Air Force Sets Probe of Stopovers After Trump Scotland Reports

The President congratulated the seven crew members for their "good taste" after they spent the night at his luxury hotel in Ayrshire, on a stopover while flying from Kuwait to Alaska.

"Air Force leadership directed air mobility command to review all guidance pertaining to selection of airports and lodging accommodations during global travels", the Air Force said in a statement reported by the Evening Standard.

Earlier this year, the House Oversight and Reform Committee launched an investigation into why Prestwick Airport, which had been debt-ridden, has seen a substantial increase in USA military expenditures since Trump took office. "Every time you find a person landing in an airplane within 500 miles of something I own - Mike Pence, as an example - his family lives in, he actually told me he stayed there many years ago".

He also defended the Pence group's use of Doonbeg, saying the vice president wanted to visit the town because of family links, even though his official meetings were in Dublin, on the other side of Ireland.

Scottish Greens co-leader, Patrick Harvie said an investigation by a US Congressional committee into President Donald Trump's potential conflict of interest over military spending at Prestwick and his Turnberry golf resort, could see Scotland's "good global name dragged into a corruption allegation".

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.

"We provide a full handling service for customers and routinely arrange overnight accommodation for visiting aircrew when requested", the Prestwick airport mentioned in a press release.

Pointing out that it's part of the growth cycle, the FM said, "I am not going to harp on the earlier times when it has happened". The Finance Minister also assured that the government is aware of the need to respond to the troubles in the auto sector.

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

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. From 95 stopovers in 2015, at the side of 40 in a single day stays, the amount jumped to 257 remaining one year, at the side of 208 in a single day stays.

Congressional investigators have threatened to subpoena the Trump Administration over documents related to military lodging at the Turnberry golf resort in Scotland. People are traveling, it's just like any other hotel. The House Government Oversight and Reform Committee earlier said it began a probe into the decision by a C-17 crew to refuel at a small commercial airport near Trump's Turnberry resort and stay overnight at the Scotland property.

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

His comments to reporters on Capitol Hill came after a Politico report last week said that the us military had made stopovers at a Trump resort in Scotland.

Mr Rumbles said: "The Scottish Government should come clean as to how much money they are receiving from the United States military and what deals with Donald Trump's business empire have been struck on the side".

The Politico report argues that crews on previous trips to the Middle East have stopped at USA air bases in other countries where refueling would cost less than at a commercial airport.
