While some people multiply their wealth, others lose positions in the ranking. The current President of the United States Donald trump managed to fall on 664 points, taking only 715 line. In 2018 he was at 51 positions.
Experts believe that this occurs for several reasons. First, political career is not particularly conducive to the promotion of his business. Because of the constant scandals and controversial situation in the country, the brand called “trump” becomes less attractive.
In addition, the real estate owned by the family of the President, lose their relevance because of the rapid growth of Internet Commerce. Large companies that are longtime customers of The Trump Organization, continue to refuse further cooperation.
In addition, since, as trump took over as President, the company almost ceased to conduct transactions abroad. This also had a negative impact on the American business leader who has kept his status on last year’s level of $3.1 billion. However, the lack of growth has proved to be disastrous, given how quickly other businesses multiply their assets.
In the ranking of 2019, there was another significant event. American model and businesswoman Kylie Jenner is the youngest billionaire in history by Forbes. The girl is only 21 and she is already listed in the list of the richest people in the world.
