No Vacation for Trump

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Get Trump back to work.

On the campaign trail, then-candidate Donald Trump lambasted his opponents for lacking stamina and promised he would never take a vacation while in office. Now, Trump’s own stamina seems to be failing him; just months into the job, and already he wants a few weeks to kick back and recharge the batteries.

Trump’s plan is to spend a luxurious 17 days unwinding at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. While the average American gets an average of around eight short days of vacation a year, Trump will have more than double that amount of time to enjoy Bedminister’s golfing greens, lavish cottages and poolside bistro. It all sounds lovely, but what happened to Trump’s promise to never take a vacation while in office?

If you believe Trump should get back to work, then sign this petition demanding he cancel his holiday.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

On the campaign trail, you said you would never take a holiday while working for the American people. Now, you’re taking a 17 day golfing vacation. Comparably, Barack Obama spent half that amount of time on Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts during his first year in office.

So far, it seems like Obama did a better job of meeting your campaign pledge than you have. While this is far from your only broken campaign promise, it’s nonetheless one of the easiest for you to keep. After all, to honor your promise, all you need to do is turn up to work.

We therefore call on you to cancel your vacation and get back to the office. You have work to do.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    you’re unfit to be president anyway!

    • Trump is very fit. Learn the truth and stop protests that are built on lies/fake/false media.

      • No, lies come from the 41 character tweets this illegitimate president uses to spread his truth. Which, by the way, is not THE truth.

      • Shasha – To help break the spell of your little fantasy about how great Trump is, would you please consider doing the following: Go to YouTube and look up ‘outrageous’ or ‘disgusting’ things Trump has said and watch him speak – see for yourself; read some of his equally awful tweets, and see for yourself; start thinking for yourself, and doing in-depth research about Trump and his past history from a wide variety of sources.
        Please see for yourself what he is really like. Don’t just believe what certain people at certain news sources say.

    And just how many vacations did Obama take? President Trump will vacation on HIS own dime, unlike Obama who vacationed non stop at the tax payers expense. Not only did we pay for all his many, many vacations, but we paid for his family & friends to vacation as well! We are even paying his mother-in-law a salary for the rest of her life. Trump is taking no salary. If there was one thing Obama did very well, it was spend the tax payer’s money for his own extravagant pleasure! You need to get a grip & start caring about America instead of focusing all your energy hating this President!

    • Barbara Porter says:

      If you actually believe that, You are one that believes in alternative facts. Trump may have said he was donating his salary, but if it is true, he did so at the expense of everyone else. Plus, you talk about security for extended family. Trump’s security costs are far and away higher than any other President. Just Google Trump and his security costs, and you will see. Lastly, if you think Trump isn’t gouging the taxpayers just because he goes to his own properties, you are mistaken. He is 70 years old, and he will not change. He has always taken advantage of and scammed everyone he can get away with. What you find acceptable in a President is reprehensible.

      • When he goes to his own properties he’expensive, as all his security people have to stay at his hotel, which a) is expensive and b) the money from the hotel goes to him anyway! A double whammie!!!!

      Trump has been spending tax payers money on his personal luxuries and recreation since he got into office..there has been countless articles on it and how he has used the presidential office to enrich himself and his family. he is the most corrupt and soon it will all be revealed ..no problem on him getting time off ..he ‘ll be taking vacation in jail where he belongs soon1 soon!
      He never should have been president to begin with!!!

    • Delusional! How many taxpayer dollars went to protect the do nothing First Lady to stay in New York? Ostensibly so Barron could finish school there. In addition to those dollars, there were other costs. And, let’s not forget, the Drumpf made money off the Secret Service having to headquarter in his building. His vacation dollars may be on his dime but he’s making big dollars off it. You’ve also forgotten how much money you’ve paid so the First Kids could conduct personal business dealings abroad. #45 May be making a show of not taking a salary but you can guarantee, he’s making money off his position. He has already taken how many vacation days? Oh yeah, even one is more than he said he would. One of many lies that his followers are quick to justify. President Obama, if you’ll bother to check, has taken far fewer in his 8 years in office than this illegitimate con man has already. President Obama did many, many things well that benefited the nation. He served our nation well with love and honor for it. I don’t expect you to acknowledge or admit it, but I’ll guarantee you are benefiting from his actions. Just in case you’d like to take your own advice, do some legitimate research before you spout nonsense. Case in point, First Lady, Michelle Obama’s mother receives NO salary. That has been debunked many times over. Your addiction to Faux News is showing. My energy is directed to attempting to minimize the damage this man child is wreaking on my country, your country, everyone’s country. It’s true I hate what he is doing. I can probably even give you the one about hating him. You, however, have no right to question my love for my country. At least I’m willing to fight to preserve it. That means I start by dealing with real, verifiable facts, not alternative ones.

