According to The Wall Street Journal Donald Trump, Jr. may have profited off an appearance at an event last fall hosted by a couple aligned with the Russian government on Syria.

Trump’s private talks with the pro-Russia figure on Oct. 11 in Paris were reported in November, though new details about the meeting have since emerged.

Donald Trump Jr. was likely paid $50,000 for addressing the dinner at the Ritz Hotel in Paris, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

All American Speakers, a talent booking agency that represents Trump, lists his booking fee range as “$50,000 and above” on its website. The Journal noted it confirmed with people who had participated in past Center events that it often pays speakers 20-30 percent above their going rate.

The Trump Organization did not dispute Thursday whether Trump received at least $50,000 for his remarks in France.

“Donald Trump Jr. has been participating in business-related speaking engagements for over a decade – discussing a range of topics including sharing his entrepreneurial experiences and offering career-specific advice,” said Amanda Miller, the company’s vice president for marketing, according to the Journal.
