Pay Day: Bill Clinton breaks from campaign trail to deliver speech for billionaire foundation backer
Former President Bill Clinton took a break from the campaign trail Monday night to give a speech for a billionaire Democratic donor and friend of the Clinton Foundation.
The Fox Business Network reports:
A spokesman for the former president confirmed to FBN that Clinton is scheduled to speak Monday night at the Breakthroughs in Medicine & Technology Summit, which is designed to “have interactive conversations about breakthroughs in medicine and technology that will greatly impact humanity, industry and economy on a global basis,” according to the event website.
The conference, put on by billionaire surgeon and UCLA professor Patrick Soon-Shiong, featured Bill Clinton as a speaker during its first year in 2015. Soon-Shiong is chief executive at NantHealth, which has ties with The Clinton Foundation dating back to at least January 2014, when the two partnered on a computer system focused on patient access to healthcare information. – READ MORE
