Kamala Harris raked in far more book royalties than Joe Biden in 2021 – taking a cool $455,000 compared to the $15,000-50,000 the president made for his tomes.

The vice president earned royalties from two books she published in 2019; $325,000 from The Truths We Hold, and another $130,000 for Superheroes Are Everywhere.

Those figures were revealed in financial disclosures published by Harris and Biden Friday. Bloodbath for civil service: 91,000 jobs will be axed as one in five staff are expected to go in huge shake-up that could save £3.5bn to ease cost of living crisis , and other top stories from May 13, 2022.PlayFull-screenREAD MORE

Promise Me, Dad, which he published in 2018, took in between $15,001 and $50,000 during the president’s first year in office.
