As much as Donald Trump ragged on President Obama for “spending millions of taxpayers’ dollars” on travel, he manages to put up MAJOR numbers in no time!
WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA — For years, Trump has been pointing the finger at Obama, citing multiple, careless wastes on taxpayers’ money as well as decisive faults as the United States’ president.
However, through it all, Donald Trump fooled the hell out of his supporters, many of which have — since election — disowned him as their choice.
We’re talking IMMEDIATE regret.
And…well…Trump’s travel expenses simply add many bricks to America’s wall of shame.

The First 90 Days
Donald Trump has only been president for approximately 90 days. In just three months, he’s racked up over one-fifth of Barack Obama’s 8-year total for travel expenses!
At this rate, Trump will outspend Obama's entire eight years in only 12 months. https://t.co/M1Nvho4dSK

Can you believe that? … Of course you can. We’re talking about Donald Trump, here. The world’s leading narcissist.
According to CNN, President Obama totaled $97 million in travel expenses over the course of his two terms — that includes personal as well as professional trips. The source says that, in 2011, Trump tweeted this nonsense.
“The habitual vacationer, @BarackObama, is now in Hawaii. This vacation is costing taxpayers $4 milion +++ while there is 20% unemployment.”
But, his statistics were vastly incorrect, as usual.
“Trump later tweeted: ‘President @BarackObama’s vacation is costing taxpayers millions of dollars—Unbelievable!'”
Yet, to date, “Mr. Golden Shower” has accrued excess of $21 million in travel expenses to his Florida Mar-a-Lago resort, alone.
Trump: $21.6 million in 90 days
Obama: $97 million in 8 years.https://t.co/y28sF5FvBA

The source mentions as follows.
“Trump’s frequent trips to Florida will likely end soon. Businesses in Palm Beach County have been told to expect the president to visit through May, but that Trump will likely stop visiting after that because the weather in the area begins to get stiflingly hot. Instead, many expect Trump will then start making frequent trips to his penthouse apartment at Trump Tower in New York City — where first lady Melania Trump has been living for the first part of 2017 as their son, Baron, finishes school — and his private Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster Township, New Jersey.”
De-funding for Re-funding
CNN also notes that Trump has asked Congress to cut $54 billion in non-defense spending. However, that doesn’t include his vacation money.
Trump is truly draining this country for all it’s got, and he’s not ashamed. This is just free money for him. Lol! It’s his own resort.
