Trump: Stop Wasting Taxpayer Dollars on Weekend Getaways

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Stop spending millions of taxpayer dollars on travels to Mar-a-Lago resort.

Donald Trump has already spent over 10 million in taxpayer dollars during his weekend trips to his Trump-brand Mar-a-Lago resort. If these exploits and weekend getaways continue, Trump will have cost tax payers hundreds of millions after only one term, compared to President Obama’s final price tag of $97 million over eight years.

Not only are the financial costs of such constant trips troubling, but the security measures in place at this resort are also questionable. Only recently, Trump was seen going over important national security papers with the Prime Minister of Japan in the resort’s open dining area.

Weekend trips to Mar-a-Lago aren’t the only Trump family exploits costing Americans money. His wife’s refusal to live in the White House and instead remain in Trump Tower is costing the City of New York roughly $500,000 per day. Taxpayers are also footing the bill for the Trump sons’ trips to foreign countries as they open new Trump properties. Sign the petition and demand that Trump actually do his job and end these superfluous and unneeded vacations.


Dear Mr. President,

If you’re so worried about the national budget, perhaps you should take a step back and reflect on your own spending instead of the money spent on the National Endowment for the Arts, Meals on Wheels, and cancer research. Your trips to Mar-a-Lago have already cost taxpayers over $10 million

In addition, security for your sons’ business trips (a business from which you have as of yet failed to remove yourself) is being funded by taxpayers, while your wife’s time in Trump Tower is costing the City of New York about $500,000 per day.

These costs will far outnumber President Obama’s eight-year travel costs. Being President of the United States should not come with weekend getaways. To save taxpayers money, I demand that your trips to Mar-a-Lago be brought to an end.

    He is out of control- he must spend his own money!

    • Yes, why is he spending taxpayer’s money when he has a ton of money himself?
      Trump is cutting essential services for the poor, for endangered species, foreign aid for starving people in Africa, etc, all the while using American people’s money for his weekend excursions?! That’s so disgusting!

      • What is really disgusting, denno, is that you snowflakes didn’t make a sound while your liar in chief obumma was golfing every other day…and incidentally, he golfed when he should have been at the funeral of an American Hero and Patriot…but his golf was more important. You liberals are disgusting, come to think of it!

        • Oh, give me a break! Obama was a president with more class on his little finger than Trump has in his whole body. What will it take you people to wake up and see him for what he really is: a man-child narcissist who is a spoiled brat and unqualified for his job. Trump is going to get us in worse trouble than every before. Make American Great again? For who? His rich buddies, that is who! And all the cut he is doing to programs will only hurt people, not help them. He could stop building that wall and wasting money there, and he could have his rich buddies take a cut in pay, and he could NOT increase military, which is already a massive spending amount to begin with. We could use that money to take care of people in our country. Trump wants war and he will get us all killed, the way he is going about things.

        • Neville Bruce says:

          No, it’s we arrogant anonymous, self-deceiving, fact-denying, anti-liberal idiots who need to be smart enough to see our mistakes, strong enough to admit them, and wise enough to change. Trump IS the swamp, and so are the profiteers behind him. They’re using him to ram-raid the country’s protections, and will abandon him when he hits the fan, while they laugh all the way to the bank. When we’re down and out because of the GOP traitors to the US, only liberals will be trying to help us.

  2. Gen Lovyet Agustsson says:

    no more money!

  3. Seriously, Obama and Bush took more vacations then anyone. Give it a rest. The constant pettiness is not helping move our country forward. He is not taking a salary for God’s sake so deal with it and move on. So sick of this foolishness.

  4. I don’t think it’s petty to object to a president using hundreds of millions of tax dollars for their own pleasure, while CUTTING expenditures for the poor and needy, for endangered species, for foreign aid, for protection of the environment, etc – whether it’s Obama, Bush, Trump or whoever. I don’t care what president does this – it’s just wrong.
