Trump’s Travels Turning Out Costly For Taxpayers

7

The Washington Post reports that those three trips “probably cost the federal treasury about $10 million, based on figures used in an October government report analyzing White House travel, including money for Coast Guard units to patrol the exposed shoreline and other military, security and staffing expenses associated with moving the apparatus of the presidency.”

It wasn’t even a year ago that Trump was complaining about taxpayers “paying a fortune for the use of Air Force One.”

“I say we cannot continue to let Obama fly around on Air Force 1, at a cost of millions of dollars a day, for the purpose of politics and play!,” read one tweet, published in July of 2014.

Obama’s total costs of travel, through two terms in office, tallies up to around $100 million.

  1. “for the purpose of politics and play”
    Trump works nonstop. His trips to mar a Lago are for diplomacy or work. Why are you reprinting such garbage.

  2. Sorry. Irrelevant fake news. Whatever it costs, that’s what is needed for the President of the United States to do his job.

  3. Does the 100 mil for Obama include his wife’s and daughters’ separate travels all over the world, just for fun, enjoying unearned vacations at others’ expense?
