Donald Trump Jr., and his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former Fox News host and senior advisor to the president’s 2020 reelection campaign, will take their speaking tour to the University of Florida in Gainesville on October 10.
Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle will receive $50,000 for the event, which will be paid for out of student activity fees, according to The Alligator, the student newspaper at UF.
The event will be the first Fall event for the ACCENT Speakers Bureau at the university, according to its Facebook announcement.
“ACCENT Speakers Bureau is excited to announce our first show of the fall semester featuring Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle next Thursday, October 10th in the University Auditorium!” the Facebook post stated. “FREE tickets will become available Tuesday, October 8th at 10 a.m. in the University Auditorium box office.”

Not everyone was pleased with the announcement.
“This alumnus will be making sure his name is removed from your fundraising rolls,” tweeted a former UF student.
“UF can stop asking me for money if this is what they’re using it for,” another wrote.
“This doesn’t seem to have gone over well for you,” wrote Sue Rex. “Given the fact that we’ve just learned the man’s dad wanted to use moats filled with alligators and advocated shooting people in the legs as a deterrent to keep migrants out, surely you can see why.”
“As an alumnus and proud gator, this angers and disappoints me,” another student wrote.
