Secret Service Has Spent $35,000 On Golf Cart Rentals At Mar-A-Lago Since Inauguration

The Secret Service has spent more than $35,000 on golf cart rentals at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort since his inauguration, CBS News reported Friday.

CBS reviewed purchase orders showing $35,185 in costs for renting golf carts during Trump’s recurrent visits to his Trump-branded club in Palm Beach, Fla., where he made his 17th trip to the golf course of his 84-day presidency on Friday morning.

CBS News has estimated, based on a previous Government Accountabilty Office report, that each presidential trip to Mar-a-Lago cost taxpayers about $3 million.

Trump has now “visited one of his golf clubs on 20% of his days as president so far (17 golf course trips in 84 days),” according to NBC News reporter Bradd Jaffy.




Jaffy also noted that Trump has now “visited one of his golf clubs on 20% of his days as president so far (17 golf course trips in 84 days).”

The Hill adds:

Trump has come under fire for his frequent trips, which current estimates show have cost more than $20 million — nearly the amount President Obama spent on travel in his first two years combined. Obama spent approximately $97 million on travel, averaging $12.12 million per year in office.

Trump was relentlessly critical, mocking and chastising of former President Obama for indulging the same pastime, as evidenced by the following tweets:
