If President wants to move out of the White House and onto one of his golf courses, there would be millions of Americans who’d be thrilled to say, “Bye, Felicia.”
Sadly, it wouldn’t be cheap. The Secret Service reportedly spent close to $7,500 on golf carts alone this Thanksgiving so they could protect the president while at his private golf course in Mar-a-Lago, according to a new report by USA Today.
Keep in mind, this taxpayer money is going straight to the club that he owns, now under the ownership of his children.
In September, the Secret Service signed a contract with Golf Cart & Utility Distributors, a Florida company. The contract amount has since risen to $69,430.
Since Trump was inaugurated, USA Today estimated that the Secret Service has spent $144,975 on golf cart rentals. That’s twice the average annual household income and just so much unnecessary spending.
Trump has reportedly spent 81 days at a golf course since becoming President. He has spent more than 100 days at Trump properties. He has spent zero near anywhere near my apartment, thank God.
For context, it costs approximately $5,000 to purchase a golf cart. But because Secret Service is renting, the taxpayers are consequently forced to pay for this crap.
Great game, Trump.
