Trump has spent more period at Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida( the Winter White House) than any of his other properties.

Every president deserves some down period theyre all human after all.

But, given the fact Trumps expensing taxation payers a lot of money and the fact he blamed President Obama for golfing andvacationing there are fair reasons to point out how much period hes spent away from DC.

Its estimated Trumpwill cost taxpayers millions more than Obama didin his eight years in office.

According to an analysis from The Washington Post, during the presidentsfirst month in office, he spent nearly a quarter of his time at Mar-a-Lago.

In total, Trump has spent seven weekends at Mar-a-Lago since becoming chairman, and each trip-up has expensed approximately $3.3 million, BBC News reports.

This means Trump has expensed taxpayers approximately $23 million on his journeys to Mar-a-Lago alone.

On top of this, the fact Melania Trump continues to live in Trump Tower in New York City instead of the White House is also expensing taxpayers a significant amount of money approximately $127,000 to $146,000 a day.

Additionally, Trump has golfed 13 periods since becoming president.

This means hes golfed at twice the rate of former President Obama, who golfed a total of 306 periods during his presidency, according to Golf Digest.

Trump often blamed Obama for golfing while chairman, but apparently its OK when he does.



On Thursday, April 6, Trump will welcome President Xi Jinping of China to his Mar-a-Lago resort.

As he does so, its worth questioning why the White House apparently isnt a good enough locating for Trump to host foreign leaders.
