The $3.6M cost is based on a Judicial Watch report for a trip Obama took from DC to Palm Beach. The problem is, that trip was actually DC > Chicago > Palm beach.Not sure where the other post is - what is the actual figure?
Interesting. If the number is 3M+ for that trip - I'm not buying that Trump's trips are only 1M
What was discussed in the other thread is that the single trip price tag of $3.6M is wrong for now. Even at the guessed of rate of $1M ( for now, since figures can't or won't be released ) 45 is still well on his way to excessive spending while asking all other forms of domestic government spending to cut back.As discussed in the other travel thread, the $3.6M is wrong.
So whether or not Trump's father was a billionaire or not is irrelevant and a deflection, Trump did inherit money & his business.Rubio has a point that Trump isn’t entirely a self-made man. Trump took over his father’s business, and he inherited money when his father died. Verifying the specific amounts remains difficult.
With the way Trump does things, I wouldn't be surprised if the actual cost today is far greater than $3.6M per trip.
Ah, but conversely you are not factoring in the cost of Melania Trump staying in New York and flying down to both D.C. and Florida all the time.
When Trump releases tax returns, we will revise costs per trip. As of now both are speculative, but no where near zero.With the way Trump does things, I wouldn't be surprised if the actual cost today is far greater than $3.6M per trip.
Good point. And where is Inaka off to this weekend? It all adds up.Ah, but conversely you are not factoring in the cost of Melania Trump staying in New York and flying down to both D.C. and Florida all the time.
