    Trump on track to surpass all of Obama's travel costs in 2 years or less

    Remember when candidate Trump promised he’d rarely leave theWhite House because there was so much work to do?

    Remember when candidate Trump criticized Obamafor the costs of Obama’s travel habits?

    Well, it looks like Trump is on track to break Obama’s eight-yeartravel cost record within the first two years of his term, if not sooner.

    Donald Trump's travel to his private club in Florida has cost over an estimated $20 million in his first 80 days as president, putting the president on pace in his first year of office to surpass former President Barack Obama's spending on travel for his entire eight years. The outsized spending on travel stands in stark relief to Trump's calls for belt tightening across the federal government and the fact that he regularly criticized Obama for costing the American taxpayer money every time he took a trip.

    That didn't take long.

    I think that's comparing apples and oranges. Obama's travel costs as represented by the graphic are only for vacation. Meeting with world leaders is not generally considered a vacation, so the costs for Trump's travel should be treated as Obama's travel to do an apples to apples comparison. Lies, damned lies, and statistics (and all that).
    There are only two possibilities; one is that we are alone in the universe, the other is that we are not.
    Both are terrifying.

    Obama once flew Air Force One from Andrews to Norfolk.

    A 3 hr. drive by car.

    But WTH.Awpitt has a point ,and being the Trump hater he is he can stab us with it, and will.

    He is right Trump is doing a lot of traveling down to Fla.
    Hasn't gone to California to be on TV with a comedian yet though.

    They probably are, but it still doesn't change the fact that Trump goes to Fla. just about every week end.

    It cost 10 million bucks for him to fly to his own home in Florida 3 times?

    I'm not defending that either, just saying.

    Oh, and I'm not a Trump hater but I will point out the hypocrisy when he demonstrates it. He did criticize the last guy over travel costs. He did say he'd rarely leave the White House. That has not been the case.
