This has raised almost $3,25 million for the Obama Foundation, which was set up to help further his project of ‘renewal and global progress’.
Obama made the most of his two-day trip to Italy by reportedly staying at a sprawling $20,000-a-night hilltop villa in Tuscany and a five-star hotel in Milan.
He reportedly took over two floors of the Park Hyatt hotel – where presidential suite rooms cost almost $10,000 a night.
