Truth Social: Former prez Donald Trump net worth  rises by 35%

Over 14 months since he stepped down from office, former President Donald Trump has seen his net worth soar.

When he ran for office in 2016, his net worth was at $4.5 billion. The number dropped steadily to $2.1 billion in 2020 during his time in office.

His first year outside office, it rose to $2.4 billion, in 2021. Today, he is reportedly 35% richer since he left office.

How? The sudden jump in wealth is due to the launch of his social media platform, Truth Social.

Pegged as a conservative alternative to Twitter,  the new venture has boosted Trump’s net worth by $430 million.

The company, however, is said to be struggling with two of its top executives leaving their posts recently.

Launched in February 2022, the iPhone app is still keeping many users on the waiting list and has several tech glitches.

According to reports, Donald Trump is now  the 1012th richest person in the world.
