Title: $102 Million for Trump's Golf, so STFU About $35 Million for Mueller!
Post by: davik62 on 05 22, 19, 07:56:19:PM
Donald Trump’s 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 president’s 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 Trump’s campaign promise that if elected he would not play golf at all, the White House has done preliminary work for Trump’s 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.

Late Tuesday afternoon, the White House announced that Trump would meet with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar in Shannon, just 30 miles by air from Trump’s
golf resort in Doonbeg. It will be the first time Trump will visit a foreign country — with the staggering footprint of personnel and equipment that entails — for the
main purpose of playing golf, though an official purpose was layered on after the fact.

“It’s obviously an incredible waste of money,” said Robert Weissman, president of the group Public Citizen. He then quipped: “Of course, the more time he spends
golfing, the less time he spends governing, the better.”

The $102 million total to date spent on Trump’s presidential golfing represents 255 times the annual presidential salary he volunteered not to take. It is more than
three times the cost of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation that Trump continually complains about. It would fund for six years the Special Olympics
program that Trump’s proposed budget had originally cut to save money.

After all your complaints about things costing too much and waste,
why have you GOPpers remained silent on this?

Especially with his upcoming trip to his own resort in Ireland?

I would assume that going to Ireland will also include another secret meeting with Putin?

Ireland is basically a golf vacation for Trump, but he is throwing in a meeting with Ireland's PM to make it LOOK official.

He is SUCH a spender!$!$!$!  Trump spending is what GOPpers should complain about, more than Democrat spending.

And yet you complained about $`1 trillion to bail us out of Great Recession.

Why aren't you complaining about the $1 trillion we are borrowing this year?

GWB spending was the thing that brought us to the edge of the second Great Depression.

Obama saved us from that.

The final expense report is not yet available, but we know the investigation cost ... the Mueller probe was a '2-year waste of taxpayer time and dollars,'


Dims like to waste the taxpayers money apparently (http://www.aesopsretreat.com/forum/Smileys/classic/rolleyes.gif)

Trump saved the country from the Barry Soetoro aka BHO depression recession !

Certainly a lot LESS than the Benghazi fishing expedition, or Ken Starr's 5 year debacle!

You Repocons complain about costs, but then ignore your own idiocy.  Hypocrites!

Normal People don't care about Mueller's $35,000,000 to find Our President INNOCENT of Collusion/Obstruction.

We could have told you LibTards that ahead of time.

But, now you have it out of your system and Our President can move on again doing the great work of the American People.

THANK YOU!!!
