While the President of the United States is one of the most esteemed titles in the world, the job actually doesn’t pay as well as one might think. While the annual presidential salary today is $400,000 a year, the president is still expected to pay for a lot of their own expenses, and the amount is a fraction of the salary most high-up CEOs and executives make. Yet, many of the men who have held the position of the presidency didn’t need the salary in the first place. In most cases, America’s past presidents have been men who either earned or inherited fortunes before ever entering the office. Read on to see how much these presidents were worth during their peaks, in terms of today’s dollars.
