The United States moves its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem next week in defiance of the Palestinians and most of the world, likely further heightening tensions at a time of tumult in the region. US President Donald Trump is set to make good on his pledge in December when he broke with decades of precedent and recognised the disputed city as Israel’s capital to global outcry.

“The tax money Trump has spent on golf carts could have bought 54,095 school lunches”


SALON

 

“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.”

“We’re happy to see all of these changes to the original search warrant that are going to protect the constitutional rights of innocent internet users, which is what we have been fighting for from the beginning,” said DreamHost General Counsel Christopher Ghazarian.” MORE
