Anyone who thought Donald Trump was actually going to be a better option for America than former President Barack Obama has been severely disappointed every single day of Trump’s already-failing presidency.
Trump has only been in office for one month, but he’s already proving to be more disastrous than even his biggest critics thought. One area where Americans are going to be really pissed off is the fact that Trump has already cost American taxpayers just as much money in his first month as Obama cost Americans in a whole year.
Thanks to Trump’s lavish weekend getaways at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida (because he just couldn’t bear to be a full-time president), Trump has screwed Americans over tremendously – he cost us $11.3 million this month alone, compared to Obama’s $12.1 million in average travel expenses for an entire year! Americans cannot afford four more years of a president like this!
Conservative watchdog Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton perfectly criticized the former reality television star when he said:
“This is an expensive way to conduct business, and the President should recognize that. The unique thing about President Trump is that he knows what it costs to run a plane. Going down [to Mar-a-Lago] ain’t free.”
So basically, Trump knows just how much this is screwing over the American people, and he doesn’t give a damn. And it’s not only the plane that is a major financial drain – according to Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, it cost local taxpayers $360,000 to cover the police overtime needed for Trump’s three weekends since his inauguration.
Not that we should be surprised – this behavior is coming from a man who didn’t care that he was costing New York City over $1 million per day for special security measures just because he wanted to operate from his disgusting Trump Tower instead of the White House during his transition.
What is even more infuriating about this whole thing is the blatant hypocrisy from Trump – he has previously criticized Obama several times for his “taxpayer funded vacations” – see for yourself:
The fact that Trump made these statements and yet thinks nothing of doing far worse to taxpayers just proves that he needs to be removed from office.
