President Donald Trump's trips to his Florida resort come at a cost.
Trump heads to his Mar-a-Lago club Friday for the third straight weekend. The three jaunts may cost the U.S. Treasury roughly $10 million, including security and staffing costs, according to a Washington Post report. Each trip to Mar-a-Lago could cost an estimated $3 million or more, Politico previously reported.
Presidents often receive criticism for their vacation costs that fall on taxpayers. Trump routinely criticized his predecessor Barack Obama for taking trips or golfing.

But the Trump family looks set to blow past the taxpayer costs that Obama racked up for travel due to its unique circumstances, the newspaper reported.


Daws, but THIS IS different because.....uh.......well, I'm not sure WHY, but wait a few minutes and the sheep & goats will tell you why. I'm guessing it's because
1) Donny is special 2) Melania is special 3) Did I mention Donny is special??

As of Jan. 20, that Trump contingent will balloon to more than 920 Secret Service agents and support personnel in Washington and his hometown, New York.
The price tag for all that security is already very big, or as the Manhattan mogul might put it, "Yuge."
Right now, the cost to taxpayers is more than $2 million a day, the documents show, a number that is sure to increase whenever the president or the first lady travels or when the threat level rises. Protecting Trump's family presents unprecedented challenges. First off, it's a big family 18 members in all, including Melania Trump and her 10-year-old son, Barron, as well as four adult children, three of them married, with a combined eight grandchildren.

Like I said......"SPECIAL".
Thanks from Daws77

Hey, the premise of this thread, that taxpayers are being forced to pay for Melania's choices is absurd.

The taxpayers are being forced to pay for their choices.
And even then, much of the money will be borrowed....

Melania doesn't need to scramble. She's already OUT. OUT of the White House. OUT of sight. OUT of the press. OUT of her First Lady duties. OUT of Trump's life.
AND...I don't blame her one bit. I'm betting this was her 'deal' with Donny. Yes, I wll support you. Yes, I will give a campaign speech for you (and that went well, didn't it). Yes, I will look the part. BUT IF YOU WIN, Donny Babe, I won't live at the White House and I won't do your bidding. Something like that....I'm guessing.
Thanks from Daws77
