Presidential Race Becomes Competition of Fewer Assets

BagJoe Biden and Hillary Clinton have hit the campaign trail for the next presidential election. The focus has shifted away from politics and platform, and to their net worth and annual income. The race to garner support for their respective presidential bids has become a war of convincing supporters they are not the normal kind of rich. However, Biden’s claim that he does not even have a savings account has turned out to not be true, and Clinton’s assets are being inventoried in the headlines.
