Eric and Donald Trump Jr. traveled to Dubai this week on business related to the family’s company, costing taxpayers more than $70,000.

Government purchase orders outlining the security costs for the Trump sons on their trip, including hotel stays for Secret Service agents and car services, reveal the total cost to taxpayers was at least $73,000, CBS News reported.

The Trumps visited Hussain Sajwani, a Trump Organization Middle East business partner. Sajwani tweeted a photo of himself with the Trump sons, noting they were “celebrating [his] daughter Amira’s wedding.”

A spokeswoman for the Trump Organization told CBS News that the Trumps also went to Dubai to visit with “the team at Trump International Golf Club, Dubai.”

{mosads}”The Secret Service is conducting a protective operation in the [United Arab Emirates],” a Secret Service spokesperson told CBS News. “As a matter of practice we do not comment on the specifics of protectee’s trips.”

President Trump turned over management of the Trump Organization to his adult two sons before taking office, but has still come under scrutiny over his family profiting from the business while he is in the White House.

The family faced criticism last year after the adult Trump children cost taxpayers at least $330,000 in security costs on a ski trip to Aspen, Colo.
