Since he left office, Donald Trump has continued to regularly hold political rallies. They scratch a pretty big itch for him as he gets to feel powerful and bask in the love of his supporters. However, the problem is that he’s not putting enough money in his own pockets.
Trump tried to rectify this by going on a speaking tour with Bill O’Reilly. Ticket sales weren’t all that brisk. So now the former President has gone back to the drawing board. Axios recently revealed that Trump will soon be appearing as a ‘motivational speaker,’ with the most expensive tickets selling for nearly $5,000.
According to Axios, tickets will be sold in tiers. People will be able to attend the events for as low as $9, but they would have to watch from a conference room. Those who spring for $4,995 will be in the Presidential Tier. This will entitle them to early access, premium seating, and a photo with Donald Trump Jr.
Chris Widener, the organizer of the American Freedom Tour, explained, “the American Freedom Tour is not a Republican-aligned event or a Trump-aligned operation.” He continued, “both President Trump and Donald Trump Jr. are incredible speakers, and we are happy to have them on our tour.”
