The 15 Most Shocking Net Worths Of Politicians

Out of all of the Presidential candidates who have been fighting for the Democratic and Republican nominations so far, most people know that Donald Trump is very rich, but would you be able to give the net worths of the other candidates if someone asked you? Typically politicians don’t make a whole of money through salary alone. They often rely on speaking engagements, book deals, and other perks that go with being in the public spotlight to really make some good money.

This list of the 15 Most Shocking Net Worths of Politicians does not only include Presidential candidates, but also other rich politicians such as Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-un, and Michael Bloomberg. We know that Donald Trump should have no trouble funding his campaign, but some of the other “little guys” like Marco Rubio had to depend much more heavily on raising campaign funds to pay for their efforts. Some of these net worths may surprise you and open your eyes as to how much your favorite candidate or politician is really worth financially.

Now that Dos Equis has done away with its “Most Interesting Man in the World” campaign, Vladimir Putin might be in the running to take that title. In addition, Putin is also one of the richest men in the world, and has been named the World’s Most Powerful person by Forbes for three years running. Putin became the President of Russia in 2012, after previously holding the same position from 2000 to 2008. During the time in between he served as the Prime Minister of Russia. He has amassed an amazing net worth of $70 billion, despite being paid a salary of only $187 thousand in 2013. Putin made $350 million when he sold his palace in 2011, and made $500 million in salary as the Prime Minister. He owns a 50% stake in Gunvor, 37% of Surgutneftegas, and 4.5% of Gazprom as well. All of that adds up to make Vladimir Putin the richest living politician in the world today.
