Trump’s Troublesome Travels

I read that Trump costs taxpayers $3 million every time he takes a trip to Florida to play golf. I won’t go into the utter immorality of a president using his/her people’s money for WEEKLY vacations (because, frankly, anyone with half a moral compass should understand that) but I will try to break that statistic down. Let’s do the numbers:

There are around 122 million residents who pay taxes in the U.S. Divide that by $3 million, and you get about $41 dollars per taxpayer.

There are 52 weeks in the year, so if he continues to take golfing trips on a weekly basis, each taxpayer will be paying $2,115 each year. If he does

$2,115. Every year. For vacation.
