    I n the meantime the "bills" for Trumps travels add up ; it is now already well over $50 million or more. I don't understand an government who allows all of this. Like his trips to his golf courses as well "rally's" which have nothing at all to do with governing, just to boost his ego etc. Also the secret service bought a bunch of golf carts for about $35,000 to drive around to chase Trump on the course. The secret service in Trump Tower did cost $135,000 per day; they stopped service there now because of an dispute about the cost of the apartment (floor) rental cost for the secret service. Let alone the cost of air travel on short distances with big planes, helicopters, secret service and other travel related costs. etc. Why is n't there an tax payer revolt or protest in the government?

    Just to think all of those right wing nut jobs used to whine and bitch about Obama's expenditures. Just think about how much more it's costing us to protect his extended family and friends (lobbyists).

    Some people in NJ wished he'd stayed away for his 17 day leave of absence (vacation) because him being there is so disruptive to the residents.

    Dutch, How safe is Air Force 1. Could it hit something like a Cessna 172 and survive?

    Hey , let's all go on vacation it's August fuckit who wants to work? Amiright? I sure wish I had the government to pay my way like the fat idiot . Why can't I have a measley 10 million dollars to waddle around and get drunk and grope that hot little Hope Hicks chic she is very cute. Why can't I get a girlfriend like that ? And a ten million dollar vacation ? I am an American. . I was born in America. I used to watch the Andy Griffith show for Crist sake. I deserve a ten million dollar vacation and and an all American girl friend who has perfect skin.

    Call me the devil , call me a dreamer , call me , 330 scarsells 4000 . I will be packed and ready to go .my dream vacation ,which will last all the way through August almost , halfay at least. It could change. First I want to see the pyramids. From the sky no need to land . Then we have to land in West Virginia . I wish to fish. Camp out and hike around and get dirty.

    Now I don't need any ten million dollar tent or no ten million dollar sleeping bag , I have stuff . One time I bought a tent from wall Mart and then I returned it and the gave me a gift card. True story , I bought a _________ and they refunded my money ,to me.

    So I have to spend ten million dollars so I will buy some land in Hawaii and camp there. Done.

    Chances if this happening are very small; however there are more chances than that. Take for instance the V22 Osprey,quite a few have crashed, That plane never should been built; the weight and balance is way too delicate as well the heavy rotating engines is way too much mass on the end of the stubby wing which actually is not an decent wing; if not perfectly maintained it will shake itself apart. The old "banana" helicopter (tandum rotors) was an better design. It is an stupid "way over budget" design, just like the F35 . The big question as with Airforce One is the maintenance; especially at age. However since this aircraft is not in commercial service, the amount of flight "hours" are like an seldom used Ferrari. Thus in other words the thing will last for a while; Cessna's likely will not hit it, because the "fat king" will make sure the sky is clear, so that "us" the stupid travelling people have flight delays because of it ; Mr King has to golf or do something else stupid on tax payers cost which is much more important.

    The cost of having Trump keep adding up; all his trips "for nothing" adds up; now already over 100 million. The last few trips to Arizona and Texas were also an total waste ; having an "rally" as well visiting TX (not the disaster site) was a waste of time and money; only promoting himself and his "hat". He's going there again on Saturday and in the meantime to Missouri? Cost nothing of course. The budget for the secret service is already empty. What an stupid country to allow all of that. Once he gets kicked out ; what will this "experiment" have cost the taxpayer; what did we get for his "reign"?. The only achievement is that he undid everything Obama did.

    Something little but still something. Melania was dressed like a college girl tagging along with her dad while he took a trip through the plant. Her hair was in a cute little pony tail sticking out the back of her ball cap. I don't think she understood or portrayed the misery and suffering caused by 1700 square miles of flooded property, 50,000 houses destroyed , 550,000 cars flood water ruined, people sleeping in cots above 6 inches of water with snakes and rats swimming around.

    Again it proves the Trump family is clueless about the world around them; they live in an fantasy world; have no feelings except their wallet. Did he ever say anything about the 10 sailors who lost their lives?

    No, not a word about 10 sailors, even when they visited Texas, not any meetings with flood victims, but there were Trump supporters there.
