Trump's early trips to Mar-a-Lago cost nearly $14 million: Watchdog report
By Benjamin Siegel

"President Donald Trump's four trips to his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida over four weeks in March and February 2017, including his summit with the Japanese prime minister, cost the government nearly $14 million, according to the results of a nonpartisan government watchdog's investigation obtained by ABC News."
"The accounting, which reveals that the government also paid roughly $600,000 to Trump's Palm Beach property, provides one of the clearest pictures to date of the costs incurred by the government for the president's travel to his properties."
"The report, from the Government Accountability Office, a nonpartisan watchdog that works as an investigative arm of Congress, also found that the U.S. Secret Service spent $396,000 protecting the president’s sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, on three international trips in early 2017."

Of course, for the most part, that's for Trump's enjoyment so whatever it costs the American taxpayers they'll just have to swallow the bitter pill.
