The Clintons and the Obamas were among the richest people in America before the Great Recession, and the former president, who made a fortune building a real estate empire in Chicago, has been one of the most successful of them.
The two men, who both were married to presidents, have amassed billions of dollars.
Their family business, the Obams Foundation, raised billions of foreign aid dollars, the Clintons Foundation and other entities, and, of course, Bill and Hillary Clinton.
The Obamas’ net worth is $5.9 billion, according to the Washington Post, while Bill’s is $6.7 billion.
The Clintons have donated more than $30 million to their foundation.
But while their philanthropic efforts have been enormous, their wealth has grown to be one of its greatest liabilities, according a new report from the Center for Public Integrity.
The Clintons have amassed a net worth of $8.3 billion, or almost $1 billion more than their father, Bill Clinton, who amassed $3.6 billion, the report found.
Their wealth has soared because of their use of political power, and their business interests, which they have used to benefit themselves, the Center found.
They have used their wealth to buy influence, and that influence has helped them build a global empire and make billions of off the backs of others.
That includes a vast network of family businesses that run from the White House to Arkansas and the Little Rock suburbs, according the report.
The Obamas have amassed more than a billion dollars in assets through their businesses, according data compiled by the nonprofit OpenSecrets.
That figure is likely inflated because the Clintons do not release their personal financial information.
They were forced to disclose the details of their assets and liabilities in a financial disclosure form filed with the federal government in 2014.
