Exactly how rich are the major candidates vying to be U.S. president in 2020? It is no secret that President Donald Trump's net worth is in the billions, but it may come as a surprise to know that several other candidates are not that far off. This is according to Forbes’ newly released report that estimates the net worth of every 2020 presidential candidate.[

To compile the list, Forbes examined various documents including financial disclosure statements, then did calculations according to pension benefits and real estate records. Some of the findings were unexpected.

Aside from Trump's $3.1 billion and Tom Steyer's $1.6 billion, the median net worth is $2 million. At the bottom of the list is Pete Buttigieg, who has an estimated $100,000.

So how do the other candidates fare? Here is the list from least to most wealthy:

  • 20. Pete Buttigieg Net worth: $100,000
  • 19. Tim Ryan Net worth: $500,000
  • 18. Tulsi Gabbard Net worth: $500,000
  • 17. Julian Castro Net worth: $700,000
  • 16. Andrew Yang Net worth: $1 million
  • 15. Kirsten Gillibrand Net worth: $1 million
  • 17. Marianne Williamson Net worth: $1.5 million
  • 14. Cory Booker Net worth: $1.5 million
  • 13. Amy Klobuchar Net worth: $2 million
  • 12. Jay Inslee Net worth: $2 million
  • 11. Bernie Sanders Net worth: $2.5 million
  • 10. Bill de Blasio Net worth: $2.5 million
  • 9. Beto O'Rourke Net worth: $4 million
  • 8. Joe Sestak Net worth: $6 million
  • 7. Kamala Harris Net worth: $6 million
  • 6. Joe Biden Net worth: $9 million
  • 5. Elizabeth Warren Net worth: $12 million
  • 4. Michael Bennet Net worth: $15 million
  • 3. John Delaney Net worth: $200 million
  • 2. Tom Steyer Net worth: $1.6 billion
  • 1. Donald Trump Net worth: $3.1 billion

No wonder mayor Pete wants to win so bad. Easiest way to bump your net worth is become President, Congressman or Senator.
It always amazes me how their personal fortunes, and those of their families soar after a few years in office.

So true! Just look at our former Muslin-In-Chief, started with less that a million and now is worth close to 100 million. All from a job that pay $400,000 annually.

Billary and Hillary left the White House, stone-cold broke. 10 years later they were living in a multi-million dollar mansion in Chapaqua, N.Y, allegedly spent about $2 Million of Chelsea's wedding, and had an estimated $212 Million in personal bank accounts. This is not counting the $2.2 Billion slush fund account they call the Clinton Initiative. Being near money can often make you money.

It's because they get to keep any leftover campaign monies; how do you think Bernie could afford 2-3 homes and a $150K Audi R8?

Book advances pay very big bucks, especially for books I'd never care to read. Bahrock and Moochelle made Million$ on their advances.

Are there actually people who buy those "memoirs" that amount to trash? and if so, Do the sale of those book produce sufficient profit to cover payment to the has been politicians?
