The Air Force said the Turnberry resort was less expensive than a nearby Marriott and that both were under the per diem rate of $166. 'In this case, they made reservations through the Defense Travel System and used the closest available and least expensive accommodations to the airfield within the crews allowable hotel rates'. The committee has asked the Pentagon about why the military has spent $11 million on 629 purchases of fuel since October 2017 at the commercial airport closest to Turnberry; the fuel would have cost less at a U.S. military base.

Thomas added that Trump Turnberry was 54 miles away from the airport at which the plane was being refueled, but said "that is not a remarkable distance to travel to receive government rate lodging".

In response, numerous Democrats claimed the report proved corruption.
