Thus, Trump's official visit to Europe probably generated a buck to his business empire, the agency said.

Mr Trump and his wife Melania stayed at the resort over the weekend following his meetings with Theresa May and the Queen. Mr Trump was shielded from members of the U.S. new media who travelled with him here to Trump Turnberry, the luxury Scottish resort where he stayed for the weekend - but not from British journalists, who captured protesters on a nearby beach shouting, "No Trump, no KKK, no racist USA" as he teed off on Saturday.

The body of a Secret Service agent who died in Scotland during President Donald Trump's overseas trip was being returned to the United States on Wednesday. A purchase order, part of U.S. federal government spending logs, shows the money was for "hotel rooms" for a "VIP visit" and was paid to a "foreign-owned business not incorporated in the U.S.".

"I have Turnberry in Scotland, which is a magical place - one of my favorite places", Trump said of the golf course, about 50 miles south of Glasgow.

In the aftermath of his election win, Mr Trump vowed to hand control of his businesses to his children.

Some of Hader's family removed his replica jersey while at the All-Star Game, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports. Milwaukee Brewers All-Star outfielder Lorenzo Cain spoke briefly to Hader in the clubhouse following the game.

It is a tactic that has alarmed ethics watchdogs, who say he is using his presidential platform to promote a resort.

"While not required, we have decided that for any United States Govt business, we charge our COST and do NOT profit from these stays".

Most of that money went towards the hotel rooms that Trump and his staff, along with his son Eric Trump, at a hotel owned by the company SLC Turnberry, which also owns the golf course.

Eric Trump, who along with his brother Donald Jr. serves as a director for Turnberry, wrote that Trump properties do not profit from USA government business.

They arrived at the resort on Friday July 13 and spent two nights there, with Mr Trump playing two rounds of golf over the weekend before leaving on Sunday afternoon.
