Robert and Rebekah Mercer

Rebekah Mercer

Rebekah Mercer directs the Mercer Family Foundation. She served on the Executive Committee of the transition team of United States President-elect Donald Trump.

She was running Make America Number 1, a pro-Trump super PAC.

Rebekah is married to Sylvain Mirochnikoff. They have four children. Mirochnikoff, a native of France, was a managing director at Morgan Stanley. We estimate the net worth of Rebekah Mercer at US$ 50 million.

Since 2018 Mercer and his daughter Rebekah scaled-down support for the GOP and the White House.  He’s no longer playing as big a role in supporting the Republican Party as he used to.

In 2016 he was one of the top 10 political donors, by giving just over $25 million to conservative causes. But he has not donated any funds in 2018. And he sold his stake in Breitbart News, the conservative online news platform.
