Trump Ordered Mike Pence To Stay At His Golf Club In Ireland At taxpayers Expense, So He Did
President Donald Trump told Vice President Mike Pence to stay at his luxury golf club in Ireland, so he did.
The vice president’s chief of staff confirmed Tuesday that Trump ordered Pence to stay at Doonbeg, which is a three-hour drive away from his official meetings in Dublin, on the taxpayer-funded overseas trip.
“I don’t think it was a request, like a command,” said chief of staff Marc Short. “I think that it was a suggestion.”
“It’s, like, when we went through the trip, it’s, like, well, he’s going to Doonbeg because that’s where the Pence family is from,” Short added. “It’s, like, ‘Well you should stay at my place.’”
Take a look at the exchange below:
