President Obama took heat from friend and foe alike by signing on for a pair of speeches at $400,000 apiece, but a mystery fee for a climate change address in Milan this week could leave those deals in the dust.
Neither Team Obama nor Seeds & Chips, the organization hosting the May 8-11 Italian summit, will say how much Obama is getting paid. That prompted wild speculation from one publication, which did a back-of-the-napkin estimation that put Obama’s payment at a potential $3.2 million.
While that number appears to have been the total cost for all 3,500 tickets to the event on how food innovation can save humanity from climate change, which went for 850 euros, or $925, a piece, it still leaves open the question of how much Obama got.
The Express replaced its previous piece with an updated story that made no mention of any speaking fee, and representatives for the former president did not return Fox News’ request for comment. Michela Gelati — a spokesperson for Seeds & Chips, — told Fox News that they did not have the information.
