    Dutch:

    Snopes did a comparison between Trump's travel expenses versus Obama's in late 2017. You can find updated information in a variety of places, but at that point in time, Obama's travel expenses averaged about $1,000,000 per month for his entire presidency. Although there are claims that Trump has averaged $16,000,000 per month, that number is not accurate. However, there is no doubt at all that Trump's travel expenses are significantly higher than Obama's travel expenses.

    What makes travel by presidents so expensive is that the bullet proof presidential limousine has to be flown out in advance of his trip as well as helicopters and who knows how many Secret Service staff for security. It is expensive for any president to travel anywhere because of all the "baggage" that has to accompany him.

    The Trump boys opened an new golf course in Dubai; their protection has cost millions. Just read the article. Yes the Trump family is plundering the taxpayer money. Why is n't there an "cap" on what an President and his family can spent? Again an omission in the Constitution.

    Schmidt, if these travels would "serve" this country, it would be OK, however most of the "family" outings are for the cat's ass. Like his rally's, golf courses, wasted trips to Hanoi, trips of the whole family to enrich themselves, you name it. Therefore it is urgently needed that strict rules are being made for the W.H. its President and family. As well an "operations manual" which exactly describes the limits of power which should be part of the "laws"under which an President can operate. Wake up America an country without proper laws or rules, may end up as Venezuela, if nothing is done to protect this country from con-men.
