps none, however, has made such a monumental miscalculation. By refusing to divest his portfolio upon taking office, Trump bogged down his presidency with ethics issues for years, while also missing a chance to cash in on a market boom he helped propel.
What a total lack of intellect, reason, and history Alexander shows. President Trump couldn’t throw his money in the markets. If he did, he’d been criticized for every move he made to shore up the economy after the abysmal Obama years and media writers like Alexander would claim foul.
The President gave up doing any deals during his Presidency and he gave up his annual President’s salary while he served. He did much to prevent even the perception of impropriety. Yet the media still made up lies about his making money during his Presidency.
Unlike Obama, Biden, and the Clintons, who made millions during their time in public office, President Trump did things honorably. He gave more than arguably any politician in our lifetime to this country and was only given complaints by the likes of people like Alexander.
