“President Donald Trump may want to cut the federal budget and says he wants to return tax dollars back to the American public. Even so, he sure does love to spend your money on his personal pastimes.

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, the Secret Service reportedly spent $7,470 on golf cart rentals for its agents and the president while at Trump’s private Florida club, Mar-a-Lago, according to federal purchase orders reviewed by USA Today. In total, the publication reports that the Secret Service has spent $144,975 on golf carts in the 11 months since Trump assumed office.

Golfing is such an integral part of Trump’s routine — he’s been on 81 trips to golf properties while in office — that the Secret Service had to sign an ongoing contract with Golf Cart & Utility Distributors, a Florida cart rental company, which now amounts to $69,430.”
