Home Politics Donald Trump Has Already Cost Millions in Trips and Extra Protection, Donates...

I’m not alone telling you this today, but it bears mentioning again and again.

Donald Trump donated $70,000 today to the US Park Service. That’s his first quarter salary for being President. He will get a tax deduction — if he pays taxes– one day for donating his $400,000 salary to charities and foundations.

However: it is costing us, US taxpayers, $3 million each time Trump and family fly to Mar-a-Lago for the weekend.  They’ve done this five times already.

Also, it’s costing anywhere between $150,000 and $300,000 a day to guard Trump Tower simultaneously while Melania and Barron Trump remain there instead of being in Washington. That comes to roughly $11 million by now.

So: Trump has cost us $26 million in extras just since January 20th.

But, hey, thanks for the $70,000. It really helps!
