Trump's Mar-a-Lago Thanksgiving to cost taxpayers millions of dollars

It'll be an expensive Thanksgiving for American taxpayers as President Trump spends the holiday at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

Newsweek reports that a single round-trip ticket for the president to visit the posh Florida property _may_ cost taxpayers between $2 million and $3.6 million, a total mostly made up of the costs of flying on Air Force One.

Trump has taken eight trips to the so-called winter White House during his time as president and has spent 25 days there in total. By the end of this Thanksgiving holiday, that number will be 30. Rounded up, that means taxpayers will have spent $16 million on his trips to Florida

Politico reports that Trump’s seven prior visits have left the county with a $3.5 million budget deficit from the president’s travel budget, a fee that the federal government has not yet reimbursed to the county.​
