Man of the (swamp)People?

Image result for trumps travel spending

“I would rarely leave the White House because there’s so much work to be done and I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off… You don’t have time to take time off.” -D. Trump

“Taxpayers are paying a fortune for the use of Air Force One on the campaign trail by President Obama and Crooked Hillary.  A total disgrace!” -D. Trump

“I say we cannot afford 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!” -D. Trump

Last Monday, President Trump returned to the White House from his private Mar-a-Lago club in Florida, which he calls the “Southern White House”. He’s spent the last 3 weekends there (of his 4 weekend presidency!) And based on White House travel reports he’s done that at a cost of 10 million dollars in taxpayer money!

Add in the two international trips Trump’s adult sons have taken to promote President Trump’s hotels and businesses and we’re up to 11.3 million dollars! Taxpayers are also on the hook for protecting First Lady Melania Trump, who would rather live in New York City (The Yankee White House?) than be the First Lady who lives in the real White House (isn’t she special?)  Because police officials estimate the annual cost of guarding Trump Tower could be as high as $183 million. That’s $15 million per month!

President Trump and his Royal Family have spent 26.3 million dollars in their first month as the First Family of America….just on traveling away from the White House! President Obama and his family averaged 12 million dollars PER YEAR in travel expenses. So the Trumps have trumped that number to the tune of over 100% or more than double in just one month!

If the President keeps this up he and his family will spend 1 billion 262 million dollars just on traveling over the next 4 years! And to top it off President Trump who repeatedly criticized President Obama for playing golf while president, played his 6th round of golf so far during his first month as POTUS.

And…In order to have constant access to the commander-in-chief, the military is forced to rent space in Trump Tower at a taxpayer expense of about 1 and a half million dollars a year. And guess who gets those payments? The Trumps of course! And at 200,000 dollars a pop you can be a member of Mar-a-Lago (Trump Change!) and watch him do top secret stuff (sans the Emails!) …If I were a country, and I had an Intelligence Service, I’d be buying me some memberships right about now! (This makes spying too easy!!!!)

And while spending millions in taxpayer dollars and making millions in taxpayer dollars President Trump has his experts working on proposed budget cuts for things that he finds America can’t afford… like Public Broadcasting, Americorps, The National Endowment for the Arts, Food Stamps, Planned Parenthood and Legal Aid Services…just to name a few.

GOOD GRIEF! Talk about draining the swamp?! President Trump and his family have taken to the swamp like Yoda and Luke Skywalker on Dagobah! The Air Force One is with him now… thanks to all of his loyal supporters who still believe that his lying is a strategy to somehow help make America (and not himself)  great again.

As Yoda would say: A sucker born every minute there is!
