The media is lambasting Donald Trump’s travel expenses as he goes back and forth from the White House to his Mar-a-Lago estate.
CBS News examined some new reports suggesting that Trump has already spent $10 million for Secret Service protection, local law enforcement, and Air Force One usage.
While it’s definitely pricey, we shouldn’t negate the shocking amount of money he’s already saved Americans. In a deal with Boeing, which still isn’t done, he’s save $1 billion:
“I refuse to fly in a $4.2 billion plane,” Trump said at his Melbourne, Fla., rally. “We’ve got that price down by over $1 billion and I probably haven’t spoken for more than an hour on the project. I got the generals in who are fantastic … but I told Boeing that isn’t good enough, the price is still too high.”
In addition to the billion dollars in savings, a wall will be exponentially more in savings.
A Center for Immigration Studies report shows that the Trump administration will save $64 billion over the next decade, an estimate Sheriff David Clarke calls a “low-ball.”
In conclusion, the media seems to have forgotten that Barack Obama increased the national debt by over $11 trillion and they didn’t say a word then — now they’ve all of a sudden become fiscally responsible?
