President Trump has attended his private Mar-a-Lago club in Florida four weekends since he has become president and is planning to continue these $3 million weekend trips at your expense.
He had vowed, while campaigning, he “would rarely leave the White House because there’s so much work to be done” and “would not be a president who took vacations” because “you don’t have time to take time off.” Apparently, this was just talk.
Trump had criticized President Obama, while campaigning, for taking trips or for golfing on his off time.
President @BarackObama's vacation is costing taxpayers millions of dollars—-Unbelievable!

Obama’s motto: If I don’t go on tax payer funded vacations & constantly fundraise then the terrorists win.

Trump has spent every weekend in Florida since his presidency, apart from the very first weekend he stepped into office. $16.5 million has already been spent by Trump on these travel expenses.
With that same money, Meals on Wheels could feed 5,967 seniors for a year, after school programs could feed 114,583 children for a year, and the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program could be helping those who can not afford heat during the cold.
