We the people need to demand change in how our leaders are allowed to use our hard earned money to golf, travel to exotic and expensive locations, etc.
Just brain storming here, but what if...
We pass a law that allows for 3 weeks paid vacation a year that include secret service protection and use of tax payer funded transportation. Anything beyond that must be privately funded out of the Presidents personal funds.
Curious - what lavish vacations has Trump taken? Exactly where did Trump go on "vacation?"
It's unfortunate that so many Americans are unaware of the travel and expenses that our President is racking up. I'll update this hear so that those reading can be informed. Over $10M in 1 month to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida and taken approximately half-dozen golf outtings.
No President should have carte blanche to travel and vacation at tax payer expense.
Out of the last seven weeks, Trump has headed down to FL to his country club to play golf five of those weeks. Compare this to what he said in 2016 at a rally in Virginia: ""I'm going to be working for you; I'm not going to have time to go play golf." I guess working on his golf game is his version of working for us.
Exactly, it's unfortunate that there are some who are so invested in their belief in Trump that they can't be open and fair minded about his excessive and lavish vacationing.
There is absolutely zero reason for a President to make non-State required travel to vacation resorts, on tax payer dime regardless of whether or not they own the lavish resort.
We pay exorbitant amounts of money for our President to have a safe home and office which is outfitted with all the necessary tools for work and comfort and then we have to pay for them to travel nearly every weekend too?
What exactly in terms of dollars is the return to the American tax payer?
