Of course, at least it was my money. Hey, come to think of it, Trump’s golfing bill is my money.
The figures are staggering. $115 million, and that is from information that is publicly available. The White House won’t release how many staff stay at his resorts. Now why is that? And the nights are close to $600, more than 3 times the government normal per diem. All going to Trump’s business.
“At this point in Obama’s first term, he had spent 88 days on a golf course. But Trump’s visit to his course in West Palm Beach on Wednesday was his 223rd day at one of his own courses ― two and a half times as many golfing days as Obama.
Further, Obama played the majority of his rounds at courses on military bases within a short drive of the White House, while Trump has insisted on taking numerous trips to visit his courses in New Jersey and Florida, both of which require seven-figure travel and security costs.”
The point? Today a big deal was made in the press that Trump has been donating his salary to either charity or to the government. I believe the article points out that the golf expenses so far equal 287 years of his salary.
Geez man, keep the pay and golf a bit less.
Of course, he is a Republican and the motto is “Borrow and Spend”.
