Well CNN in this Youtube vid seems to be correct here, Trump said one thing on the campaign trail and now is doing another.
Yes, it is amazing that CNN is finally covering presidential vacation costs.
But two important distinctions, Trump is actually visiting his real home from his temporary White House residence. The 2nd is that if Trump were not president he could still do the same thing.
One point I would like CNN to answer is how much is Trump charging the GVT (e.g., Secret Service) to stay at Mar A Largo?
Something that was revealed during the last Presidency about the WH few seem to know much about. The POSTUS put off security renovations until he left the WH. It was thought to be Trump would not be able to stay in the WH during the first year of his Presidency. The trips to Mar A Largo are due to these security renovations. Having him in the WH at all is impressive given the WH has construction going on. 171 posted on 4/16/2017, 10:10:52 AM by zaxtres
Hey CNN why dont we compare the price tags of these vacations with the a@@clown and his wife and family, now thats news!
Why are you accepting the false narrative? Trump has many working meetings during these Florida weekends. Also, are your weekends considered vacation?
I figured President Trump was going to Mar A Lago because it was the only place he could conduct business without being spied upon. No bugs, no taps, no one casually listening.
Trolling on Easter?
To be so petty as to think that weekend golf, etc. even compares to the actual foreign and expensive domestic vacations Ubama and his brood took nearly every 2 months is laughable.
He goes to his OWN HOME and meets with foreign leaders and hundreds of government officials. Hardly what I would call a vacation.
AND, it is more secure than the White House. Obummer can’t bug Mar-A-Lago.
Did you actually watch the vid? Trump basically said he was going to stay in the White House.
And yes I agree he works there, and I agree with him about the need to get out of that culture of corruption in DC.
But Trump’s campaign words do not match his actions. But as I have said for years as with Bush, there is a big difference between going to your home you own and living it up on the taxpayer dime.
That’s what I think. The White House is bugged, every room, every computer, every phone. He needs to leave it to get his work done.
Ha...I bet this: "No bugs, no taps, no one casually listening"...really chaps the MSM...Libs and associated communists.
VERY FAKE MEDIA = cnn
Interesting that you say “his” supporters. By posting crap like this it is very obvious that you are not one of Trump’s supporters. Another distinction that you failed to mention, is that Trump is actually conducting business when he is at Mar a Lago.
He has hosted several foreign leaders including the Chinese president and the PM of Japan. Unlike the previous occupant of the White House, who did not have an actual residence to return to, Trump lives at Mar a Lago part of the time amd the Secret Service really has no choice but to protect it in spote of the costs.
Only CNN would consider going to one’s home a vacation. President Trump is just working from home.
Another freeper wanting to throw Trump under the bus. Congrats!
I would ask: what is it with Democratic presidents who refuse to grow up and own homes that they visit when not in the WH? You know, the ones who vacation for several weeks at Hawaiian resorts, eat Kobe beef and sushi flown in from Japan or hang out for a month on Martha’s Vineyard like both the Obamas and Clintons?
Think about that. Trump has owned Mar a Lago for at least 30 years. Like an adult.
...and a LOt more private too!
Doubt he’s being ‘wiretapped’ there!
Vacation: “a period of suspension of work, study, or other activity, usually used for rest, recreation, or travel; recess or holiday:”
More FAKE NEWS from CNN. From all news accounts I’ve seen, the President works 16 hours a day in Washington, in New York City, at Mar-a-Lago and during travel in between and on the golf course.
Just more proof you can’t trust a syllable these jerks utter.
Is Obama back from Tahiti yet?
Perhaps you would have been happier if Hillary won.
