The “before & after” figures below came from in a Tweet from our friend Julian Assange, an Australian citizen and founder of Wikileaks. But let’s back up for a second. WikiLeaks is an online library of secret government documents, news leaks, and classified media, all collected from anonymous sources. It publishes this information to give whistle-blowers a platform to expose hidden truths about various governments and institutions around the world. To the best of my knowledge & research, nothing ever published by Wikileaks has turned out to be false. No wonder so many in government & politics hate Assange. But back to this very interesting set of figures.
A comparative study of the net worth before running for President of the United States, and after.
- Donald Trump – $4.5 Billion
- Barack Obama – $3 Million
- Bill & Hillary Clinton – $480,000
The after (current net worth):
- Donald Trump – $3.5 Billion
- Barack Obama – $40 Million+
- Bill & Hillary Clinton – $100 Million+
How is that? Well in a reply Tweet, here is the answer.
