It’s about time that someone said something, and today, Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst said that Donald Trump’s many vacations to his Mar-a-Lago property in Florida are starting to bother her.
She also added that other members of the Republican body are starting to get irritated also, noting that she believes that the president should spend more time in Washington D.C.
“I do wish he would spend more time in Washington, D.C. That’s what we have the White House for.” “I think that has been bothering not just me but some other members of our caucus,” Ernst said of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago trips.
Trump has spent 7 of the last 13 weekends at the so called “Southern White House” in Palm Beach, Fla. The visits have caused no small controversy because of the huge costs related to such frequent presidential travel.
One cost estimate by CNN for the trips was far above $20 million, and that put Trump on course to spend more on travelling in less than 1 year than Barack Obama spent in a total of eight years.
Prior to his election, President Trump heavily criticized President Obama for his supposedly excessive travel and vacations, stating that the former-president should spend more time in Washington to work instead of playing golf on the weekends.
Maybe a few other courageous Senators and Congressmen will say what apparently others are afraid to say. Stop wasting our tax dollars, and stay in the White House…and WORK!
