[Ed. – The guy who once said ‘you can have more money than you need’ now presumably has more money than he needs. What are his plans?]
Former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama are a busy couple.
From speaking at events around the world to writing memoirs and signing a massive production deal with Netflix, the Obamas’ life after the White House has been full and very lucrative.
These endeavors — along with the six-figure pension all former presidents receive — have significantly contributed to the Obamas’ net worth, which is at least $40 million, according to a 2018 GoBankingRates estimate. The New York Post recently pegged their fortune much higher, at $135 million.
From the time Barack joined the US Senate in 2005 to the end of his presidency, he made $20 million alone from his presidential salary, book royalties, and investments, Forbes reported. And based on all the projects the couple has taken on in the short time since leaving the White House, we can only expect them to make many millions more.
