Trump Jr.’s Lavish Trip To India To Sell Luxury Condos Cost Taxpayers Nearly $100K: Report
Donald Trump Jr.’s business trip to India to sell his family’s luxury condominium projects cost U.S. taxpayers nearly $100,000 in fees related to the Secret Service agents guarding him, The Washington Post reported Thursday.
Documents obtained by The Post through the Freedom of Information Act showed that the trip cost over $97,805 for hotel, rooms, airfare, car rental and overtime for Secret Service agents across the weeklong trip in February.
The newspaper reports that the Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington released a report in July that shows the Secret Service spent $200,000 on airfare, hotel rooms and other expenses when Trump Jr. and Eric Trump went to the United Arab Emirates to open a golf resort last year.
Democrats are investigating the costs of Trump’s family travel last year, but are waiting for the results of two reports from the Government Accountability Office, the House oversight committee told the Post.
The White House, Secret Service, or Trump Jr. did not return a request for comment on the report.
