Donald Trump and his family continue to profit from using the president’s property for non-political events.

The State Department shelled out more than $15,000 on 19 rooms at the new Trump hotel in Vancouver, where the family held a grand opening of the tower in late February, the Washington Post reports.

The Post, under a Freedom of Information Act request, obtained a heavily redacted invoice from the U.S. Consulate General in Vancouver.

The State Department, which provides security and logistical assistance,  has declined to comment.

Government officials have complained that Trump is using tax dollars for protection at the president at one of his private companies.
