Eric and Donald Trump Jr. made their way to Dubai this week on business connected to the family’s company, costing taxpayers over $70,000.
Government purchase orders detailing the security costs for the Trump’s on their trip, which included hotel stays for Secret Service agents and car services, reveal that the overall cost to taxpayers stood at least $73,000, CBS News revealed.
Eric and Donald Trump Jr. paid a visit to Hussain Sajwani, a Trump Organization Middle East business partner. Sajwani shared a photo of himself with the Trump sons, explaining that they were there “celebrating his daughter Amira’s wedding.”

A spokeswoman for the Trump Organization explained to CBS News that the Trumps also visited Dubai to speak with “the team at Trump International Golf Club, Dubai.”
“The Secret Service is conducting a protective operation in the UAE,” a Secret Service spokesperson explained to CBS News. “As a matter of practice we do not comment on the specifics of protectees’ trips.”
President Trump handed over the management of the Trump Organization to his two sons before he took office, and has come under fierce scrutiny over his family profiting heavily from the business while he is in the White House.
The family faced backlash last year after the Trump children cost taxpayers at least $330,000 in security costs during a ski trip to Aspen, Colorado.
