The Vacation Scam

It’s No Wonder Obama’s recent Speech at the Democrat’s National Convention went after President Trump.
Obama’s recent speeches are not to support his Democratic Party:
They are to slam Trump for taking away Obama’s taxpayer-paid next 20 years vacation!

He forgets his reign is over.

Trump cancels Vacations, and Refunds money to the American Taxpayers.

This was verified on Snopes as being true.


Obama was going to stick U. S. Taxpayers for $2.1 billion or so & here’s how we know:

Before Obama left office, he arranged with the State Department for a series of “official visits” to foreign countries spanning the next 20 years.

Using discretionary funds from the Office of Presidential Visits and Vacations, Obama was planning to use what would have been $2.1 billion in free, taxpayer paid vacations for him and up to 24 members of his family plus staff and even a dog sitter until the year 2036.

He would have, that is, until President Trump put a stop to it.

Trump, who is always looking for ways to save money, was presented with a ledger that contained all of the Obama travel plans and expenses.
The ledger was found by one of the workers Trump hired from outside the typical White House staff.
Trump immediately canceled the plans and recalled all Secret Service agents scheduled to protect the Obama’s anywhere outside of the United States.

The Obamas are also facing another new challenge at the hands of Trump.
They’re going to have to repay the government for all of those vacations

that weren’t official state business.

The bill, after some small allowances for days that were possibly work related, is for $214 million.

Of the 692 days the Obamas spent on vacation, almost none included any work at all. They ate, slept and golfed and Michelle was given shopping allowances from the Office of Discretionary Gifting Funds, which is supposed to be used to buy presents for visiting dignitaries.
