Donald Trump's travel expenses in 10 weeks cost US taxpayers as much as Barack Obama spent in two years!   $24+ million and climbing!!!   But...don't worry, once he opens those coal mines, that will help offset the costs!!!

Donald Trump’s trips to his luxury Florida resort have already cost the US taxpayer at least $24 million - roughly as much as Barack Obama spent on travel in the first two years of his presidency.

Mr Trump has now spent eight weekends at Mar-a-Large-Owe since taking office ten/eleven weeks ago.   Happy Easter!!!

President Trump's trips to Mar-A-Lago costs US taxpayers!:

  • Total cost for security in Palm Beach: $3.7 million
  • Roundtrip flights from Joint Base Andrews, Maryland to West Palm, Florida: $700,000
  • Overtime for local law enforcement during Trump’s trips: $60,000/day
  • Total golf cart rentals ordered by the Secret Service "for POTUS visit": $35,185
  • Loss to business due to airport closure: -$30,000/weekend
After he hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago, Mr Trump will have averaged $2.4 million tax dollars a week on his Florida trips (to his OWN property)!   If he keeps going at this pace, he will have outspent Mr Obama’s $97 million figure in just ten months.

Critics have pointed out that if the President Donald cut back on these visits, he could fund the social security and arts programs that he is planning to slash.
