The discussion of salaries is everyone’s favorite, kind of like two little girls talking about their favorite features of their dolls: It is interesting!
Just like any other working individual, presidents and prime ministers also have salaries that will help support them during and after their presidential period. Luckily, the amount of money they earn yearly is not a secret to the public, and trust us, you really want to know them.
If you think you are not getting paid enough or you deserve more, then let us tell you that what you earn in a month is way too high than what Donald Trump makes in a year, can you believe it? Meanwhile, his colleagues from different countries are basically earning a number that we can’t really call “modest”.
So, if you are interested to know who makes more money than the leader of the United States, then you should definitely continue reading.
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.
