The combined wealth of those on the list, which was released Tuesday, rose 12.5 percent to $2.7 trillion, up from $2.4 trillion, largely because of a strong stock market. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' estimated $81.5 billion fortune kept him right behind Gates for the second consecutive year.

The minimum net worth to make the Forbes 400 list is now $2 billion. Richard DeVos' net worth is valued at $5.1 billion and is ranked No. 107 on this year's list. The combined worth of these 400 people who built their fortune in the U.S.is about $2.7 trillion, up from the $2.4 trillion amassed a year ago.

No. 10: Sergey Brin from Google, $43.4 billion.

Donald Trump's net worth has taken a nosedive since he turned to politics, according to Forbes.

KESQ-TV reports that the remains of two bodies were discovered Sunday on the north side of the Maze Loop Trail. According to Fox News, more than 1,000 deaths have occurred in National Parks in the last decade.


However, Trump's real estate assets in Las Vegas and San Francisco both increased in value this past year.

The Forbes 400 list features the wealthiest billionaires in the USA, but not every American with three commas in their net worth made the cut. He was no. 156 previous year.

As a candidate, Trump said his net worth was more than $10bn, but Forbes pegged that figure at $4.5bn in September 2015.

According to Forbes, the White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Trump's ranking.