      • It’s really disgusting when you guys use his real name as an insult. What is in your mind when you do that? So what that his real name was Drumph? What does that matter? The fact that you guys keep using it as a punchline is probably why they changed it in the first place! I just think it’s so pathetic to use the last name like that McFarlin (ha ha ha ha ha). Not funny when it’s your last name being mocked huh.

        • Couldn’t care less. My maiden name was Goforth. Make fun all you want. Go for it. Ha ha
          Ha ha ha. My reason has nothing to do with what his name WAS. It’s his attempt to distance himself from immigrants so he can attack them like he is not from immigrant stock. Hypocrite. I’m sure that escapes you. Lastly, again nothing to do with what his last name WAS, I prefer not to give HIM recognition by using his name. He Who shall not be named. Shame on me.

    • Peggy Crowl – Get your facts right about Trump. He is as corrupt and has proven this many times. All this bastard Trump thinks about is making the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. He couldn’t care a shit about the Middle,lower income earners and the poor. It’s all about him (Trump) and his corrupted ways.

    • Tracey Aquino says:

      Peggy, you are probably the DUMBEST moron I’ve come across on ForceChange. Trump could be beating the shit out of you and you’d still scream “IT’S OBAMA’S FAULT!!!” between each hit. Go suck a cock.

  3. Olga Troyan says:

    Look at the bright side, at least he won’t be doing any damage while on vacation. Let him rest in peace.

    • I was not aware that trump had done anything other than make america a laughing stock worldwide.He has enlarged his personal fortune on the backs of working people.The usa does not give its people a fair deal,in medine they have to pay,a disgrace.How can he enjoy himself when creating such misery

  4. Jacqui Skill says:

    The only vacation trump should get is to jail!

  5. Wendy Morrison says:

    I totally agree with Trump’s only bacation spot os on a jail cell! Presidents of the United States should NOT any vacation!!! Their job is 24/7!!!

  6. Actually, the less time Trump spends in the “Dump,” the less damage he does. It’s amazing how many anti-American policies he tries to enact. Now he wants to sell our national parks to his friends. Tomorrow, another travesty against what Americans hold dear. Keep him away from Washington, DC, and bar access to his twitter account till the impeachment is completed. Just make him pay for his vacations; no tax dollars!

  7. Beth Marie says:

    Ridiculous! What a waste of time. Will not support this. Obama and other presidents have taken extended vacations!

    • TRUE!!!

    • True, and well deserved I’m sure. This, however, is beyond over the top. And from the man, I mean man child, who denigrated President Obama for taking any vacation. It’s not the vacation that’s the problem, it’s his past, prior, provable statements. I have to call foul on the hypocrisy.

  8. As detailed above: Delusional! How many taxpayer dollars went to protect the do nothing First Lady to stay in New York? Ostensibly so Barron could finish school there. In addition to those dollars, there were other costs. And, let’s not forget, the Drumpf made money off the Secret Service having to headquarter in his building. His vacation dollars may be on his dime but he’s making big dollars off it. You’ve also forgotten how much money you’ve paid so the First Kids could conduct personal business dealings abroad. #45 May be making a show of not taking a salary but you can guarantee, he’s making money off his position. He has already taken how many vacation days? Oh yeah, even one is more than he said he would. One of many lies that his followers are quick to justify.

I can probably even give you the one about hating him. You, however, have no right to question my love for my country. At least I’m willing to fight to preserve it. That means I start by dealing with real, verifiable facts, not alternative ones. Let me point out the problem. It’s his hypocrisy. I wouldn’t take vacation. There’s so much to do. Yes, there is, so why aren’t you doing it? But, let’s defend the illegitimate, lying con man. It’s OK. We understand you don’t know any better.
