President Donald Trump’s family trips have cost tax payers $11.3 million dollars in one month, which almost as much as former President Barack Obama’s cost in a year. President Obama’s travel expenses totaled an average of $12.1 million in each of his eight years.

In January Eric Trump’s business trip to Uruguay cost taxpayers $97, 830 in hotel bills. Eric Trump was in Uruguay to promote the under-construction Trump Tower Punta Del Este. Later this month taxpayers will subsidize Ferric and Donald Trump Jr’s trip to the grand opening of the new Trump International Hotel and Tower in Vancouver, British Columbia.
