With their new Netflix Series, lucrative book deals and speeches aplenty, the Obama's are en route to becoming billionaires.
Take Michelle Obama's book deal. She was paid a $65 million advance on the book that has sold 725,000 books thus far.
As for how much the Obama's make for their speeches? Michelle reportedly commands $225,000 for her speeches. The former president makes $400,000 per speech. Barack Obama also makes a $207,800 annual presidential pension.
According to The New York Post and Forbes,
"Forbes estimated the couple made $20.5 million in salaries and book royalties between 2005 — when Barack Obama became a US senator and they first arrived in Washington — and 2016. They are now worth more than $135 million. And that figure does not include the cash they are raking in for public speaking."
