Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle, a senior adviser for President Trump’s 2020 campaign, will earn $50,000 from University of Florida students’ activity fees to speak on campus.

The two, who are dating, will give a keynote presentation starting at 7 p.m. on Oct. 10 and will then answer questions from the audience for 15 minutes, according to ACCENT Speakers Bureau, the student organization planning the event.

The group uses student activity fees that amount to $19.06 per credit to pay for activities, including paying guest speakers, the Tampa Bay Times reported. Students are allowed to reserve one ticket each, and the public will be able to get any extra tickets for free.

Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle previously visited Penn State University in April to talk about the president, obstacles conservative university students face, special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and the “Green New Deal.” About 700 people attended, according to the Florida newspaper.
