Bezos tops Forbes world's richest list as Trump's wealth drops

Jeff Bezos moves to top spot on Forbes' annual billionaires list

Bezos, with $112 billion, is the first to top $100 billion on the "World's Billionaires" list. Forbes said that jump amounts to the biggest one-year gain ever.

Unlike Forbes, which made its calculations based partly on stock wealth on February 9 this year, Bloomberg updates its billionaires list every day.

At the second place is former world's richest man and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, with his wealth at $90 billion.

Meanwhile, the BJD was quick to react to Saha's claim and termed the BJP Chief is going "over confident". He said that the electoral footprint of the party is growing.

Twelve out of the top 15 richest people are from the U.S., with investor Warren Buffett in third place (with $84bn) and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg in fifth ($71bn). Last year, Pritzker ranked No. 3 in IL, with $3.4 billion. No. 4 is chairman and CEO of luxury goods company LVMH, Bernard Arnault, and his family, with $72 billion.

Donald Trump has dropped more than 200 places in the Forbes world ranking of billionaires as his fortune slumped to an estimated $3.1 billion (£2.2 billion).

According to the magazine's wealth estimate, based on the values of his various property holdings, among other indicators, Trump has lost around $400 million throughout the past year, putting his fortune at a paltry $3.1 billion.

Diane Feinstein, said in wake of the Parkland school shooting that it was time to take a hard look at mental health, "which I have so much of".

It's Bezos' first time topping the billionaire's list.

Forbes cites the stock market, New York City's struggling retail real estate market and the "president's polarizing personality" among some of the reasons for the financial decline.

Trump also shelled out $25 million in settling lawsuits that alleged his Trump University real estate courses defrauded students.

Trump fared better in Forbes's ranking than in Bloomberg's billionaires list, which put his net worth at 2.86bn dollars. Buffett is worth an estimated $84 billion.
