The final Obama vacation is estimated at $5 million dollars, bringing the total taxpayer cost for 8 years of Obama vacations at $90 million dollars.
What a waste.
From Washington Examiner:
Before leaving, President Obama decried the partisanship in the nation he had hoped to heal during his eight years. And he indicated that he is ready to resume criticizing President-elect Trump.
According to spending estimates culled through Freedom of Information Act suits filed by taxpayer watchdog Judicial Watch, the trip is likely to cost taxpayers $5 million, bringing the total travel tab of the first family to $90 million.
The White House has said that there will be little public work done during the vacation. “Aside from the president’s visit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe which will be advised separately, the president and first family do not have any scheduled public events during their time in Hawaii,” said the White House.
