Everyone in this melodramatic world knows about who Barack Obama is. Well, he is the current president of United States of America. Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton is next for sure. But do you know anything about Obama's salary or about his career or his Net worth? I guess you don’t, but don’t worry; we have some of the chilliest facts about him.

To start off; from all his experiences, he is one of the deserving presidents who earn $400,000 thousand; and reports suggest that his current Net worth is around $12.2 million. I know what you are wondering about, how could a president earn that much money? I thought about the same thing. Well, before Barack Obama pursued his political career; he was a civil right lawyer, a Community Organizer and a teacher. I bet you were not aware about this fact!

Furthermore, he is also a writer and has written several books. Some of the popular books include; ‘Dreams from my Father’, ‘the audacity of Hope’, of thee I sing: A letter to my daughters’, ‘Change we can believe in’, ‘Barack Obama in his own words’, and Et-cetera. Obama’s books were sold worldwide. His two major books are ‘The audacity of Hope’, 2006; and ‘Dreams from my Father’, 1995. These two books of his grossed $5.7 million and are a big source of his wealth. However, he is not considered among the richest president of United States. George Washington was the Richest of all worth $525 million and his salary was 2% of the United States total budget. But all presidents were not rich; there are some presidents who went Bankrupt, like Abraham Lincoln.

In 2008, Barack Obama was elected to the U.S’s presidency which he won against Senator John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin; and he won the re-election against Mitt Romney as well, the Republican challenger, back in 2012. And; do you know that Barack Obama is the 44th president of United States of America and is the first African-American to be elected as President? Well, it Is true.. Hard to believe, huh? Obama’s inauguration was held in 2009, January 20th. During his speech, he told the people of United States that, “Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time. But know this, America: They will be met”.

Speaking of his love life, Obama got married to Michelle Robinson in 1992 and they have two daughters, Sasha "Natasha" Obama, 7; and Malia Ann Obama, 10. Barack Obama was the son of Barack Obama Sr who was the Kenyan Senior Governmental Economist and Ann dunham who was an Anthropologist. During Obama’s first 100 days of presidency, he reached out to improve the country’s relation with Europe, Russia and China. He also ordered an outbreak on bandits of the coast of Somalia which saved more than thousands of lives. Nonetheless, he signed a command prohibiting extreme interrogation procedures and closing of the the military custody facility at Cuba’s Guantanamo Bay in a year. For all his good work, the Nobel Committee in Norway presented him the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. Pretty, impressive, isn’t it?

Well, there aren’t enough words to speak about his good deeds towards his country. A lot of stuffs have come to a regulation because of his awesome work and good leadership. One of his great works include, due to his command, Obama has been able to save more than 265 million acres of water and land. In 2012, he added up to his speech by saying, “I guarantee you, we will move this country forward; we will finish what we started and we will remind the world just why  it is that the United States of America is the greatest nation on Earth”.
