Despite speculation that he might leave the “Today” show after the presidential election was over, the morning show host has signed a two-year contract and will make $20 million a year, Page Six reported Wednesday.

It is the same contract Lauer signed in 2014 — two years for $20 million.

Lauer was recently criticized after he moderated the Commander-in-Chief Forum between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in September.

Though Trump thought Lauer “did a fantastic job,” Clinton later attacked him in a fundraising email. (RELATED: Donald Trump: Matt Lauer Did A Fantastic Job Moderating The Presidential Forum)

“Not only did the moderator, Matt Lauer, fail to fact-check Trump — he then kept the conversation moving,” the email read. “The worst part is, there’s nothing new about this happening.”

“We all know that Trump lies a lot. And we all know that many outlets in the press apparently lack the wherewithall to call him out — and help voters understand that what they’re hearing from Trump isn’t normal political talk, but an unprecedented descent into unqualified nonsense from a major-party presidential nominee.” (RELATED: Hillary Clinton Is Now Fundraising By Attacking Matt Lauer)
