How many US presidents were millionaires?
Washington was surely a millionaire. Both Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe and Tyler owned large estates and had considerable wealth. Both Harrisons were from well-to-do families. Both Roosevelts, both Bushes and Kennedy were born into rich families. Hoover made a fortune as a mining engineer but started with nothing. The other presidents all had high paying jobs other than president and so became well-to-do if not exactly millionaires. With the possible exception of Andrew Johnson and those who died young, they all would have ended up as millionaires today.
