THE COST OF OBAMA'S VACATIONS TO THE AMERICAN TAX PAYER

TRUMP MAKES A MAJOR ECONOMY MOVE ON THE WHITE HOUSE BUDGET AND FINDS OBAMA'S HAND WAS STILL IN THE COOKIE JAR

 AIR FORCE ONE THE ULTIMATE IN EXECUTIVE TRAVEL AND THE OBAMA VACATION MAGIC CARPET

President Trump is constantly looking for ways to economize on the cost of government. Like a frugal executive he often starts his search close to home. Recently he looked at the budget of the Presidential Office. He was suprised to find his predecessors hand still in the cookie jar with about twenty years of vacation funding at tax payer expense. Obama intended to use discretionary funds from the office of Presidential Visits and Vacations  for about $2.1 BILLION in vacation funding. Really! Obama is reported to have lined up funding for foreign trips for he and up to 24 members of his family plus staff and a dog sitter through the year 2036. Not expecting to find anything like this Trump had hired three outside accounting professionals to hunt for savings in the White House operations budgets. One of these outsiders eventually found and handed him the ledger with the $2.1 billion vacation funding through 2036 for Mr. Obama. Trump immediately cancelled his predecessor's plans and recalled all Secret Service agents scheduled to protect the Obamas out side of the United States. You may recall that on recent junkets abroad Mr, Obama said many defammatory remarks about his successor in the White House. Do the tax payers have to pay for this undermining of the elected head of state? 

 Of course nothing in Mr. Trump's order grounds Mr. Obama or restricts his travels in any way, as long as Mr. Obama pays for his travels and not the American Tax payer . Any travel within the United States receives free Secret Service Security. But if he wants to go to Bermuda with 24 of his closest buddies he has to pay the air fare and for private security while abroad. 
The White House sometimes a President  has just got to get away

 Discovery of this little boon doggle isn't Obama's only issue with the office of Presidential Travel and Vacations. He may have to repay the government for all those vacations that weren't official business. Mr. Obama took a lot of vacations. During his eight years in office records appear to indicate that he spent 692 days on vacation or nearly two years of his two terms in office. The bill could come to $214 million. Michelle may also have some payments due to the Office of Discretionaary Gifting Funds. This fund was supposewd to be for gifting visiting dignitaries. There appear to be some questionable purchases. 

 What a contrast. President Obama takes his full salary and apparently skips work for two years on installments, milks the expense funds and then attempts to continue to raid the White House cookie jar until 2036 after leaving the job. President Trump scrimps to reduce the cost to the tax payers of running the Presidency, donates his salary, and he is the one the House wants to impeach. Really people, could the differences berween the present president and any of the Democrats be more clear than this latest incident illustrates. Note you're not seeing any of this in the MSM. But we invite you to check it out for yourself even using such untrusted verification source as the typical Internet "fact checking" on line services. We the people have been had by the Obamas.
