Former US President Brack Obama's entourage went on the offensive when quizzed about his upcoming speech to elites in a  Danish city that will be held behind closed doors and funded by the taxpayer.

Representatives for Barack Obama have even threatened that the former President would have to back out of his speech in the Danish city of Kolding if details of his speaking contract are disclosed to the public.

Obama will take part in an invite-only Q&A session with elite business leaders titled "A Conversation with President Barack Obama," and will be hosted by the University of Southern Denmark in Kolding on September 28.

"At this event, current and future leaders will have an opportunity to experience President Obama first hand. Everyone can expect to be inspired. And we have every reason to be proud," city mayor Jorn Pedersen said

Sputnik reports: According to the Danish daily Jydske Vestkysten, the event would cost Kolding authorities 750,000 kroner (some $117,000) in municipal funds.

It emerged separately that the university that will host the gathering would provide one million kroner (roughly $155,000).

Pedersen, who praised the event as a great marketing opportunity and the "biggest ever" in the city history, said its cost was "fully confidential" and he was kept in the dark about it.

Whatever the case, the authorities want to make the most of Obama's visit and plan to arrange a number of sideline events.

The move led some people to raise their eyebrows as Kolding is reportedly running a deficit of over $15.5 million in its budget for next year; netizens took to Twitter to call for transparency.
