Hillary Clinton and President Bill Clinton: $200,000 each
Both Clintons have been on a lucrative speaking circuit since they left the White House more than 15 years ago. Former President Bill Clinton starting making public speaking engagements soon after leaving the White House because the Clinton’s were “dead broke.”
Hillary started her paid-speaking career after her time as a U.S. senator (2001-2009) and secretary of state (2009-2013), and before beginning her current run for the presidency. While $200,000 seems to be the Clinton’s standard rate, The New York TImes reports that Bill Clinton has garnered significantly more for overseas engagements, including a $700,000 fee for a speech in Nigeria.
