Trump is now doing motivational speaking gigs — with tickets that cost up to $4K

Former President Donald Trump is jumping on the paid speaking circuit by joining the American Freedom Tour, Axios reports.

The group’s founder, Chris Widener, didn’t confirm Trump’s speaking fee to Axios, but said “most all of our speakers get paid an honorarium for the event.”

Trump has reportedly already completed two speaking gigs in Houston and Sunrise, Florida, and his next gig will be in Austin, Texas, this coming Saturday. Tickets start a $9 for the “Satellite tier” and up to $4,995 for the “presidential tier” which includes a photo op with Trump and prime seating at his events.

The “Patriot Tier, which includes Patriot tier, which includes a photo with Trump and a seat at a roundtable with former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, does not have a price listed.

“Motivational speaking is a roughly $2-billion-a-year industry that reaches hundreds of thousands of Americans. But it has gotten little attention from famous pols — at least while they’re still in the political fray,” reports Axios.
