    Pence's stay at Trump's Irish golf resort has reinvigorated the debate about whether the president is using his position to enrich himself.

    Ground transportation for Vice President Mike Pence's stay at President Donald Trump's Doonbeg, Ireland, resort cost taxpayers nearly $600,000, according to State Department receipts.

    The documents, made available through a General Services Administration database, were first spotted by the left-leaning watchdog Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and later reviewed by NBC News.

    The receipts totaled more than $599,000 in conjunction with the vice president's stay, which required him to travel back-and-forth between Doonbeg and Dublin, where his official meetings were set to take place. During then-President Barack Obama's three-day visit to Ireland in 2013, the State Department spent just $114,000 on ground transit, paying the same limousine company. The government paid the same company nearly $1 million for Trump's ground transportation during a June visit to the property.

    The State Department referred NBC News' request for comment to the vice president's office. The vice president's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Pence spent hours in transit — both flying and driving — between Doonbeg and Dublin, more than 180 miles away on the opposite end of the country. Pence, who traveled with his wife, sister, and mother, was originally scheduled to conclude his trip in Doonbeg, where he has familial ties, after attending World War II commemoration ceremonies in Poland.
