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
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.
