Trump travel drains Secret Service budget

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-41005868

https://www.forbes.com/sites/niallmc.../#66b117636e49

By comparison, Barack Obama's travel expenses averaged just $12.1 million during each year of his presidency. In total, Obama's eight year travel bill came to $97 million and unbelievably, Donald Trump is on pace to outspend him in less than one year.

Over the course of the Obama administration, outrage over the president’s travel expenses became a major talking point in right-wing circles. now its a distance memory

Just an FYI for those Fake media people

Typical talk with almost every presidency. I guess you're not counting the SS under Obama and their little jaunts that included luxury hotels equipped with hookers and such.

There seems to always be a focus on either the amount of travel, travel costs, or vacation time. I think we have a lot of much bigger issues to be concerned over.
The ridiculous amount of government spending over the last 15-20 years is okay, but we're going to be concerned over travel costs?

How much of this government waste has gone into trump's hotels??

Personally if a dime goes into his pocket, I'd call that a conflict if interests and illegal. Not sure why more people can't see this is a problem

DS did you see that the former leader of the New York Republican party wished Obama died of mad cow disease?

Do a search.

Doesn't this bother you? Or is it that you have different standards for what party you assume the idiot belongs to (you know a double standard)?
