Bill Gate Is World Riches Man Again With Fortune of $86 bn ; Donald Trump Drop on the Forbes Billionaire List to 200 Spots

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gate has once again topped the Forbes magazine list of the world’s richest billionaires, for the fourth straight year, with a fortune of  $86 billion while US President Donald Trump slipped more than 200 spots, the magazine said Monday.
He was followed by Berkshire Hathaway chief Warren Buffett among the top 10 billionaires, a group heavily dominated by Americans, many of whom work in the technology sector.
Buffett’s wealth was estimated at $75.6 billion. Others in the top 10 included Amazon founder Jeff Bezos at No.3,with a net worth of $72.8 billion, Number four is Amancio Ortega – Inditex fashion group founder  $71.3 billion, Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg at No.5 with $56 billion, Former world’s richest man Carlos Slim comes in six with $54.5 billion, and Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison at No.7 with $52.2 billion in the bank.
Republican mega-donors Charles and David Koch are in eighth and ninth with $48.3 billion, while Michael Bloomberg rounded the top 10 out with $47.5 billion.
The US led countries with the most billionaires with 565, a product of the swelling value of the American stock market since Trump’s November 2016 election.
China was second with 319 billionaires, and Germany was third with 114.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump’s wealth plummeted down the list to number 544 with an estimated net worth of $3.5billion with $1billion being slashed from his valuation in the same list last year.
