In the 10th edition of their annual letter, Melinda and Bill Gates took on President Trump’s “America First worldview,” with Melinda writing: “I wish our president would treat people, and especially women, with more respect when he speaks and tweets.”
According to Bloomberg, Jeff Bezos is the world’s richest person with a net worth of $105.1 billion -- eclipsing Bill Gates’ previous record. The Amazon founder and CEO’s wealth comes mostly from 78.9 million shares of his company’s stock, which were up 56% in 2017.
The Obamas’ presidential portraits have been revealed in the National Portrait Gallery. Barack and Michelle picked two African American artists, Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald, to portray them. The former first lady’s portrait “overemphasizes an element of couturial spectacle, but also projects a rock-solid cool,” writes the NYT.
