Amid a slew of Monday morning tweets attacking enemies and heralding his own achievements, the president said he had "nothing to do" with Pence's stay and "knew nothing" about official use of the airport near his course.

Again, aside from the elephant in the room-the President of the United States owns hotels with his name on them--this would a non-story.

Pence recently visited Ireland on a two-day trip and made a decision to stay at Trump International Golf Links at Trumps "suggestion" as opposed to using a hotel in Dublin, according to a spokesperson for the Vice President.

Eric Lipton's NYT report "Trump Had Deal With Scotland Airport That Sent Flight Crews to His Resort" establishes that the Air Force was routinely flying in and out of that airport and staying in the hotel associated with Trump's golf course long before he was President.

He also addressed controversy over Vice President Mike Pence's stay at his Irish resort in Doonbeg.

If they want the investigations, they should use Democrat dollars rather than ours.

Democrats have accused the Vice President of funnelling USA taxpayers' money into a Trump business and have requested documents from the White House, the office of the Vice President, the Secret Service and the Trump Organisation.

Trump Says Taliban Peace Talks Are 'Dead'
And the Afghan government has objected both to the terms of a possible agreement and to how it was negotiated with the Taliban. The details of the U.S. -Taliban deal that had been shown to Ghani last week "were not convincing", Sediqqi said.

Cummings and Raskin said in their letter (pdf) that using taxpayer money to prop up Trump's Turnberry resort would violate the Domestic Emoluments Clause of the Constitution.

In the letter to Pence (pdf), Cummings wrote that "the committee does not believe that US taxpayer funds should be used to personally enrich President Trump, his family, and his companies".

Last week, Mr Pence's chief of staff was asked if mr Trump had suggested the location.

"NOTHING TO DO WITH ME", he tweeted about the Air Force use of Turnberry, although he added that the officers "have good taste!"

"In early Spring of this year, an Air National Guard crew made a routine trip from the Kuwait to deliver supplies", Politico reported Saturday.

Air Force personnel and passengers have stayed at Turnberry since 2015, which contradicts the overall narrative of ethics violations since the overnight stays started during the Obama administration.

But, you say, "the Trump Organization" is bigger than Donald Trump.

Bush, était de plus en plus isolé au sein du cabinet du président Trump selon les médias américains. Comme souvent, le président américain a annoncé la nouvelle via un tweet.

"Despite the president's support, Prestwick Airport has continued to struggle financially", the congressmen wrote in the letter to Esper. "At some point prior to the election, I'm going to be giving out a financial report of me, and it will be extremely complete".

"It's a facility that could accommodate the team", Short said.

Donald Trump has separated himself from his household's actual property and golf enterprise.

"The incidents", Politico noted, "raise the possibility that the military has helped keep Trump's Turnberry resort afloat-the property lost $4.5 million in 2017, but revenue went up $3 million in 2018".

Mr Nadler's new rules, which are expected to be passed by the committee on Thursday, will govern how witnesses will be called and questioned and how Mr Trump's lawyers will be involved. "The Committee also requests that the Department inform the Committee by this Friday whether it will do so voluntarily or will require a subpoena".

"What is happening is the following", said Trump.

Politico's narrative is that layovers at Trump's Turnberry resort is an ethical quandary, similar to the issue of foreign officials staying at Trump-owned hotels and properties.
