This is an American tradition, taking turns whining about how much money is spent on the President golfing.
It's particularly noteworthy at the moment because we have a president* who has smashed all previous records for taxpayer money and time spent on golf outings, after trashing his predecessor for spending a fraction of the money and after pledging that he would be "too busy working for you to play golf."
Plus he's stuffing $$millions in his pocket by charging taxpayers for golf cart and hotel room rentals.
That's a first.
So is putting a "celebrity sports coordinator" on the White House payroll.

Remember when he promised he'd be too busy working to play golf?

So, he's not taking a salary. So what? He's making a hell of a lot more through his businesses.


"With his Thanksgiving vacation, President Donald Trump’s golf hobby has now cost Americans an estimated $115 million in travel and security expenses ― the equivalent of 287 years of the presidential salary he frequently boasts about not taking.


Of that amount, many hundreds of thousands ― perhaps millions ― of dollars have gone into his own cash registers, as Secret Service agents, White House staff and other administration officials stay and eat at his hotels and golf courses."


Just a quick question on the math, since the Presidential salary he is not taking is:

$115 million in travel and security expenses to go play golf while being POTUS, especially after criticizing his predecessor for doing so is bad enough, but not quite sure where the 287 years comes in. 2.87 years of salary perhaps, but 287 years?

115 million ÷ 400,000 = 287.5

But the $115 million is only what he's spent so far. At this rate, he'll have spent $162 million at the end of one term, or slightly over 400 years salary.

Just pointing out that Trump lies as usual. You just don't want to see it.
:cool:
Did you point out Obama's lies of is this just more of your partisan double standards and hypocrisy. If democrats would stop the witch hunt and actually do their job like the military budget Trump would have things to do. But as always your hate blinds you to reality
