According to recent research, Zuma is the fourth highest paid president in the world with a salary of $223 000 per annum.
Former U.S. president, Barack Obama, is leading with a salary of $400 000 per year followed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau with $260,000, while Angela Merkel brings home $234,000.
Trump told “60 Minutes” that he would decline a salary when he takes office in January. He said that he’d rather take a dollar every year instead of the $400,000 salary currently earned by Obama.
Interestingly, Trump isn’t the first U.S. president to make the symbolic gesture of forgoing the job’s salary. Herbert Hoover and John F Kennedy are two other notable examples. Away from politics, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Google’s Sergey Brin and Larry Page are also on a $1 salary.
Let’s see how these salaries compare with other heads of state around the world? – музыка для рассказа стихов Niall McCarthy
