(TruthSeekerDaily) Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is reportedly pocketing big money for public speaking events, taking home almost half a million dollars from Goldman Sachs after giving two talks for the investment banking giant and their clients this week.

Clinton, who is considered a likely top contender for the Democratic nominee in the 2016 presidential race, is said to have received speech$200,000 per speaking engagement.

The first event was the AIMS Alternative Investment Conference hosted by Goldman Sachs last Thursday, which is a private conference that explores the latest strategies and products available to financial advisers, according to National Review.

Then on Tuesday, Clinton spoke at the Builders and Innovators Summit, which is devoted to discussing entrepreneurship and how to help innovators expand their businesses.

The news comes on the back of a NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, which said the number of people who have a positive view of Clinton has dropped from a high of 58 percent in December to 46 percent today
