Air Force reviews hotel choices after Trump resort stay

So far this year there have been 259 stops, 220 of them involving overnight stays.

Today Donald Trump tweeted that he was not involved. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News. Is it different that if I go and stay or eat at a Marriott here or eat at the Trump.

Mr Cummings is also concerned about Prestwick Airport, looking into purchase orders for fuel totalling $11m (€9.9m) and reports that the airport offered cut-rate rooms for select passengers and crew, as well as free rounds of golf at Turnberry to visiting United States military and civilian air crews.

The House Oversight and Reform Committee says expenditure at Prestwick airport has "increased substantially" since Mr Trump came into office.

Prior to posting about the resort stories, Trump once again blasted away at the media for its one-sided coverage of his presidency.

Politico reporters Natasha Bertrand and Bryan Bender raised the possibility that Trump is trying to keep Prestwick in business and the resort afloat.

While last week was dominated by criticism of Vice President Mike Pence staying at a Trump property in Ireland, this weekend, all eyes turned to reports that an Air National Guard crew stopped at Trump's Turnberry resort in Scotland on their way to bringing medical supplies to Kuwait.

"We will not allow Trump's continued obstruction to stop us from delivering the truth to the American people", Mr Nadler said.

Trump added: "Mike's family has lived in Doonbeg for many years, and he thought that during his very busy European visit, he would stop and see his family!"

But he agreed that the decision to place Air Force crew members at a hotel owned by Mr. Trump's family had created questions that the Defense Department needed to address.

"But he was there before I bought it, I believe, he said".

Trump "played a direct role in setting up" the deal at the time, the Times said. "I don't know that that's different than anything else. I didn't know about that".


Air Force chiefs have "directed Air Mobility Command [AMC, which oversees all Air Force transport around the world] to review all guidance pertaining to selection of airports and lodging accommodations during worldwide travel", according to a statement to the BBC from Brig Gen Edward Thomas.

But having service members spending the night at "higher-end accommodations, even if within government rates", might not be advisable.

Air Power journeys to the airport, nevertheless, have elevated annually President Trump has been in workplace, the Instances says.

"We should not stand by as Scotland's good name is tarnished by association with the toxic Trump brand".

But Mr Matheson said: "It's entirely a matter for Congress and USA authorities to conduct any investigation they see as appropriate". "Or do we need to rethink that?" According to U.S. Air Force officials, U.S. military aircraft are authorized to land and refuel at private airports with whom contracts have been arranged. "It does not matter if they pay the government rate or a discounted rate".

The U.S. Constitution bars government officials, including the president, from receiving financial benefits known as emoluments from foreign or domestic governments, without approval from Congress. Prior to that it had only been a "divert" location if other us military air facilities were unavailable.

On previous trips to the Middle East, the C-17 had landed at US air bases such as Ramstein Air Base in Germany or Naval Station Rota in Spain to refuel, according to one person familiar with the trips.

And the Air Force, seemingly independently and coincidentally, was starting to use the airport more often and was among those being referred by their staff to Turnbury.

"There is no commercial relationship between Prestwick and Turnberry".

Congressional investigators have threatened to subpoena the Trump Administration over documents related to military lodging at the Turnberry golf resort in Scotland. However, he makes regular use of his own golf courses in Florida, New Jersey and Virginia. In the March incident, a local agent under contract with the U.S. Government helped with the reservations and indicated that there wasn't a room available closer to Prestwick. And both were under the per diem rate of $166.
