Despite the fact that millions of Americans are struggling just to put food on the table, Barack Obama decided to embark on his annual multi-million dollar Christmas vacation to Hawaii with his family this week. Now, the amount of tax dollars Obama has spent on his Hawaiian getaways during his eight years in office has leaked, and the number is downright staggering.
The Washington Times reported that taxpayers have spent at least $35 million on Obama’s Hawaiian vacation since he entered the White House. These expenses included golfing at oceanside courses, dinners at fancy restaurants, and travel costs for the Obama family and their enormous entourage.
The Obamas’ current 17 day-vacation requires dozens of Secret Service agents, military personnel and other government employees to guarantee the family’s safety. This means there are lengthy expenses in hotel costs for each person on the trip.
Once again, the Obamas’ chose to rent a multi-million dollar oceanfront mansion in Kailua, one of the wealthiest oceanfront neighborhoods in Hawaii.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton spoke out to slam Obama for shamelessly using millions and millions of our tax dollars to fund his lavish vacations during his time in office.
“The Secret Service and the Air Force are being abused by unnecessary travel,” Fitton said. “Unnecessary presidential travel for fundraising and luxury vacations on the taxpayers’ dime would be a good target for reform for the incoming Trump administration.”
