How much can a trip to the golf course cost? You apparently believe it’s just a matter of Trump hopping on a plane.
No. When Trump goes down to Mar-a-Lago, he has a staff and security entourage going with him. These people require accommodations, and because they must be in proximity of the POTUS at all times, those accommodations must be at the Mar-a-Lago. Which the government pays for. At Mar-a-Lago rates (the profit of which goes into Trump’s pocket, as he owns Mar-a-Lago, but that’s a discussion for a different thread).
And it’s not just the personnel accompanying the President. It’s the cargo planes that fly down the bullet-proof presidential vehicles. It’s the Coast Guard setting up security along the coastline. It’s more security than you can imagine.
But you have a point about the cost of a round of golf. Because Trump owns the course, he doesn’t have to pay the greens fee. I’m sure all taxpayers are grateful.
