Sounds like the resort gave discount rates to troops. Ok......



And i like how all the liberal shithead cult articles on this are trying to dupe you into thinking trump owns the gas station filling up the plane.



It will be interesting to see if the course made money on the cut rates, then trump may have an issue, if he breaks even or loses money, this story will simply vanish....

Oh great, JUST fucking great, you've learned a new word/term, shithead...

No one said that Trump
owns the aviation fuel at the local airport. The point is that the American taxpayer paid MORE for that fuel than it would have had they refueled at the normal stopover.
IF a room would have been empty otherwise ANY money gotten for it is better than ZERO.

"the military has spent $11 million on fuel at the Prestwick Airport — the closest airport to Trump Turnberry — since October 2017, fuel that would be cheaper if purchased at a U.S. military base."

$11 million?? That sure as hell means more than ONE stop wasting taxpayers' money for Trump's wallet.

Trump, Grifter-in-Chief, violating the Emoluments clause every single day.

"With the Global War on Terror and Operation Inherent Resolve drawing down, countries have become increasingly less accommodating with diplomatic clearances, quiet hour waivers etc. [and] Prestwick has none of those restrictions, and the U.K. allows pretty much blanket diplomatic clearances for us," said an Air Force instructor pilot who flies mobility aircraft.

...

He noted that he found it unusual Prestwick is the new "in spot," but added it has given some relief to other bases like Ramstein which typically see a heavy traffic of cargo aircraft and tankers, and Lakenheath, which already hosts an abundance of fighter aircraft. "Now with Prestwick we can typically cut an East Coast stop -- which saves time -- and we relieve pressure on Ramstein," he said.

"Prestwick is a very, very common stopover and crews only stay at places at or under the lodging rate ... sometimes Turnberry is under the rate, and I wouldn't blame a crew for staying there," added a former active-duty KC-135 pilot who's made a few stops to Prestwick.

The KC-135 pilot said his stops there in recent months were because nearby RAF Mildenhall, U.K., home of the 100th Air Refueling Wing, was too busy to take on more tankers.

Backpeddling, numerous people and the article suggest the fuel was prt of it.


If these aircrew members got 5 star digs at allowed rates, why the left wants to shit all over them to get trump is beyond me.


5 fucking people you all are having a hissy fit over.

so, tell me, why else would they stop in Scotland, and stay in that resort, and help keep the nearest airport from closing down from lack of business, on their way to somewhere in the Middle East, if Trump did not want them to do so? Do you deny they have flown into that airport and stayed at Trump's resort?

Are you that brainwashed? Are you a Russian bot? Answer the second question first....
