The Obama family has totaled tax payers a whopping $99,714,527.82 in travel expenses.
They have been pretending to be royalty, luxuriating on American tax dollars so that they can have a good time while overseas.
These trips by Obama goes beyond him using the government resources for the efficiency and safety of him and his family as former POTUS.
Michelle Obama alone had one vacation in February 2015 that cost this country a total of $64,807.41 in expenses.
The entire first family spent spring break in March 2014 in Key Largo, which cost the country $247,827.50!
Even though Obama and his family are no longer in the White House, they still get Secret Service protection, which all falls on to the backs of the tax payers. His lavish jet-setting lifestyle should definitely be questioned and put to an end.
Although Obama is no longer in office, he continues to receive Secret Service protection at taxpayer expense. In January, the Obama family traveled to Palm Springs, CA. The former president also spent a few weeks in French Polynesia. And all the while, taxpayers paid the protection tab.
For eight long years, the Obamas spent our tax dollars for a lavish jet-setting lifestyle. Many in the media only focus on President Trump’s travel, but Barack Obama continues to cost taxpayers with his luxury travel, and we aim to document it.
Of course, we are also actively tracking the travel expenses of President Trump. On May 4, we released records from the Department of the Air Force in response to FOIA requests that show President Trump’s flights to Mar-a-Lago for two weekends (in February and March) cost $1,281,420.00. And, as I told the Washington Post, since he is spending taxpayer dollars, Trump may want to consider using the presidential retreat of Camp David, a short helicopter ride from the White House, for his weekend getaways.
