No one makes billions from working hard.

A small minority make billions from legit business.

The rest make billions through corruption, invasion of territory, market manipulation, etc

Generally, the more risk you take the more reward you could get. Invading Georgia might land you a comfy country house but if it fails you might get tried for war crimes.

Most business experts seem to think Mr Trump has done a bad job taken in the full picture.

The guy had:
- The Trump name from his billionaire father.
- A damn good university education
- A small loan of a million dollars

Let's be serious. Donald thinks he's the centre of the world because daddy has been protecting him his whole life.

I hope trump nukes you when he becomes president.

Anything is possible if you are willing to work hard. Some may say that billionaires are just lucky. But we are not aware of the hard work and struggles they went through in order to become a billionaire.

Lol at Trump being the most powerful man in the world.

His power rests on finance, a simple freeze on his accounts would screw him. He's owned by the bankers. He has no power over an army, no loyalty in civil service, the people might have taken a liking to him but not enough to kill for him.

Really he's just a rich clown with as much power as most people who think power comes from wealth. It doesn't, power comes from trust by other people (like generals) which must be merited.

And amusingly Trump's assets aren't even that much, most of it rests on the inflated claims and (much like his ego) reputation of his name, which is what he inherited from daddy.

If people stopped taking Trump seriously he would vanish over night because his actual tangible assets are not that much. He's just a salesman.

It is always funny seeing posts by people who are not billionaires saying that it is impossible to get there with hard work.

Most people I know who come out with such drivel spend their whole lives on benefits.

When you sit down with multimillionaires it becomes clear that they are very driven individuals. Most billionaires do not set out to become billionaires, they end up there because they love their work. The money just comes with it. And most of them don't spend the money they do have because they are too busy working.

I wouldn't like to be one btw. Do you have any idea of how much security problems and paranoia they face? Look at Euguene Kaspersky and what happened to his Son.

There are 2 ways of being a billionaire. One is to surround yourself with an army, never go out, live a boring mundane life because everything is a security risk. Or put yourself in the spotlight. Musk is untouchable because any event would make the news and trigger immediate response. But then everything you do, eat, **** or spend on is on the news too.

**** that, no thanks.
