US First Lady Melania Trump's recent trip to Egypt saw her cost taxpayers $95,050, according to federal spending records.

Trump entourage had booked up the presidential suite at Semiramis Intercontinental Cairo for $699, according to the hotel’s website. The first lady stopped in Cairo after touring Ghana, Malawi, and Kenya.

The first lady’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, told Quartz, Trump was only in Cairo for six hours.

The Trump's were in the news recently for another hefty bill earlier this year. During Donald Trump’s July stay at his own golf resort in Scotland, which included him two rounds of golf, taxpayers were left paying a $68,800 bill, according The Scotsman.
