From Kennedy To Trump: Find Out Some Of America’s Richest Presidents
People always talk about who the richest people are in this world, that is why it may seem to overrated already. In 2016, one of the most powerful countries in the world have decided who will be their next leader, and they have chosen a business magnate, Donald Trump. This now have sparked some questions on who are the richest presidents America ever had, that is why we have gathered some of them in this article. According to history, presidents before 1845, were extremely wealthy because they would often have their own plantations, and even owned a lot of slaves. So keep on reading to know more about them.
JOHN F. KENNEDY
One of the most famous American presidents. He was the 35th president of the country and has one of the most unforgettable sudden deaths because he was assassinated in 1963. Kennedy was also known for being one of the richest American presidents in the history, after coming in second after Donald Trump. Kennedy’s net worth was said to be $1 billion, and one of the reasons why he is known to be one of the wealthiest is because his parents and grandparents are actually pretty wealthy as well. His father, Joseph Kennedy was actually a businessman and he came from a family of politicians, while his mother was a socialite.
The very first American president made it into the list and he was considered to be the third richest one out of all the other U.S. president. Since George Washington was the first ever president, that would mean that he came from a family with an English descent. John Washington, his great-grandfather emigrated to Virginia and started claiming lands and getting slaves, that would mean that George himself came from a wealthy family. George’s father owned plantations of tobacco and was a Justice of the Westmoreland County Court, and even his wife inherited a similar plantation, so obviously even if he didn’t become president, he would be wealthy.
Another U.S. President that was born and raised with a silver spoon in their mouth was Theodore Roosevelt. He was also one of the most famous American presidents. Roosevelt’s mother was a socialite as well, while his father was a businessman. Despite coming from a pretty wealthy family, he was a sickly child because of his asthma, and during that time, it wasn’t really easy to recover since it has no cure. When his father died, he inherited a fortune as well, along with many other ventures such as being an author.
Last but definitely not the least is the current and the richest American president of all time, Donald Trump. This is because he is considered to be wealthier than all United States presidents combined, with his 3.5 billion net worth. Trump is the only known American president who didn’t serve the military or have been in any position in the government. Before becoming president, he is already known for being a business magnate, he is also known for being a television personality.
