travel, and we understand, I believe, in close proximity to his firing Secretary Perry took private jets, we understand that Kellyanne Conway was along for among Secretary Price’s rides. At the very same time, the president has now spent I think 17 weekends at taxpayer expense for the flights, either at Mar-a-Lago or Bedminster at the expense of$180,000 an hour for Flying force One, and he’s going to take the airplane to a fundraiser in North Carolina this weekend.So here’s the question: Is he not setting the tone that informs his cabinet members that this type of misuse
of taxpayer loan, or overuse if you will, is OKAY? […] SANDERS: The president certainly hasn’t been there every weekend, and every weekend that he’s traveling no matter where he is the president is working. He’s hosted foreign leaders on several of those journeys, which have actually caused some terrific accomplishments. They’ve led certainly, to putting more pressure– extraordinary pressure– on North Korea in large part since of the relationship advancement that’s taken place at a few of those weekends that you’re assaulting for.This is a president that is dedicated to assisting move his agenda forward and certainly I believe that those weekends have been really effective in doing that.Sanders declared that in spite of the luxury accommodations, Trump’s conferences with foreign authorities at his resorts”has actually resulted in some fantastic accomplishments”including”additional pressure– unmatched pressure on North Korea” as that nation continues to pursue
its nuclear ambitions.The defense was available in response to concerns about the growing high-end travel scandal in his administration, likewise referred to as “Billionaire Air.” Numerous Cabinet secretaries have been caught utilizing personal jets to crisscross the country on the taxpayers ‘dime.Trump officials have actually racked up well over $1 million utilizing this
mode of travel, however the increasing criticism of this abuse of tax dollars led to the resignation of Health and Human being Services Secretary Tom Price.Other authorities, including Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and EPA chief Scott Pruitt, have actually refused to repay the federal government for their journeys and are under internal investigation.Energy Secretary Rick Perry and Transport Secretary Elaine Chao are likewise frequent fliers on luxury jets. Trump’s top consultant , Kellyanne Conway, is under congressional analysis for her travel on private air as well.Trump has been knocked for his weekend
trips considering that the beginning of his presidency, however he overlooked America and set the mold for his inner circle to follow. Now, America is being stuck to the bill.That Americans are being asked to think Trump’s routine weekend golf journeys have anything
to do with worldwide diplomacy is absolutely unreasonable.
