Obama spent eight years lecturing America about the evils of greed and capitalism. Remember – this is the same man who once famously said of Wall Street workers – at some point you’ve made enough money.
Apparently, that rule doesn’t apply to him. He made almost a million dollars for two speeches a few weeks ago and today, he’s collecting over two million for a speech in Italy.
Express UK reports:
Bit rich? Barack Obama ‘to pocket £2.5million for sold-out speech in Milan today’
BARACK Obama will reportedly pocket a staggering £2.5million (€3million) today for delivering a speech to a sold-out audience in Milan as part of his lucrative post-presidential speaking tour.
The former President, who has already earned hundreds of thousands of dollars for private speeches since leaving the White House, will make his highest-paying appearance yet at the Global Food Innovation Summit today.
President Obama flew into Italy’s business capital yesterday, and according to local media headed straight for the extravagant Park Hyatt hotel, which can cost up to £7,100 (€8,400) a night.
After bringing the city to a standstill with a convoy of 14 cars, a helicopter and a 300-strong police escort, President Obama’s entourage reportedly took over two floors of the hotel.
At this rate, Obama will be a billionaire in a very short amount of time.
Will the leaders of his party keep sowing the seeds of class war by obsessing about evil millionaires and billionaires?
