Saudis rented 500 rooms in Trump hotelLobbyists acting on behalf of the Saudi Arabian government reportedly paid for “more than 500 nights” in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. over the course of three months after Trump was elected president, The Washington Post reports.

Sources cited by the Post said the lobbyists reserved blocks of hotel rooms as part of a campaign offering veterans a free trip to D.C.—complete with banquet dinners and open bars—before having them speak to lawmakers about a law the Saudis opposed. Before Trump was inaugurated, Saudi-funded lobbyists from Qorvis/MSLGroup reportedly put veterans up in Virginia hotels, but they switched accommodations for the “fly-in” trips in December 2016.
