Taxpayers Are Paying For More Than They Bargained For While Trump’s Kids Vacation
A new report revealed on Monday that the U.S. Secret Service has been asking for two jet skis to use while protecting Donald Trump and his family during visits to their vacation homes.
According to the Daily Beast, the federal law enforcement agency had been renting out the vehicles using their own money while the Trump family enjoyed their vacation on the expense of taxpayers.
“President Trump and his family spend several weeks throughout the year in (Mar-A-Lago) FL and Hamptons NY,” the request reads. “The first family is very active in water sports. Several family members along with their guest participate in open water activities for which USSS Special Agent Rescue Swimmers are responsible.”
NBC News reporter Scott McFarlane first noticed the funding request.

While Trump and his family continue to profit from the presidency, working Americans are having to pay for their lavish vacations. That just doesn’t seem fair.
