(Daily Caller) Representatives for Barack Obama have threatened to cancel the former president’s upcoming paid speech at a Denmark university if details of his speaking contract are released to the public.

Obama will participate in a moderated question and answer session on Sept. 28 at the University of Southern Denmark before local business leaders, university students and local dignitaries, according to Business Kolding, the event’s organizer.

But the event has already sparked criticism from citizens of Denmark’s Kolding Municipality, which is providing 750,000 kroner, or $117,000, in taxpayer funds to support the behind-closed-doors event titled “A Conversation with President Barack Obama.”

Kolding currently faces a deficit of 100 million kroner in its next year’s budget. The town’s mayor, Jørn Pedersen, justified using taxpayer dollars to fund Obama’s invite-only talk, claiming the event is effectively a marketing opportunity for the town, according to Danish news outlet JydskeVestkysten.

“At this event, current and future leaders will have an opportunity to experience Obama first hand. Everyone can expect to be inspired. And we have every reason to be proud,” Kolding Mayor Jørn Pedersen said. But Pedersen said he has been kept in the dark by the event’s organizers regarding the total cost of hosting his talk.

When pressed by a local news outlet for more information, Business Kolding said the Obama team would cancel the event outright if details surrounding his speaking contract were released to the public.

Despite efforts to keep the media in the dark, JydskeVestkyn estimates Obama will rake in up to two million kroner, or $312,000, for partaking in the event. The University of Southern Denmark anticipates that Obama’s visit will “boost” the university’s prestige.

“SDU is an international university with a strong vision. We wish to break down barriers and shape the future. We are convinced the former  President Barack Obama’s visit will give us a tremendous boost,” said Henrik Dam, the university’s vice-chancellor.

“As a regional player, this is a unique opportunity for us to support an exceptional event here in the Region of Southern Denmark. It is an event that in every possible way promotes SDU’s strategic goals of being an international university, enabling every talent and encouraging the exceptional,” added pro-vice-chancellor Bjarne Graabech Sørensen.

  1. “At this event, current and future leaders will have an opportunity to experience Obama first hand …..”

    So they will enter the event with pants down and grabbing their ankles.

    This POS never earned a $ that was not provided by Communists or tax payers.

    Ok, first of all the proper name of this event should be “A Conversation with FORMER President Barack Obama.” The way he has been conducting himself certainly has made it apparent he thinks he is still in charge. Secondly, it is super sad to see Denmark believe they will increase their university’s “prestige” in a positive way… this fraud of a “man” held zero true respect among the nations, even with our enemies. They nearly all laughed through their noses at his awkward fumbles as a “world leader”. I hope someone leaks the contract – I doubt the tax payers will be nearly so “inspired” by the whole thing.

    I, for one, would love to see this contract, bring it on! This is the Danes way to pay for services rendered whilst he, Obama, was in office all neatly packaged under the guise of a ‘talk’ and with taxpayers money!

  4. Better if he doesn’t get the opportunity to spew his contrived poisonous diatribe around anywhere at all… “never pay the rat with a gold tooth”… that’s for suckers…

      Very true – if he bad-mouthed our nation while in office, imagine what rubbish he’s got up his sleeve now.
