According to Time magazine, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was, briefly, the richest man in the world.

After a surge in Amazon stock prices, Bezo’s net worth rose to over $90 billion and surpassed that of Bill Gates. However, after the announcement of an investigation by the Commerce and Treasury Department due to potential violations of U.S. sanctions against Iran, Amazon stocks retreated.  This dropped Bezos into second place behind none other than Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg told Harvard graduates to "build great things" in his commencement speech to the university, where he developed Facebook in his dorm room

According to Bloomberg –

“Zuckerberg has earned $23.1 billion year-to-date through Monday, putting his overall wealth at $73.1 billion. The net worth of Bezos, on the other hand, is now up $19.7 billion thus far in 2017, for an estimated total of $85 billion.

In the past month, Zuckerberg’s wealth has shot up 16% as Facebook shares have soared on strong earnings reports. On Monday alone, Zuckerberg gained nearly $1 billion. He is now just $3 billion away from surpassing Warren Buffett as the 4th richest person in the world.”

There has been significant speculation as to whether Zuckerberg is preparing for a presidential run in 2020.  Last week, Zuckerberg sent those rumors into overdrive after he hired top Hillary Clinton strategist Joel Benson.

Soon after, the graffiti and hate posters began with “F*ck Zuck 2020” posters appearing in parts of California. Zuckerberg has met directly with former President Obama and claims to be committed to a universal basic income, and has called the fight against nationalism the “struggle of our time.”

Obama was one of the instigators of the “fake news” panic that has put Facebook in the establishment’s CROSSHAIRS following the election of Donald Trump.

According to a major New York Times Magazine on Zuckerberg’s previous conversations with Obama –

“Earlier that day, Zuckerberg’s staff had sent me a draft of a 5,700­ word manifesto that, I was told, he spent weeks writing. The document, “Building Global Community,” argued that until now, Facebook’s corporate goal had merely been to connect people. But that was just Step 1. According to the manifesto, Facebook’s “next focus will be developing the social infrastructure for community — for supporting us, for keeping us safe, for informing us, for civic engagement, and for inclusion of all.”
