As Hurricane Dorian threatened to ravage Florida and other parts of the United States, President Donald Trump cancelled a scheduled visit to Poland in order to monitor the hurricane's developments from the United States.
The President raised eyebrows, however, when footage of him golfing instead of working was released on Monday.
After Donald Trump Announced He's Going to Mar a Lago for 16 Days, His Old Tweets Slamming Obama for Going on Vacation Just Came Back to Haunt Him
President Donald Trump plans to travel to his Palm Beach, Florida club, Mar-a-Lago, over the course of 16 days between December 21 and January 6 according to FAA flight alerts. The private members-only club charges a $200,000 membership fee plus $14,000 annually for a chance to hobnob with the President and perhaps gain an ambassadorship or other presidential favor.
The Trump Organization owns and profits from the club.
Everyone deserves a vacation. Many of us get it: The average American receives 15 days of paid vacation per year after 25 years on the job (23 percent of workers receive no vacation time at all). But in three months in office, President Trump’s frequent need for R&R at a variety of the luxury properties he owns has cost taxpayers more than Obama spent in an entire year.
