What is the income of Clinton's speech?
Clinton ---- former president of the United States, permanent statesman and economist, old saxophone player, good-looking guy, the president is good, and the speech income after leaving office is also considerable. We can see from it that a level is a level
It is not new for the outgoing president of the United States to make money by speaking, and President Clinton is a master.
However, Clinton's speech income in the past six years, disclosed by the American media on the 23rd, is still surprisingly high.
It is estimated that Clinton's personal income from speeches at home and abroad after leaving office is close to US $40 million, in addition to the speeches for fundraising for charitable organizations.
Even Clinton himself said proudly that he was in debt when he left the White House, but now he has become a "multimillionaire"!
An average of one speech a day
According to the Washington Post, the income is calculated based on the family property and related interviews recently declared by his wife and Senator Hillary Clinton who decided to participate in the US presidential election in 2008. According to statistics, Clinton delivered 352 speeches in the past year, close to the average of once a day. However, some of these speeches are gratuitous, and only about 20% of the income from paid speeches is in Clinton's private pocket, while the rest is mainly donated to the non-profit Clinton Foundation. The foundation is a non-governmental organization established after Clinton left office. At present, it has cooperated with more than 50 countries in Africa, Asia and other regions to carry out AIDS treatment and care activities.
The income of a speech is close to the president's salary for one year
It is reported that Clinton's remuneration for each speech is usually as high as 150000 dollars. His two speeches in Canada set a record, with a total of 475000 dollars, more than twice his annual salary of 200000 dollars when he was president. It seems that it is really too easy for Clinton, who has excellent eloquence, to make money by speaking. When delivering a speech to a friendly audience in Kentucky, Clinton could not help boasting: "I didn't get a penny at the White House, but now I am a millionaire, and I am now the most popular person in the United States.". In fact, during the eight years when Clinton dominated the White House, he did a "loss business". Due to the "Whitewater Incident" and the high legal costs of the Lewinsky case, the Clintons left office with a total debt of 12 million dollars.
The audience is mainly large companies
Clinton's speech income mainly comes from some large domestic companies and speeches abroad. Among them, Clinton earned 1.6 million dollars from speeches abroad. Among domestic companies in the United States, Goldman Sachs Group, an investment giant, has invited Clinton to give a speech four times in the past few years, and paid him $650000 for this. In addition, Citigroup paid $250000 for a speech by Clinton.
According to Hillary Clinton's latest property declaration document, after paying off her previous debts, her family property is currently between $10 million and $50 million. American media expect that Hillary Clinton's strong "family" will undoubtedly help her run for president.
