I wonder what it cost the taxpayers for Trump  to stay at one of his own properties?? Perhaps-Nothing----Now compare that to Obama who never spent his vacation where he owned property in Chicago and always depended on taxpayers to pick up the tab in expensive locations.


"Nothing"  Really?  That's worth some laughs for sure.  Have you forgotten the cost of his travel, the cost of his security entourage, the cost that the government is billed for his and his entourage's stay there? Of course you have forgotten.  Can you show the "expensive" Obama owned properties he stayed at? Can you show Obama making profit from any of it? Of course you can't.   So much for your "perhaps". And so much for your "nothing".

The education is there for those who is not being partisan about it.  Looking back at posts here over more than a decade past, there has been complaints about G.W. Bush flying to Texas over each weekend, or just to vote and then returning to Washington.  The same with Obama and his 'date night' or he and Michelle taking separate aircraft to Hawaii.  Every President has 'played' the system.

 

Now what's the problem with Melania returning to Washinton when it was decided Trump wouldn't be spending the holiday in Florida?   Anyone have something to say about Congress members flying home for the holidays?


Like I expected, no sources, no actual totals, no math. Trump's rate of vacation spending is far surpassing Obama's and most other president's. And ............. trump profits from every golf vacation he takes .......... profits paid for with taxpayer dollars.

Obama's Hawaii Christmas vacations cost taxpayers $35 million over 8 years - Washington Time     --------And let`s not forget Michelle`s trip to Africa and the 8 years of trips to Martha Vinyard


Trump is at a rate of vacation spending that far surpasses Obama's, regardless of Michelle's trip to Africa. To date, trump has spent over $150 million. And by the way, trump has went on golf vacations to his own properties at a rate much higher than Obama went to Martha's Vineyard. Also, trump and his personal businesses profited  from those vacations that were financed by taxpayer dollars. Obama profited nothing from going to Martha's Vineyard.

 

Just a few interesting facts here:

Cost to stay at a Trump resort is nothing? I'm LOL.

 

Trump is supposed to be a billionaire but he charges the SS full cost for everything. Trump charges the Secret Service for their rooms, and everything else. The estimated cost so far, just for visits to his golf resorts, is $84 million in less than 2 years.

Gee, maybe the 'Nude Model' can take a vacation there and straighten it all out?

 

Actually, since the United States had the largest economy in the world, we have "more to lose" than anyone. Mattis and others resigned because of trump's ignorance. Trump's base continues to support trump's ignorance, to no surprise. Putin supports trump's ignorance too.
