Wealthiest US presidents through the years

EMBED </>More Videos

Here is a list of the 10 wealthiest presidents, beginning with President Trump.

Our 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump is by far the richest president our nation has ever had.

The net worth of US presidents has varied greatly. Many did not have a lot of wealth, such as Abraham Lincoln and Calvin Coolidge. Some were very rich, such as George Washington, who married the widow of one of the richest men in Virginia, and John Kennedy, whose father made a fortune on the stock market -- in part using insider trading -- and by negotiating lucrative liquor importing deals after Prohibition ended.

247wallst.com said that determining the exact wealth of men like John F. Kennedy, who died at 46, was substantially more difficult.

They estimate Kennedy's net worth was $1.1 billion based on the total size of his family's estate. However, because Kennedy died before he inherited most of these funds, his net worth was enough to justify his inclusion on this list but not sufficient to surpass Washington or Trump.
