First Lady Melania Trump managed to rack up a $95,050 hotel bill for one day in Cairo during her multi-nation tour of Africa in October.
According to federal spending records, Trump and her entourage spent the day at Semiramis Intercontinental Cairo, located right along the Nile. Yes, the day in Cairo. Not an overnight stay. A single day. In fact, it wasn’t even the whole day, or half a day: Quartz reports that a spokeswoman for Trump said she only spent six hours in Cairo.
A great clarification that makes all of this much more sensible.
