From the article:
In 2012, Trump tweeted : “President Obama’s vacation is costing taxpayers millions of dollars—-Unbelievable!”

Then in 2014, Trump complained again , tweeting: “Obama’s motto” was: “If I don’t go on taxpayer funded vacations & constantly fundraise then the terrorists win.”
There, he sets himself up.
Ironically, Trump is poised to cost American taxpayers much more for his constant vacations than Obama ever did. So far, with Trump going to his for-profit resort every weekend since his inauguration, he has cost the US Treasury an estimated $10 million , and each trip is expected to have a $3 million or more price tag.

If this keeps up at the rate it’s going, Trump will spend $156 million a year just on trips to Mar-a-Lago. That cost estimate surpasses the monies spent by the Obama’s for all their vacations combined.
And yet, DTT's "fiscal hawks" are either silent or defend this.
On top of these outrageous costs, Melania Trump and Barron are currently living in New York which has its own unbelievable price tag. So far it costs around $308,000 a day to secure Trump Tower in Manhattan; and since Election Day, Americans have spent $24 million.

Interestingly, both Mar-a-Lago and Trump Tower are not only bleeding Americans financially dry, but Trump has found a way to profit off of them. At Mar-a-Lago, the membership fee of $100,000 was raised to $200,000 after Trump was elected; doubling the cost of going to the for-profit club.

Attorney Norm Eisen said about Trump’s exploitation of his current status: “This type of naked profiteering off of a government office is what I would expect from King Louis XVI or his modern kleptocratic equivalents, not an American president.”

In addition to Mar-a-Lago and Trump Tower, this family has found more ways to save a buck at the expense of American taxpayers.

Both Eric and Donald Jr, who are still conducting business for the Trump Organization, charge Americans for every trip they take for security, hotel fees, and anything else they can tac on.

Eric Trump reportedly spent nearly $100,000 for a business trip to Uruguay and trips to Dubai and Canada have tripled that number.
If this doesn't make you want to throw up, you've got a serious problem: grand mal hypocrisy.

Your title says costing millions more than Obama, yet the article says "poised" to cost millions more. What that means is your title is bull shit.

No, it means you read nothing but titles.

And that trip his kids made to Canada was for the official opening of the Trump Tower in Vancouver. No US business at all. In fact they did nothing but hide from protesters. And you're paying for it.

I hope Melania Trump DOES go on good-will tours, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
I certainly can't see it happening anytime soon. This first lady doesn't particularly care for politics or for her husband it seems.

And she's proving it by living in a different house than him.
