President Trump's children upset some with Aspen vacation

It's Spring Break for the Trump family and some people aren't happy about it. President Trump's three oldest kids Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka are vacationing in Aspen, skiing with their families.

That means a bunch of Secret Service agents tagging along. A $12,208.25 contract by the agency with a local club for "recreational good rental/ski equipment lease" is reflected in the Federal Procurement Data System, according to NBC News.

People in Aspen have been seeing the Trumps everywhere. They were reportedly spotted leaving a popular eatery before doing some shopping. According to a local newspaper, they spent nearly $16,000 on rental ski gear.

While the Trump children and their families seem to be enjoying themselves, some people are really upset. One person voiced frustration on Twitter, saying, "You and I are paying for 100 Secret Service agents to go on vacation with Ivanka Eric, Jr, - their spouses and kids. #WASTE."

Another wrote, "I am tired of being their ATM machine." And finally, one user sent this out, "GOP: Taxpayers can't afford Meals on Wheels anymore, but they CAN afford to pay for Trump's kids to vacation in Aspen.
