    Default "Trump family's lavish lifestyle could cost taxpayers hundreds of millions"

    "Trump family's lavish lifestyle could cost taxpayers hundreds of millions over 4 ye"On Friday, President Donald Trump and his entourage will jet for the third straight weekend to a working getaway at his oceanfront Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida".

    "On Saturday, Trump's sons Eric and Don Jr., with their Secret Service details in tow, will be nearly 8,000 miles away in the United Arab Emirates, attending the grand opening of a Trump-brand golf resort in the "Beverly Hills of Dubai."

    "Meanwhile, New York police will keep watch outside the Trump Tower in Manhattan, the chosen home of first lady Melania Trump and son Barron. And the tiny township of Bedminster, New Jersey, is preparing for the daunting prospect that the local Trump golf course will serve as a sort of northern White House for as many as 10 weekends a year"

    "Trump told the Hill newspaper in 2015, "I would rarely leave the White House because there's so much work to be done."

    And the conservatives called for audits over Obama's weekend golf, so much for them telling us they are so worried about deficits and debts

    Well you know... people like Nova say he's not taking his $400K annual salary, and that's supposed to make up for the millions spent on him and his family.

    Like, why do we have to pay for SS hotel bills when son Eric's went to Uruguay and it wasn't on government business?

    They are making money off this, as he said he would.

    The same reason any Presidents family Secret Service is paid for no matter where they go. This is a moot point. Just part of the program for any President.

    Perhaps you can cite another president's family members who got government to pay for their business trips to enrich the family.

    The government is not paying for his business trips. Just the security. Like every other President's family. At least get your facts straight.

    We are funding a billionaires extravagant lifestyle. Why can't Trump pay for his own bodyguards?

    I said that previously. "...why do we have to pay for SS hotel bills..."

    And the facts are that no other president's family used taxpayer money (SS protection) while doing business to enrich the president and his family.

    "The Uruguayan trip shows how the government is unavoidably entangled with the Trump company as a result of the president’s refusal to divest his ownership stake. In this case, government agencies are forced to pay to support business operations that ultimately help to enrich the president himself. Though the Trumps have pledged a division of business and government, they will nevertheless depend on the publicly funded protection granted to the first family as they travel the globe promoting their brand...

    “This is an example of the blurring of the line between the personal interest in the family business and the government,” said Kathleen Clark, an expert on government ethics and law professor at Washington University in St. Louis...."

    Pretty sure the SS is required to provide protection for his children, just like they did with the Bush daughters to their bar outings.
