AP: Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Trips May Not Be as Expensive as Media Says

on

President Trump has frequented Mar-a-Lago during his presidency, critics bash how much tax payer money he’s using, but these trips may not cost the higher price tag critics have come up with.

Donald Trump has been a very vocal critic of Obama’s expensive golfing trips during his presidency so it has been a surprise to some when President Trump traveled to Mar-a-Lago several times. Critics compare each of his trips with Obama’s golfing trips to Palm Beach which cost $3.6 Million per trip.

President @BarackObama‘s vacation is costing taxpayers millions of dollars—-Unbelievable!

From IJR:

According to an Associated Press fact check, however, it could be “a mistake to apply” that $3.6 million figure to Trump’s visits to Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach — as the true cost might be less than a third of that figure.

What’s more, as the AP notes:

As fate would have it, the estimate for Trump’s Mar-a-Lago trips is based on a 2013 weekend golf trip Obama took to Palm Beach.

As the Government of Accountability Office’s (GAO) Brian Lepore — who authored that report about the cost of Obama’s 2013 trip — noted, it’s not a good idea to assume that cost also applies to Trump:

“It’s hard to substitute one trip for another, even if the destination is the same.”

Know the quickest way to make Democrats fiscal conservatives? Just elect a Republican President…

But really… These are the same people who said a $170,000 MOAB cost $316,000,000 last week! Why would they let something like facts get in the way of their agenda!?

Math is hard, common sense even harder: They are not vacations, he works and entertains dignitaries there. Easter weekend was the closest to a vacation-while he stayed vigilant on the world’s bad actors.
