President Obama famously came under the radar when he said “If you have a business- you didn’t build that” quip during his 2012 presidential campaign.

While Twitter was busy trolling this news, Kylie drew comparisons with Oprah Winfrey and Mark Zuckerberg who are called as the perfect examples of being ‘self-made’.
As soon as news came out, Jenner’s fans on Twitter started a GoFundMe page to raise the $100 million dollar she needs to cross the threshold into the billionaires club.
Comparisons were even drawn between Donald Trump and Kylie Jenner by Forbes. Forbes a few years ago, published a cover of Donald Trump calling him a ‘self-made’ billionaire, which drew similar criticism.
