Here’s Where Trump And His Family Are Spending Your Taxpayer Dollars This Weekend

With the White House descending into deeper chaos with leaks about infighting within his administration, and multiple international conflicts, the president, and his family are far from the White House.

As Trump and his GOP allies withhold taxpayer money from federal programs aimed to help the poor, the president and his family continue to spend record sums of money on expensive vacations and security details.

Jared and Ivanka are spending the weekend at the Four Seasons Whistler in Canada, according to the Jewish Insider.

The Four Seasons Resort is hosting “Pesach on the Mountain,” a 10-day kosher ski vacation, billed as “an exclusive Pesach vacation that offers supreme accommodations” on its website.

Trump and Kushner are not the first orthodox Jews to serve in an administration. But the couple’s travel is not in line with previous administration officials. It’s unusual in the first 100 days of an administration, especially as many White House staffers and high-level officials have logged long hours and most weekends.

In the Obama administration, top aides generally took vacation at the same time as Obama, as long as they were not staffing the President on the vacation.

The President always travels with a senior official and a senior National Security Council aide. But Trump has been without his most trusted advisers at critical junctures during the first 100 days of his presidency.

Meanwhile, Eric and Donald Trump Jr. are traveling to undisclosed locations, while president Trump is heading to Florida for another golfing weekend. It’s unclear if Melania will join him at Mar-a-Lago.

And that’s how your money is going down the toilet.
