Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman led to the largest increase in public debt. Public debt rose over 100% of GDP to pay for the mobilization before and during the war. Public debt was $251.43 billion or 112% of GDP at the conclusion of the war in 1945 and was $260 billion in 1950.Yeah right If I were to look for Trump golf trip costs all I would find is the same bullshit parroted by the usual suspect sources over and over guessing about the number. There will be no actual costs expressed on the internet only more "Get Trump" B.S.
Obama made ten trips to 21 countries (four countries were visited twice) and was out of the U.S. a total of 40 days.
When he was campaigning President Trump frequently bashed President Obama for playing golf and said that he would be too busy to play. Per a HuffPost article he said, “I love golf, but if I were in the White House, I don’t think I’d ever see Turnberry again. I don’t think I’d ever see Doral again,” he told a rally audience in February 2016, referring to his course near the Miami airport. “I don’t ever think I’d see anything. I just want to stay in the White House and work my ass off.”
Trump has been unabashed in visiting and promoting his golf properties in the U.S., Scotland and Ireland. Of his 193 outings all but 3 have been to his courses and require very expensive travel and security costs. If he is reelected the total taxpayer bill will conservatively be over $340 million.
