While Trumpís interests were put into trusts, he remains the beneficiary of those trusts.

This Trump property thing is a seriously bad look for Trump and his administration

A USAF crew might have stayed at Turnberry, however in terms of the $11 million on fuel at the Prestwick Airport, as already pointed out in the articles I posted on the first page, the vast mahjority had nothing to do with Trump, and the base is used by both US Special Gorces and US Military Contractors.

Can you provide evidence that Trump owns the airport and is profiting personally?

The Scottish government owns the airport thatís not the problem. The fact that Trump dropped off personal supplies at his resort is.

Elijah Cummings is just playing his usual sleazy games...

According to the Guardian, Prestwick signed a three-year basing and fuel supply deal with the Defense Logistics Agency... in October 2016.

The contract to use Glasgow Prestwick as a fuelling stop was signed under which presidency ?

The big difference between the treatment of Trump and the treatment of Obama was that the MEDIA covered for and largely coddled Obama. They are outfight HOSTILE to Trump. Disgusting.

So, it is OK with you for the USA taxpayer to pay more for fueling a military plane at a private airport than on a USA base that was not far away.

Legal does mean right. They did not have to do it.

Blame Obama... his administration inked the deal with Prestwick airport.

So Russia failed. Stormy failed. Trump is "racist" is failing, so now "Trump pays too much for gas" is the new mantra? Such a scandal. I doubt his Administration will survive.
