Salary: $1 per year
No, that’s not a typo. You read that right! Donald Trump, the current president of the United States makes only $1 per year.
Here is what happened: The basic presidential salary in the U.S.A. is $400,000 a year, which means $33,000 per month and $1,095 a day. But Trump rejected it by saying that his salary should be $1 for every year he works as a president. In fact, he wanted less but the law doesn’t allow it.
However, Trump doesn’t really need this salary since his fortune is $3 billion, and that’s enough for him to live forever without working a single day. John F. Kennedy and Herbert Hoover worked free of charge.
President of Ukraine: Petro Poroshenko
Salary: $12,220 per year
Ukraine has a president who works for $12,220 a year, means he earns $1,018 per month and only $33 a day.
But same as Trump, Petro Poroshenko doesn’t really depend on his presidential salary to “pay his bills” because he owns a fortune of $1.3 billion, which makes him Ukraine’s 6th richest person, according to Forbes.
So basically, the salary given to him for his job as a president is not really needed. Instead, it is adding more to his luxury and well-deserved life. Side note: Ukraine’s minimum monthly wage is $133, making his salary a lot less than average.
