House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy defended the spending of federal taxpayer dollars at Trump properties by telling reporters that there’s no difference between staying at a Marriott and staying at a Trump hotel.
At the House Republican Leadership press conference Tuesday morning, McCarthy was asked about the recent controversies surrounding government spending at Trump resorts in Scotland and Ireland.
“Do you think that the federal government should be spending money at the President’s resorts, especially when he’s not staying at them?” McCarthy was asked.
“The president’s resorts are hotels that he owns, people are traveling, it’s just like any other hotel, I know people will look at it,” McCarthy said.
“I don’t know that that’s different than anything else,” McCarthy added, and asked “Is it different that if I go and stay or eat at a Marriott here, or eat at the Trump?”
