8. Coming up with the true cost to taxpayers will not be easy.

It is not like you going to a non-VA hospital. His doctors, nurses, and technicians can't be counted because they make the same amount per day whether or not Trump is there. The suite he uses is there every day whether or not he is there but you can add the cost of the electricity. X-rays, scans, and MRI you could count the cost for the electricity and things like swabs. Blood tests, you can add the cost of needles, vials, and bandaids. Medicines you can count the amount the hospital pays for them. O2 and delivery means can be counted. Can't say for certain but the cost to taxpayers is probably less than 5% of how much you would pay in a non-VA hospital. Misc. like food you can count.
