Congressional Democrats are questioning why an Air Force crew stopped overnight–twice–at resorts in Scotland and Ireland owned by President Donald Trump. But Trump took to Twitter to deny any impropriety, saying he had “nothing to do” with the trips.

“I know nothing about an Air Force plane landing at an airport (which I do not own and have nothing to do with) near Turnberry Resort (which I do own) in Scotland, and filling up with fuel, with the crew staying overnight at Turnberry (they have good taste!). NOTHING TO DO WITH ME,” Trump tweeted.

He also said he had no knowledge of Vice President Mike Pence’s decision to stay at his resort while visiting family in Ireland.

“I had nothing to do with the decision of our great @VP Mike Pence to stay overnight at one of the Trump owned resorts in Doonbeg, Ireland,” Trump tweeted. “Mike’s family has lived in Doonbeg for many years, and he thought that during his very busy European visit, he would stop and see his family!”

Democrats on the House Oversight Committee say they’re looking into why Air Force members stayed at Trump’s resort during a routine flight to and from Kuwait. They said they are investigating the improper use of military funds during these trips.
