Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Getaway Offers Fodder for Critics
FEBRUARY 03, 2017
From U.S. News & World Report:
Now it’s President Donald Trump’s turn to be the target of the vacation critics. In office for two weeks, he is planning to spend this weekend at his posh seaside resort, Mar-a-Lago in Florida. And the criticism has begun.
Politico reports the trip could cost taxpayers more than $3 million, partly because of security and Air Force One expenses. Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, told Politico, “He should check out Camp David [the official presidential retreat in Maryland that’s a half-hour helicopter ride from the White House] and see if he can make better use of that.”
