MILITARY/SCOTLAND/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP BUSINESS/TRUMP PEOPLE: “House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday [9-10-19] defended military expenditures at President Donald Trump’s properties, arguing that hotels owned by the president are “just like any other hotel’…McCarthy’s defense comes as the Air Force has launched a global review of its layover policy following a POLITICO report that crews have made multiple stays at Trump’s luxury seaside Turnberry golf resort in Scotland, an unusual stop for crews heading to and from the Middle East. On Friday [9-6-19], POLITICO revealed that the House Oversight Committee began looking into the peculiar uptick in fueling stops at a small commercial airport servicing the hotel this April after an Air Force crew stayed overnight at Trump’s resort weeks earlier.”
