A record 2,208 billionaires made Forbes’ 32nd annual ranking of the world’s richest with centi-billionaire Jeff Bezos seizing the top spot for the first time.

President Trump's fortune stands at $3.1 billion, down $400 million from last year. He dropped to #766 from #544 last year, thanks to falling "values of Midtown Manhattan real estate and declining revenues at several Trump golf properties."
