The U.S. Air Force has lodged crews at President Donald Trump’s Scotland
resort—Trump Turnberry—up to 40 times since 2015, Politico reports. The number,
from the preliminary results of an Air Force review, does not indicate how many
of those trips occurred after Trump became president. The number also does not
indicate how many people stayed at Turnberry on each of the trips—though crews
between five and almost 40 people have stayed at the resort in at least four
stays since September 2018.

The Air Force reportedly ramped up its overnight stops in Scotland after signing
a contract with Prestwick Airport, more than 20 miles from Turnberry, in the
final months of the Obama administration. The Air Force said the refueling stops
at Prestwick are within Pentagon guidelines, but a Monday memo said that an
internal review would be launched to look into “guidance associated with the use
of civil airports and lodging selection for aircrew at en route locations.”

The House Oversight Committee has also been probing Turnberry-related U.S.
military expenditures for the last few months over conflict-of-interest
concerns. In a Monday tweet, Trump declared the overnight stays had “nothing to
do” with him.

The airport has become economically reliant on the military refueling
flights, creating at least the appearance of a motive to steer
business to the American commander in chief.

Long stays by lobbyists and foreign officials at the Trump
International hotel in Washington, Vice President Mike Pence’s recent
stay at a Trump resort in Ireland, and the president’s highly
publicized outings to his own golf clubs have all raised similar
issues. At times Mr. Trump has appeared to promote his hotels at the
same moment that he denies steering them government money.

“NOTHING TO DO WITH ME,” Mr. Trump (the liar-in-chief crowed) tweeted
this week in all capital letters about the military stays his
Turnberry resort, before adding in parenthesis, “They have good
taste!”

Trump is a useless con artist and slimy disgusting piece of criminal
shit.
