Trumps Golf Costs: $102 Million And Counting, With Taxpayers Picking Up The Tab
Donald Trumps golf habit has already cost taxpayers at least $102 million in extra travel and security expenses, and next month will achieve a new milestone: a seven-figure presidential visit to another country so he can play at his own course.
U.S. taxpayers have spent $81 million for the presidents two dozen trips to Florida, according to a HuffPost analysis. They spent $17 million for his 15 trips to New Jersey, another $1 million so he could visit his resort in Los Angeles and at least $3 million for his two days in Scotland last summer ― $1.3 million of which went just for rental cars for the massive entourage that accompanies a president abroad.
And, notwithstanding Trumps campaign promise that if elected he would not play golf at all, the White House has done preliminary work for Trumps visit to his resort on the west coast of Ireland next month, according to Irish media and government sources, even though no official meeting with Irish leaders is planned in the capital, Dublin.
ÂI just want to stay in the White House and work my a** off."
He doesn't even read his daily briefings. Those in his administration who have abandoned ship have stated that the man doesn't even read. No wonder he has no grasp of spelling, grammar, and big, adult sounding words.
