Donald Trump Falls 220 Spots On Forbes' "World Richest People" List

President Trump falls 220 spots on Forbes Magazine's list of the world's richest people.

Via the BBC:

Microsoft founder Bill Gates again tops Forbes’ list of the world’s richest people, in a year when the number of billionaires rose 13% to 2,043.

According to the magazine’s annual rich list, Mr Gates’ fortune rose to $86bn, from $75bn, followed by investor Warren Buffett, up $14.8bn to $75.6bn.

It was bad news for US President Donald Trump, who slipped 220 spots to 544 and must now rub along on just $3.5bn. Forbes said the $1bn fall in his wealth was due to the slow US property market.

Get ready for more pronouncements of "Fake news!" any minute now.
