And then, of course, you have ex-E.P.A. chief Scott Pruitt, who had to fly in the part of the cabin where the champagne is free in order to avoid people being mean to him, and allegedly insisted on staying in hotels that far exceed the US government's per diem, sometimes by as much as 300 percent.All of which is to say, First Lady Melania Trump apparently took one look at others' ridiculous waste of taxpayer money and said: Pshhh, I can beat that.

Rooms at the luxury hotel range from $119 to $699 per night, according to the Semiramis Intercontinental Cairo's website.

The Trump Organization did not dispute The Scotsman's report that the USA government paid $68,800 to Turnberry to cover the cost of Trump's visit.

US First lady Melania Trump has decided not to hit the campaign trail alongside her husband President Donald Trump, as he spends the last days before the November 6 midterm elections criss-crossing the country. The hotel has a rooftop pool, fine dining, and a terrace with "stunning views of the sunset over the Nile". Melania arrived in Cairo on October 6.

Until now, the first lady had been more focused on promoting her Be Best initiative, which deals with issues such as child welfare, opioid abuse and online bullying.

During the trip, the first lady was also criticized for wearing a pith helmet, a hat most commonly associated with colonialists.

The Trump family has previously been criticised for costing taxpayers large sums of money.

In September, TMZ reported that President Donald Trump's golf cart rentals have cost taxpayers more than $US300,000 since he took office.
