Joe Biden

President-elect Joe Biden began his political career as a member of his local county council and went onto become one of the youngest people ever elected to the U.S. Senate. He became the 47th vice president under President Barack Obama and was elected to become the 46th president of the United States in November. But despite his long political career, Biden has made most of his money outside of politics.

Jeff Bezos

Amazon began as a small startup run out of Jeff Bezos’ Seattle garage in 1994 and has grown into an e-commerce giant worth over $1.5 trillion. Bezos remains the company’s CEO and holds a 10.6% stake, Forbes reported.

You may know that Bezos is the richest man in the world, but do you know how much he is actually worth? See what Bezos is worth.

Bill Gates

Bill Gates co-founded Microsoft — then called Micro-Soft — with his childhood friend Paul Allen in 1975. He left his daily job at the software company that made him rich in 2008 to focus on charitable pursuits through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Over the years, he has sold or given away much of his stake in Microsoft — he now owns just over 1% of shares, Forbes reported. But that share is enough to maintain his status as one of the richest people alive.

Donald Trump

President Donald Trump is the first billionaire president in United States history, Forbes reported. The bulk of his fortune comes from his New York City real estate holdings, but he also brings in money through licensing deals, golf courses and a winery.

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey has turned her earnings and success from her long-running talk show into a veritable media empire. She has her own cable channel, a stake in Weight Watchers and a multiyear deal with Apple to create content for its streaming channel. In 2020, Forbes named her the ninth-richest self-made woman in America.
