Really? Like, reeeeeallly?
CBS News reports they have gained access to the purchasing orders for the Secret Service details that have followed President Trump and his family since inauguration. This includes recent business trips to UK and Ireland for brothers Eric and Donald Jr. that cost the American tax payers more than $190,000.
Equally disturbing is the fact that each time the President and Melania fly down to Florida on Air Force One to spend the weekend at Mar-a-Lago, it costs about $700,000 round trip. In total, each trip costs the American tax payers about $3 million.
CBS points out that the purchasing orders do not cover airfares and other expenses for the Secret Service for trips taken in advance to scope things out. But they do, however, point out a horrifying expense.
“One purchase order reviewed by CBS News shows the US Secret Service has spent $35,185 on golf cart rentals “for POTUS visit” in Palm Beach County, Florida since the President’s inauguration.”
In response to the flagrant, irresponsible, hypocritical, and possibly illegal misuse of taxpayers’ money, the Government Accountability Office is crafting a report that will outline the exorbitant costs the luxurious lifestyle of the Trumps is costing Americans.
