Former White House Ethics Chief Proposes 'Golf On Your Own Damn Dime Act' [View all]

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/walter-shaub-tump-golf-on-your-dime_n_5cfc4b2ee4b04e90f1ca69ea


The former White House ethics chief is sarcastically proposing a “Golf on Your Own Damn Dime Act of 2019.”

Walter Shaub, who served under President Barack Obama before leaving his post a few months after Donald Trump took office in 2017, pitched the mock law in response to Trump’s record number of golf trips to his own resort properties — even during official trips abroad.

The taxpayer tab for president’s pricey golf outings is now up to nearly $106 million, according to a HuffPost analysis. But what’s unique for a golfing president is that Trump owns the resorts he’s visiting, so the publicly funded trips also serve to finance and advertise his private businesses.

How about a law that says anytime POTUS visits a property on or adjacent to a golf course, he/she must pay for all costs incurred by the entourage from the minute he/she left the White House until he/she is back inside the White House? The Golf On Your Own Damn Dime Act of 2019
