WASHINGTON As America’s first family enjoys its eighth and final vacation in Hawaii, new estimates put the price tag of the Obamas’ annual trip at $3.5 million or more.
In total, the cost of the the first family’s personal or largely personal travel during the last eight years comes to $85 million – though that is likely to climb to $90 million after additional records are released,
according to the conservative group Judicial Watch based on federal government records. Read more here: www.mcclatchydc.com...=cpy

Wow amazing all the same names hating on trump.
Obama spent $97 million over his eight years in office on travel, but Trump has spent at least $10 million on trips to his private club in Florida during his first month in office.
Trump loved to tweet digs at former President Barack Obama for taking a vacation or a golf break, and he loved to remind folks that taxpayers paid for these breaks.
When will Obama next go on vacation if he wins the election? The day after. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 12, 2012
While our wonderful president was out playing golf all day, the TSA is falling apart, just like our government! Airports a total disaster! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 21, 2016
Obama’s motto: If I don’t go on tax payer funded vacations & constantly fundraise then the terrorists win. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 25, 2014

Why was it so terrible when Obama went on vacation a few times a year but Trump can go every damn week?!
Once again, conservatives are the most hypocritical people and change their alleged morals at the drop of a hat.

The thought that Meals on Wheels funding will be lost so that Trump can go on his weekly golf trips to FL is incomprehensible.
As each day passes by, Trump continues to prove why he already is the worst president in US history.

Does a popular vote determine if an election was won by landslide? I don't think so. Not everyone else does either.
Despite losing popular vote, Donald Trump won in 'electoral landslide'

The cult will be along shortly to correct the record.
Once again, the American populace have lost. From Wilbur Ross to Steven Mnuchin, I don't understand how anyone can claim he's "anti-establishment."
I really wanted Trump to be something more than a plan B for TPTB, but it's become pretty clear.
From supporting the drone program, appointing former Sachs bankers, appointing those who have worked for the Rothchilds (Ross) - the American people were played, and big time.
