In 2015, Trump said he would ďrarely leave the White House because thereís so much work to be done.Ē Now, he is golfing and visiting a Trump-branded property every few days.
Iím deeply concerned with Trumpís taxpayer funded trips to Trump properties, Mar-a-Lago.
Trump is putting taxpayer dollars directly in his pocket by visiting his properties so frequently. The Secret Service has spent tens of thousands of dollars on golf carts alone at Mar-a-Lago, and thatís the tip of the iceberg.
While Trump spends our tax dollars at Mar-a-Lago, heís also hosting high-profile meetings with foreign heads of state there, like the Prime Minister of Japan. Talk about a photo op for his own property.
After Election Day, Mar-a-Lago doubled its membership fees to $200,000. Thatís a lot of money in Trumpís pocket.
Nobody should be allowed to profit from the presidency. Iíve had enough. Itís time for our representatives in Congress to stand up to Trumpís abuse of power and waste of taxpayer dollars.
Trumpís trips to Mar-a-Lago have already cost $25 million. Thatís enough to pay for over 2,000,000 Meals on Wheels.
If Congress continues to sit on its hands, our representatives should be held accountable for their complicity to Trumpís corruption. Iíll remember their inaction when I step into the voting booth.
