Former President Donald Trump charges up to $4,995 for the chance to see him deliver a motivational speech at a rally, Axios reported.

The events, which draw thousands of its supporters, are organized by the American Freedom Tour, according to Axios.

Trump has yet to announce a 2024 presidential candidacy, but has flagged a potential run. The former president’s rallies have also served as a barometer of his popularity among conservatives and could help him maintain momentum for a possible campaign.

During an American Freedom Tour in March, for example, Trump promised to return to the White House in 2024.

“With the support of everyone in this room, we will take back the House, we will take back the Senate and we will take back our country, and then especially in 2024, we will take back our beautiful White House,” he said in s speaking to a crowd of rally participants in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Chris Widener, the founder of the American Freedom Tour, told Axios that “most of our speakers receive an honorarium for the event.” Widener did not reveal to Axios how much the AFT pays Trump to speak at these events.

Trump is scheduled to speak at another American Freedom Tour rally on Saturday.

For $9, rally attendees can pay to watch the event from a TV screen in an overflow room, the AFT website says. For the presidential package set at $4,995 per person, rally participants can attend a reception and take a photo with Donald Trump Jr.

Above the presidential package is the patriot, the price of which is not disclosed on the site. According to the AFT website, the patriot package includes a chance to take a photo with Trump after watching his speech from the front of the stage.

The AFT told Axios that these rallies are not a political enterprise, saying it is “not a Republican-aligned event or a Trump-aligned operation.”

On the AFT website, Trump’s partnership with the organization is described as “a celebration of faith, family, inalienable rights and God-given American freedoms.”

“Never before have America’s top conservative insiders and influencers come together for an event aimed at uniting an entire nation of silent voices,” the event description continues. “At a time when so much media and government is destroying America and its people, the American Freedom Tour celebrates America and what makes us great.”
