Donald Trump’s Vacations are Going to Cost Americans Nearly $1 Billion

It’s a sobering fact that Donald Trump has chosen to take a 4th vacation down to the Mar-a-Lago club in Florida in his roughly 6 weeks in office.

Taking a look at the bigger picture, we can see something seriously disturbing with his travel trends:


In short: he’s on track to spend about $900 million more than Obama did on travel and about $1 billion total.

For someone who spoke at length about cutting the fat, this seems like a pretty easy part of the budget to cut back on.

Most Americans, when they are under financial pressure, tend to stop taking vacations. Donald Trump appears to be doing the exact opposite.
