Holy ****, his travel expenses are FIVE TIMES more extrapolated linearly for a year.
Remember he is not being paid, he is working hard to make the government more efficient and cut spending. LOL
Oh yeah, about that "not being paid" part, other than the hundreds of millions of free services he is using, and the obvious graft - he hasn't quite gotten around to that yet....
If the political heat starts to burn Mr. Trump's butt (assuming he would notice, not a sure thing at all, IMO), don't be surprised to see something like that happen. After all, Trump's billionaire supporters are so excited to be "owning" our government via Trump and the GOP Congress that they would view several million dollars a year in donated "travel/vacation" funds as small interest to pay on a huge giveaway for them coming down the pike. In my opinion.
He is RIPPING off the American public, and his supporters are ok with it, after bitching mercilessly about Obama - well now they get to live in the hypocrisy and watch the death knells of the republican party as the rest of the country wakes up and goes...WTF?
LOL, Trump spokestool Sean Spicer addressed Trump's golf trips (btw, one out every 6 days Trump has been on the golf course):
Sean Spicer wants you to know that Trump’s golfing is strategic and/or not happening
So just to run through those excuses:
1. Trump uses golf to foster deeper relationships.
2. Also, just because he’s at a golf course doesn’t mean he’s golfing.
3. Also? It’s none of your business.
Spicer is being forced into the Baghdad Bob persona. Well he could also tell Trump that he isn't going to lie for him anymore, and then resign or get fired.
The agency recently requested an additional $60 million in spending for fiscal year 2018, according to a Washington Post report on Tuesday. Nearly $27 million of that was to be earmarked for security at the president’s private residence at Trump Tower in New York, where first lady Melania Trump lives with their 11-year-old son. The Secret Service also said it needed another $33 million to cover travel costs incurred by “the president, vice president and other visiting heads of state.”
The Office of Management and Budget rejected the request, a source told the Post, which could potentially force the Secret Service to scale back on other operations, like investigations into cyber hacking, counterfeit currency, financial crimes or missing and exploited minors.
