JUST IN: Obama Makes $3,000,000 In 2 Hours…

Former President Barack Obama made his highest-paying appearance yet in his post-White House life, speaking at the Global Food Innovation Summit on Tuesday.

Express reports:

President Obama flew into Italy’s business capital Monday, and according to local media headed straight for the extravagant Park Hyatt hotel, which can cost up to $9,250 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.

Before the speech, the former Commander-in-Chief also took a private tour of the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana museum, and the city’s cathedral.

President Obama has enjoyed weeks of holidaying since leaving Washington on January 20, including kite-surging lessons with Richard Branson.

In a move that was highly criticised even by former colleagues, he picked up $400,000 last week for a speech to Wall Street bankers — which he accepted in September while he was still President.

President Obama gave his two-hour speech in Milan at Seeds and Chips, a conference that discussed the impact that “technology, innovation and climate change have on food availability and production worldwide.”
