NEW: Air Force crews—totaling more than 60 service members—have stayed overnight at Turnberry on least 4 occasions, 2 more than previously reported. Prestwick Airport arranged for free rides to & from the resort—and packed lunches!—on at least 1 occasion. politico.com/story/2019/09/…
The crew member I spoke to called it “odd” how Prestwick appeared to arrange logistics in a way the Air Force usually would. The airport, which has seen a dramatic uptick in US military plane stopovers, even booked the rooms at Turnberry, they said.
A spokesman for the airport did not dispute that recollection. “Like all airports, we provide a full handling service for customers and routinely arrange overnight accommodation for visiting aircrew when requested,” the spokesman told POLITICO. politico.com/story/2019/09/…
Now Democrats want to make sure these Air Force crews never again stay at a Trump Turnberry. On Monday, lawmakers began stumping for the Senate to adopt an amendment that would bar the Pentagon from spending money at nearly five dozen Trump properties worldwide.
