Trump not concerned about Mar-a-lago costs, criticism

Source: MSN/The Hill

President Trump isn't concerned about the rising costs associated with his regular trips to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., the White House press secretary said Wednesday.

Sean Spicer addressed the topic during his briefing, when asked by Fox 5 DC's Ronica Cleary if Trump has "any concerns about the pushback" from Florida residents and taxpayers about those costs.

"No, he feels great," Spicer said.

Spicer added that such criticism did not play into Trump's decision to stay in Washington, D.C., last weekend and noted that Trump plans to remain in town this upcoming weekend as well.

11. WHY should he worry, he's precedent

 

and our money is his money.....and he's gives less than a damn about mar-the-lago costing that area HUGE losses in revenue from many sources. Narcissists never care about others, rich or poor.

12. He is double dipping.

 

Not only are we being charged for this, but it is going into Putin's Puppet's pocket directly. The secret service is paying Trump to lease rooms, food. etc. More trips he takes & Melania's refusal to leave Trump towers, the more he grifts from us!

14. In a typical narcissistic talking head fashion the spokesman for the "guy" taking weekend vacation

says it all for the narcissistic megalomaniac:


"No, he feels great,"


Since he doesn't have to use his own jet and fuel, pay for the limo ride and that gas, no private security bills----------------amazing

15. No doubt.

Just because they were screaming and crying about the "massive costs", when they were lying about Obama's "profligate vacation spending, and laziness", doesn't mean they actually cared about presidential vacations and costs to taxpayers.

They just like screaming and crying, making everyone listen to their fake outrage and whinges. And they have zero values, integrity, or consistency. Complete liars and hypocrites, who don't give a shit about the country.

17. These swamp rats haven't thought once about the 100 million we've spent - so far.

Cleary if Trump has "any concerns about the pushback" from Florida residents and taxpayers about those costs.

"No, he feels great," Spicer said.

20. Airport in Lantana

is within 10 miles of Mar-A-Lago, and is losing huge amounts of money when Trump is in town. As a small airport, they do most of their business on weekends when people are off work and fly for pleasure or take flying lessons. They are not allowed to fly out from the airport while trump is in town. It is also costing West Palm Beach, where AF-1 lands, many thousands of dollars every time he comes to Mar-A-Lago (in addition to the costs to Palm Beach). West Palm Beach has applied for federal assistance to pay for the extra security, but so far it's a no go.

27. Actually, the entire Palm Beach County is being told taxes will go up

To pay for this.

We mainly voted for Hillary in PBC. PBC is blue, and diverse, and not Trumpers. Most of us are just regular Janes and Joes.

28. I wonder how homeowners near the airport feel.

All weekend long, no helicopter noise, no noise from private aircraft practicing landings and take-offs, just the quiet of a no-fly zone.

Peace and quiet.

32. That's all stuff

you get used to and only notice when it is gone. All the lost taxes for taxpayers and all the lost work for the local airport workers and businesses are more worrisome (including all the inconvenience to local traffic of all kinds).
