Around America’s East Coast in 80 Days

In his first 80 days in the White House, President Trump’s six weekend trips to Mar-a-Lago, his private club in Florida, have cost around $21.6 million. That’s according to CNN, that fake news outlet. So can their numbers really be trusted? Probably because these are actual factual numbers that can be checked by anyone with access to a calculator, pencil and paper, abacus and normal working human brain.

Meanwhile our most recent President, Obama, spent close to $97 million on travel during his entire presidency! And that’s according to Judicial Watch, a conservative government watchdog. At President Trump’s current vacationing/golfing/spending pace he’ll spend around 777 million dollars (680 million dollars more than President Obama) if he lasts 8 years in the presidency.

That’s almost 1 billion dollars! Or 8 times the amount that President O. spent… which by the way, caused Republicans to go positively apoplectic. Now however, no one seems to care in the least that our President spends only half of his time at the White House and the other half vacationing in Florida…and at extra taxpayer expense.

Nor does anyone seem to care that our First Lady refuses to live in the White House also, preferring to live in NYC at a cost of millions more in tax payer dollars…not to mention the millions of additional dollars that the states of New York and Florida have to shell out in security costs for our itinerant first family.

Doesn’t anyone remember when Candidate Trump was an outspoken critic of President Obama’s travel and golfing excursions and when he said that he himself would be too busy working hard in the White House for America and Americans to be able to have any time for himself or for his friends and family let alone his favorite hobbies.

And now here he is keeping his promise to make America Great again by having America spend a fortune on infrastructure…his own, that is. Imagine that? Possibly 1 Billion tax payer dollars or more spent on an American President and his wife’s commute to and from home and work!

Thank goodness he’s not also taking a salary, huh? But then he’d have to pay taxes wouldn’t he? Kind of makes you want to hurry up and get your own tax return in by the April 15th deadline doesn’t it?
