Trump's 17 cabinet-level picks have more money than bottom third of American households combined

Temporarily embarrassed millionaires will be pleased to know that Donald Trump has filled his cabinet with people just like them: the "17 cabinet-level picks have more money than a third of American households combined," reports Quartz.

The 17 people who US president-elect Donald Trump has selected for his cabinet or for posts with cabinet rank have well over $9.5 billion in combined wealth, with several positions still unfilled. This collection of wealth is greater than that of the 43 million least wealthy American households combined — over one third of the 126 million households total in the US.
