The provided costs don’t even include airfare rates for Secret Service agents taking each trek with the Trumps, nor does it include the data on those agents’ salaries and other expenditures taxpayers may be footing the bill for. The budget was expected to naturally increase based on the size of the Trump family as compared to the size of his predecessors, but critics are concerned the billionaire first family hasn’t acknowledged that it’s not him paying for his trips, it’s the American people.
It is estimated that Trump’s trips to Mar-a-Lago during his first 100 days in office alone will cost more than President Obama’s entire yearly travel expenses.
So I guess this is what Trump was talking about when he said he wanted to Make America Great Again.
Apparently that just meant for him and his family.
