Trump Doesn’t Want Voters to Know How Much His Family’s Trips Cost Taxpayers

Westlake Legal Group dbYHIjRpRXRZHhOrLM7QJVF7DACbqYOCk0AvWBTcvEo Trump Doesn’t Want Voters to Know How Much His Family’s Trips Cost Taxpayers r/politics

I’ll have to find the article, but it was about how on weekends that the President is coming to town, the room rates at Mar-A-Lago (which are exorbitant by any standards) are easily double, but again those rates don’t even apply to the Federal Government, which very correctly sets limits on this sort of grifting.

A few things to note—

“A few months after Trump’s inauguration, the Department of State proposed a contract that would pay $200,000 for all room costs for federal employees who stay at Mar-a-Lago over the first term of his presidency. But Mar-a-Lago rejected the government’s proposal. Instead, Trump’s resort bills the government the maximum permitted by federal rules: 300 percent of the government’s per diem rate, which works out to $546 per night.”

“Mar-a-Lago refused government requests to waive the costs of its “function room” for press and other official meetings in April of 2017, leading to a near-violation of a $3,500 government spending cap. Last year, Trump signed a law that lifted that cap, known as the “micro-purchase threshold,” from $3,500 to $10,000. The law does not appear to have been aimed at facilitating spending at Mar-a-Lago, but it allows the club to avoid additional government contracting rules when charging sums below $10,000.”

“Many of the expenses incurred by White House staff are arranged and paid for by the White House’s Office of Administration. These expenses are not required to be made public. The same goes for Secret Service spending to protect the president on such visits. (The Government Accountability Office released a report last month evaluating spending at Mar-a-Lago in February and March of 2017 and found that a total of $60,000 was spent at the hotel during four trips; the figure ran to $13.6 million when costs for plane travel, secret service, security, and other logistics were included.)”

but wait, there’s more… 🙁
