Trump’s son involved in $97,830 scandal trip to Uruguay


Eric Trump, who along with his brother Donald Trump Jr. has been put in charge of their father’s  international business empire while he is president, has stuck U.S taxpayers with an astonishing $97,830 bill for a recent 2 days business trip to Uruguay.

The nearly $100,000 bill for the visit, which may have been as short as two nights, included some $88,320 in hotel rooms for Eric Trump’s Secret Service detail and an additional $9,510 in accommodations for U.S. embassy personnel who accompanied them, according to the Washington Post.

While in Uruguay, Eric Trump enjoyed high-priced meals, attended an “ultra-exclusive” party thrown in his honor and mingled with the real estate brokers behind the 26-story Punta del Este project, which paid between $100,000 to $1 million for use of the Trump brand name.

Documents by the Post show Trump is the sole beneficiary of the trust he set up for his holdings and can revoke it at any time, thus meaning he is continuing to profit from his brand while in office.
