Taxpayers Paid $77,000 So Trump Jr. Could Murder Mongolian Sheep

“Donald Trump Jr.’s eight-day trip to Mongolia last August was controversial, not least because he was awarded a permit to hunt an endangered argali sheep after he had already killed one. He also had a private meeting with Mongolian President Khaltmaagiin Battulga, a month after Battulga met with President Trump in the White House, and he was traveling with a major Republican donor, ProPublica reported. Also, taxpayers spent nearly $77,000 on Secret Service protection during the trophy hunting expedition, the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington reports, citing updated Freedom of Information Act requests.

Trump Jr. Murders Mongolian Sheep, Gets Pardoned

Trump Jr. Murders Mongolian Sheep, Gets Pardoned

Donald J. Trump Jr. bought an exotic hunting expedition to Mongolia at an NRA charity auction and traveled there last summer with five of his closest friends Secret Service agents. Trump Junior, ever the sportsman, went hunting at night with a laser-sight-equipped rifle and shot an argali sheep.

The argali sheep is a rare endangered species. Mongolia allows a few argali to be shot every year, but hunters need special permits. When he murdered that Mongolian mutton, Donald Trump Jr. did not have a permit. If Hunter Biden had done that, he’d be in Gants Khudag Police Detention Center in Ulaanbaatar. For some reason, Junior got a permit retroactively after he met with Mongolia’s president, His Excellency Khaltmaagiin Battulga.
