Trump’s Travel Spending Compared to Obama’s

President Barack Obama spent $97 million on travel-related costs during his eight years in office, according to CNN. That number, which includes both leisure and work-related travel, comes from Judicial Watch, a conservative-leaning watchdog group.

Sounds like a lot, right? Now compare that to Donald Trump‘s travel. Trump’s travels — namely to Mar-a-Lago, where he’s already made six trips — have cost American taxpayers an estimated $20 million. Fortune says Trump is on pace to surpass that figure in just his first year.

Plus, there’s more. First Lady Melania Trump currently resides in a penthouse at Trump Tower in Manhattan. According to police estimates the city of New York spends as much as $146,000 daily to provide security. When you run the numbers, that adds up to an additional $50 to $60 million each year the arrangement continues. Just food for thought American people….
