President Donald Trump’s family is living large nowadays, and American taxpayers are paying for it. But it gets worse: Trump will make millions in the process.
Trump was elected by a party that prides itself on fiscal conservatism, but he and family are about to blow taxpayers out of the water with an ever-increasing bill so they can maintain their posh lifestyle.
From the president’s frequent trips to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida and the First Lady’s decision to reside at Trump Tower in New York City, to his sons’ trip to the United Arab Emirates to open a golf course in Dubai, the lifestyle choices of Trump and family are running up taxpayers’ tab in an unprecedented manner, with a large the portion of the bill payable to Donald Trump.
Now let that sink in for a moment.
The Washington Post reports that the president’s three trips to Mar-a-Lago cost taxpayers roughly $10 million and that New York City spends $500,000 every day to guard Trump Tower —which could reach over $730 million by the end of Trump’s first term.
“This is an expensive way to conduct business, and the president should recognize that,” said Tom Fitton, president of the conservative group Judicial Watch.
Trump is set to profit millions from taxpayers every time he visits his luxury resort and from services at Trump Tower.
The more we dig into this, the more it looks like Melania’s decision to stay a Trump Tower was a business decision, not a family issue.
