Obama Travel Total Now Tops $105 Million
SEPTEMBER 15, 2017
The taxpayer tab for former President Barack Obama’s travel during two terms in office keeps climbing, according to new records obtained by Judicial Watch.
The conservative foundation announcedThursday that the total for security, airfare, hotels, and motorcades for the Obamas’ trips stands at $105,662,975.27.
Judicial Watch received additional documentation of costs from Freedom of Information Act lawsuits the group filed against the Department of Homeland Security. The tab for the trips has increased more than $5 million since the group reported on Obama’s travel costs in May.
