US-POLITICS-TRUMP

The Trumps are raising some serious eyebrows about how much their lavish lifestyle is costing the American people.

According to The Washington Post, barely a month into #45’s presidency, the new first family is straining the Secret Service and security officials, stirring financial and logistical concerns, and costing far beyond what has been typical for past presidents. There is a big concern that the overall price tag could reach an alarming hundreds of millions of dollars over the course of a four-year term.

Just the three trips Trump has taken to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida has cost a whopping $11.3 million in tax payer dollars. Apparently, we are paying for Coast Guard patrolling and security and staffing expenses associated with moving the presidency outside of The White House, the Post noted. 

But here’s the gag: This doesn’t even include the $500,000 a day that New York has to pay to guard Trump Tower so that Melania Trump and son Barron can reside in their penthouse instead of living in The White House; the $100,000 in hotel-room bills that were paid for Eric Trump’s recent trip to promote a Trump-brand condo tower in Uruguay; and the $16,000 spent on Secret Service hotel bills for the grand opening of a Trump-brand golf resort in Dubai.

Ironically when President Obama was in office, conservatives—including Trump—constantly whined about how much tax payer money was wasting on their travel and vacations.

But as The Independent pointed out, conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, estimated that Obama’s travel expenses totalled an average $12.1 million each of his eight years in the White House. Yet, Trump is close to exceeding that in just one month of being in office!

“This is an expensive way to conduct business, and the president should recognize that,” Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, recently told The Post.

He added: “The unique thing about President Trump is that he knows what it costs to run a plane,“ and knows that visiting Mar-a-Lago resort “ain’t free.”

  1. Only because he’s a white man can he get away with this. Had Prez O had his family living outside the WH and spent every weekend at his resort style home that cost taxpayers 11.3M in one month and not to mention the cost of security at dumbass towers, oh wait that would never have happened. The redumblicans would have put a stop to that immediately by making sure this news was FRONT page everyday on every news outlet. Where is the outrage from his supporters? Surely even they have to have sense enough to know this is WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. Oh but wait again…they are dumb as hell soooooo there you have it, it doesn’t phase them cuz well….he’s white and that’s all that matters.

  2. They don’t care what he does bilk money use secret service to go on business trips for his family business. Oh yeah he never signed his businesses over . He liea about everything. He will never show his taxes unless forced . He will lead us into some kind of conflict before long. But that will be okay as long as an old rich white man does it. Hate and racism will destroy wait and see.

  3. Honestly on said:

    This psychotic and pathological lying cave n!@@er trump will meet his demise soon at the hands of a fellow cave n!@@er whom he betrayed. They should have never been let out of the caves of Europe.

  4. White privileged. I’m so sick of this white man I don’t knw what to do. He breaks all the rules and regulations, and we get nothing but crickets from the fake ass republithugs. That’s why ppl are tired of politicians. I’m sick of the news media as they ignore this fact. Why can’t this racsit kept his fat ass, tiny fingers in DC?

      • Trump is the one vacationing every weekend. Not in office 30 days and already spent $11.3 MILLION dollars. Not to mention $100,000 for New York security and $120,000 spent for his son’s business trip. Where’s the outrage here? President Obama did not vacation every weekend and he used Camp David a lot. GTFOH with the Obama racist bullsh**. Need to be worried about this tiny hand lying racist narcissist.

      • Crawl your silly ass back up that Appalachian mountain with that SAME drivel. Can you not come up with something new, something different to say? Affirmative Action. Obama is a racist…yada, yada, yada, yada, yada. Do you know how many times I have seen someone white get hired because they knew someone who knew someone, or they are a friend of the boss, or they went to college with the boss, or their children and the bosses children are friends, or they are the son of the boss, or the daughter of the boss, or the neighbor of the boss, or their mother used to date the boss, or they fucked the boss!!!! That, my silly, little, ignorant, man is called WHITE AFFIRMATIVE ACTION.
