Donald Trump Jr. has agreed to speak at a Texas public university for $100,000 plus expenses

Donald Trump Jr., President Trump's oldest son, has signed a nonrefundable $100,000 contract to speak at the University of North Texas in Denton on Oct. 24, the public university's student newspaper, the North Texas Daily, reported Thursday evening, citing a freedom of information request. Trump will be the first speaker in this academic year's Kuehne Speaker Series, named after UNT alumnus Ernie Kuehne and promoted as "a forum to engage in conversation about topics of national and global relevance."

For his $100,000 fee, plus up to $5,000 for food, lodging, and transportation, Trump will speak for 30 minutes, answer pre-screened questions for another 30 minutes, and attend a dinner the night before the speech and a VIP breakfast and photo op the next morning. The North Texas Daily could not discover who is sponsoring this year's Kuehne series, but noted that UNT chipped in $132,500 for last year's series.
