Trump Just Ended Obama’s Vacation Scam.
He was going to stick us for 2.1 billion or so.
Before Obama left office, he arranged with the State Department for a
series of “official visits” to foreign countries, spanning the next 20
Using discretionary funds from the Office of Presidential Visits and Vacations,
Obama was able to weasel what would have been another $2.1 billion in
free vacations for him and up to 24 members of his family plus staff
and a dog sitter until the year 2036.
He would have, that is, had he not lost his office to Donald Trump.
Trump, who is always looking for ways to save money, was having the
office used for vacations repainted when he was presented with a
ledger that contained all of the Obama travel plans and expenses.
The ledger was found by one of the workers Trump hired from outside
the typical White House staff to make alterations.
Trump immediately canceled the plans and recalled all Secret Service
agents scheduled to protect the Obamas anywhere outside of the United
States. The Obamas are also facing another new challenge at the hands of Trump.
They’re going to have to repay the government for all of those
vacations that weren’t official state business.
The bill, after some small allowances, for days that were possibly
work related, is for $214 million.
Of the 692 days the Obamas spent on vacation, almost none included any
work at all. They ate, slept and golfed and Michelle was given
shopping allowances from the Office of Discretionary Gifting Funds,
which is supposed to be used to buy presents for visiting dignitaries.
It’s just one scandal after another with these people.
Share this. Keep draining the swamp, President Trump.
Most Americans do appreciate it!
