The Air Force sent crews to President Trump’s Turnberry resort in Scotland up to 40 times since 2015, according to multiple media reports on Thursday, far more than was previously reported.

The tally is the preliminary result of an Air Force review that was started after reports emerged that an Air National Guard crew stayed at the resort in March. The reports led to an avalanche of calls from Democrats investigating the visit and probing if taxpayer funds were being directed to benefit the president.

The latest figure does not indicate how many of the stays occurred since Trump was inaugurated in early 2017.

The Air Force’s overnight stops at Turnberry have risen under the Trump administration after it reportedly reached a deal with Glasgow Prestwick Airport in 2014, according to Politico. The figure does not account for the number of people who stayed at the Trump property during the roughly 40 stays.
