US Presidents- Meet The Poorest Of All American Leaders (Photos)

Turning up as the 200th Richest according to Forbes List,Trump is believed to have inherited $40 million when his father died in 1974. Bloomberg News estimates he is worth $2.9 billion. Trump claims he’s much richer than that, however, because he believes his name alone is worth $3 billion.

Hillary Clinton, isn’t a billionaire, but she is a wealthy woman. In 2014, the former secretary of state’s book advance was estimated to be in the $14 million range. Along with her husband, former President Bill Clinton, her net worth is estimated by 24/7 Wall St. to be between $11 million and $53 million.

Looking back at all of America’s leaders, the nation’s first president, George Washington, was also the richest. He’d be worth $525 million in today’s dollars, according to a recent estimate. President Barack Obama wasn’t born rich, but he’s worth about $5 million, most of that income coming from book royalties.     But not all U.S. leaders are wealthy men. President Harry S. Truman may have been the poorest of all U.S. presidents. He was worth less $1 million in today’s dollars.

Fortunes could be fickle, though, even for the rich and powerful. Some of the wealthiest presidents faced financial hardship, and they also appear on the lists of poorest commanders in chief. For example, Thomas Jefferson, who lived an extravagant lifestyle, was deeply in debt toward the end of his life and, after his death.
