How many of the U.S. Presidents were considered to be rich by today’s dollars? A majority of them! Only nine out of the 44 presidents didn’t make it to millionaire status, while our current president is the only one to have made it to a billionaire status. Of course, his wealth was earned long before moving into the White House.
George Washington came in second for the most wealthy president, with a net worth of over half a billion dollars. He too was independently wealthy and did not earn his wealth through the presidential office. Interestingly enough, our two richest presidents so far have been the first and the last.
Five other presidents were able to hit the $100 million dollar mark for net worth, some of which were also our Founding Fathers. This infographic ranks all of the U.S. Presidents by their net worth, and also shares what their annual salary as President was during their time.
