Trump visits his golf course in West Palm

Tuesday, 18 Apr, 2017

President Donald Trump spent the weekend with his favorite people: the dues-paying members of his Mar-a-Lago Golf Club, which costs $200,000 to join, and their friends.

Given the frequency of President Trump's visits to Mar-a-Lago - and the significant costs surrounding any US president's travel plans - many news organizations have taken to calculating the financial burden of the "Southern White House".

"I've got no time to travel - America needs my attention now", Trump told the paper. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer has said the president's refusal to release his taxes could undercut his push for tax reform. Yeah. Not only is that not gonna happen, we definitely do not want our money back badly enough to put up with that. "It's a risky strategy".

Luckily, there's a new app to help locals out with that conundrum. He went to his golf club a few miles away in West Palm Beach.

Now, as president, Trump has made that title especially fitting, as he has reportedly spent 24 days at Mar-a-Lago already - something that his critics have certainly noticed.

"The late start in planning by the Trump White House points to a smaller and less ambitious Egg Roll than in previous years", the paper concluded. "But a club where people pay you as president to spend time in his company is new". This week, they took their request to federal court in NY and extended it to include visitor logs for Mar-a-Lago and Trump's Manhattan residence, Trump Tower.

"I don't know if this sends a message", Trump said at the White House. But a roadshow never materialised.

This president is the most vacationing-ass president in the history of presidents.

But Mr Spicer argued that a presidential roadshow on healthcare would not have changed the outcome, because Democrats had dug in against the plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act from the start. There is a clear value to Mar-a-Lago, though.

According to Judicial Watch, a conservative pro-transparency group, each of the president's trips to Mar-a-Lago costs taxpayers at least $1 million.

The President's limited travel stands in stark contrast with his approach during his campaign, when he kept up a rapid pace of events throughout the country.

NOAH BOOKBINDER: If anything, it's more important to know who's there because you don't have the usual protections and procedures that you have with the White House. And during Trump's March 18-19 stay, seven pilots crossed into restricted airspace; one, a small Cessna plane that wasn't in radio contact, was intercepted by two F-15E aircraft and a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter, NORAD said.
