People complained when President Eisenhower played golf. They complained when Jackie Kennedy bought clothes. They always complain but there has never been anything to compare with the selfish spending of this current man in office who takes so much of our money and spends it on himself.

Year to date, Donny Dummy, has spent approximately $30,000,000 on personal travel. So if he stays on track, which he will, he will spend close to $60,000,000 in one year. So by this time next year, he will after roughly 18 months in office, surpassed BO's spending for EIGHT years.

In addition unlike Obama, Donny Con is spending OUR money to stay at Trump properties which continue to make him richer and us poorer.

Is this Making America Great Again?

What's the fuss?
He's not spending money (as defined by the Coinage Act of 1792, et seq).
Federal Reserve Notes are worthless IOUs kited by a bankrupt CONgress (since 1933).
Of course, 320 million enumerated contributors are obligated parties on those notes.
But if you're not in FICA, not your problem.

Simple solution :

If you are outraged about the president " spending OUR money " stop sending it to him.

Yes, you can solve some of your own problems or be :

Strange situation here with Trump because he isn't doing anything he wouldn't be doing normally.



BINGO !!! Therein lies the problem, you voted for an eccentric "rich guy" who has gold plated toilet paper in his gold plated bathroom, next to his gold plated toilet. Now that he is on OUR DIME, he is doesn't have the brains or integrity to figure out that money comes from somewhere. That somewhere is you and me and every other hard working American.

You guys just gave Trump a gold plated American Express card, and we all get the bill every month. A man must maintain his standards, ya know !

Now this is just pitiful. You simply have to up your game.

There are dozens of easily accessible links on how much Trump's weekend jaunts cost.

"Government Accountability Office (GAO) has just announced it will begin a review - but travel and security are estimated to cost the taxpayer somewhere in the region of $3.3m per trip, based on a GAO assessment of a similar trip by Barack Obama."

Mar-a-Lago: The price of Trump's 'Winter White House' - BBC News

Trump and the Republicans complained constantly about Obama's travel costs. How did you miss it?

Of course his poorly educated followers are clueless and the repub leadership which should say something about this wasteful behavior, says nothing. Is this Making America Great Again? -don't think so.
It's a fair and good point but we do have to point out your thread title notes it's a continuation of wasteful spending.
