Donald Trump’s very stormy week

Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence had a storm of his own. His travel plans were shuffled up after Trump sent him to Poland in his stead over the weekend (so Trump could monitor Hurricane Dorian’s path). Pence’s trip included a stop in Ireland, where he had meetings in Dublin and stayed on the other side of the Emerald Isle in Doonbeg, at his boss’ golf resort Trump International Golf Links and Hotel for two nights. 

The nearly 200-mile commute created a headache for Team Pence, who initially said the President had suggested saying there. The vice president defended the lodging decision on Tuesday by citing his family ties to the town and arguing that the Trump resort made “logical” sense because it could “accommodate the unique footprint that comes with our security detail and other personnel.”

The House Oversight Committee and the House Judiciary Committee this week sent a series of letters requesting documents and other information from the White House, the vice president’s office, the US Secret Service and the Trump Organization about Pence’s stay in Doonbeg.

And that was the week in 17 headlines.
