Microsoft Co-Founder Bill Gates Tops World's Richest List Again

Carlos Slim Mexico's richest person

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates topped Forbes magazine's list of the world's super-rich for the fourth straight year, while US President Donald Trump has slipped more than 200 spots on the annual list.

New Zealand's richest man has climbed the rankings of Forbes magazine's richest people in the world, accumulating an estimated $4.5 billion of wealth in the past year.

Much of Trump's slide, the publication said, is linked to a drop in the value of real estate in midtown Manhattan.

Simon, 82, the co-founder of Simon Property Group, has a net worth estimated at $2.8 billion, the same as past year, Forbes said.

The three co-founders of a Greenwich hedge fund that fetched a controversial state investment past year emerged Monday as newly minted billionaires on the Forbes list, making the governor's $35 million payment look awfully smart.

Mr Trump would also have missed the big Wall Street shares rally following his election, assuming he sold off all of his stocks during last year's campaign, the magazine said.

Richest of the three new 10-figure barons is Clifford Asness, listed with a net worth of $3 billion.

Iraqi leader says Trump 'more engaged' in terror fight
Asked whether he had seen the Trump administration's plan to wipe out Islamic State, Abadi said: "I haven't seen a full plan". In the two leaders' meeting, Trump criticized his predecessor's policies in the region.

This year it took at least US$3.7bil (RM16.3bil) in wealth to make it onto the list, but only in a tie for 501th place, a group that included Hollywood director Steven Spielberg.

Tech billionaire Bill Gates met with President Donald Trump to discuss progress in programs for global health and development as well as domestic education. Warren Buffett comes in a No. 2 with $75.6 billion.

The number of people with ten-figure fortunes now stands at 2,043, which is 233 more than past year. That would be Bill Gates, who is worth $86 billion.

A record 2,043 billionaires made it to the 31st annual ranking of the world's billionaires.

Trump's dwindling net worth is going the other direction from many other billionaires during the past 12 months, who collectively saw their ranks swell to 2,043 worldwide with the addition of 233 newly minted billionaires, according to Forbes.

Overall, there were 227 women billionaires, the majority of whom inherited their wealth.

The majority of the world's billionaires are American, although the founder of Spanish clothing chain Zara, Amancio Ortega, was fourth with $71.3 billion.
