Barack Obama reportedly signed the contract to give a speech at the rate of $400,000, but the NY investment bank isn't ready to make the announcement until other details are finalized with the former president.

Hillary Clinton was taken to task during the presidential campaign past year for her speeches to Goldman Sachs in 2015.

The pay out would also come to the same amount of money that presidents have received as annual salary. The amount is almost twice the money paid to fellow Democrat and the 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

"Is there an irony here because he spoke incessantly about the income gap and is now earning from those same people he criticized?"

Those speeches became a talking point during the 2016 election campaign, and were used as a political tool by her contender Donald Trump, who is now President. Obama's speaking fee will be $400,000, which is nearly double what Hillary Clinton earned from private businesses to give speeches.
