Barack Obama will be paid $400,000 for his first private speaking engagement

25 Apr 2017 17:37:00

Filed under: Finance, Business, PeopleBarack Obama is living the dream in his presidential retirement.Since leaving the Oval Office in January, Obama has gone kitesurfing in the Caribbean with Richard Branson, enjoyed a meal with Bono in New York City, traipsed around the South Pacific with his wife and Oprah on David Geffen's luxury yacht and is currently working on his tell-all memoir that reportedly came with a $60-million advance.So yeah, he's not hard up for cash. But that didn't stop Obama from raking in a reported $400,000 for his first private speaking engagement.On Monday, Fox Business reported the former commander in chief agreed to speak at a luncheon as part of an upcoming Wall Street conference run by Cantor Fitzgerald LP for the low price of $400,000. According to the outlet, that's about twice as much as Hillary Clinton would fetch for the same event.RELATED: See Obama in casual outfits post-presidencyThe conference, which will take place in September, will be attended by the very "fat cats" Obama once criticized for their "irresponsible actions" that led to the 2008 financial crisis.In a 2009 interview with CBS, Obama said of Wall Street bankers: "You guys are drawing down $10-, $20-million bonuses after America went through the worst economic year that it's gone through in decades, and you guys caused the problem. And we've got 10% unemployment. Why do you think people might be a little frustrated?"Read more... Permalink | Email this | Linking Blogs | Comments
