The bill for President Obama’s golf and fundraising gallivanting for two months has become public and has much of social media outraged.
The figures, obtained by Judicial Watch from the U.S. Department of the Air Force, detail Obama’s expenditures for just travel in the months of February and March and are as follows:
- Obama’s February 14, 2015, golf outing to Palm Springs required a five-hour flight, costing taxpayers a total of $1,031,685.
- Transportation for Obama’s February 19 day trip to Chicago cost taxpayers $619,011.00.
- Transportation for Obama’s March 2015 fundraising trip to Los Angeles cost taxpayers $1,980,835.20.
- Obama’s March 28, 2015, golf outing to Palm city required a 3.9-hour flight, costing taxpayers $804,870.30.
The Secret Service has not yet responded to Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act request for security costs.
