Hillary Clinton, an expected 2016 democratic presidential candidate, has had her wealth (or lack thereof as she would say) come under scrutiny in recent weeks.
Now, the $225,000 she is set to receive for speaking at the University of Las Vegas is bringing her under scrutiny again.
Elias Benjelloun, the student body president, and Daniel Waqar, the student government’s public relations director at UNLV don’t like the amount she is asking for.
“We really appreciate anybody who would come to raise money for the university. But anybody who’s being paid $225,000 to come speak, we think that’s a little bit outrageous. And we’d like Secretary Clinton – respectfully – to gracefully return the money back to the university or the foundation,” Waqar said on the Nevada political program “Ralston Reports.”
Benjelloun echoed those same remarks.
“When we heard $225,000, we weren’t so thrilled,” he said. “We would hope that Hillary Clinton commits to higher education… and returns part or whole of the amount she receives for speaking.”
