Just in case one thinks we’ve forgotten about the previous reprobate in the White House, at least $99 million of taxpayer dollars were spent on family vacations during the eight years of Obama. And that’s just the official number. From the Washington Examiner –
The price does not include all expenses and many of the unknowns are expensive, including those for communications, security and the prepositioning of jets, limos and even ships for security when the Obama’s vacationed in Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.
“For eight long years, the Obamas spent our tax dollars for a lavish jet-setting lifestyle,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Many in the media would only focus on President Trump’s travel, but Barack Obama continues to cost taxpayers with his luxury travel and we aim to get the facts.”
Trump is also coming under for his weekend trips to his golf resorts in Florida and New Jersey. Some critics believe his costs will top Obama’s.
