President Trump's adult children racked up at least $330,000 in security costs on a ski trip to Aspen, Colo., last February, according to CBS News.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spent $329,561 for the weeklong vacation taken by Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, both White House advisers, as well as Eric Trump and his wife, CBS reported citing records obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.

The Secret Service spent $26,000 on rental vehicles, as well as equipment needed to accompany the family on the ski slopes, which costed around $22,000, according to the report. 

The Hill has reached out to DHS for comment.
