Photos: Check out the salary levels of the world's most powerful leaders | Singapore, Russia will shock you...
Here is a compilation of what some of the world's most powerful leaders earn each year.
The world leaders below all form part of the G20 that recently met in Germany.
America’s Donald Trump, Emmanuel Macron of France, Angela Merkel of Germany, Canada’s Justin Trudeau, UK’s Theresa May, Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Lee Hsien Long of Singapore appear to be on top of the list of high earning leaders but who stands tall among them?
Donald Trump – USA
Trump is currently on a 400,000-dollar [307,720 pounds] a year, although he had said he would only take a dollar.
Justin Trudeau – Canada
But Trump’s earning is more than that of Trudeau, who earns 345,400 Canadian dollars (205,351 pounds)
Angela Merkel – Germany
She earns 242,000 euros, (212,387 pounds), more than what Trudeau gets.
Emmanuel Macron – France
However, Macron earns a quarter less of Merkel’s 242,000 euros but still not the least paid. He gets 178,920 euros (157,571 pounds)
Theresa May – UK
UK’s Theresa May earns even less than Macron’s 157,571 pounds. She in fact gets 150,402 pounds per year but she still earns more than some of her peers.
Vladimir Putin – Russia
Russia’s Vladimir Putin earns less than what Theresa May receives yearly. He gets 8.86m Russian ruble (114, 074 pounds).
Lee Hsien Long – Singapore
But none of them comes close to Singapore’s Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Long who walks home with a whopping 1.23m pounds (S$2.2m) every year.
