Here’s How Much Trump’s Golf Trips Have Cost Taxpayers

*If you didn’t already know, President Trump loves playing golf. So much so that we think his entire Presidency was probably laid out on the greens.

The funny part, however, is that his love for the sport hasn’t made him any good at it and some have even hinted at the fact that he is a notorious cheat.

Ironically enough, he used to bash President Obama quite a lot for golfing while in office.

What Forbes Had to Say About it All

Forbes had noted that the first time the new President hit the golf course was within the first 2 weeks. Obama, on the other hand, didn’t even think about playing a game till he had spent about 3 months in the Oval Office. What’s more? Obama had used the local golf courses and didn’t even leave Washington until about 7 months.

Forbes was very clear in mentioning that one reason why Donald Trump’s golf trips were so much more is because he inherited a better economy than Obama. The latter had actually gotten where he was during the Great Recession.

So What’s The Magic Number?

According to Forbes’ findings, the extensive golf outings of Donald Trump’s tenure till date have cost the American tax payers about $105 million. To emphasize a little more on the pace at which he is spending this money, Forbes forecasts that the Presidential habit is going to cost the taxpayers north of $340 million very soon.

Donald Trump has been found to have played about 88 rounds of the game since he became President and has done so over a course of 193 days. Compared to President Obama’s 76 outings in his overall term, this is overkill.

When He Was Asked Earlier About His Golfing Habit

“I love golf, but if I were in the White House, I don’t think I’d ever see Turnberry again. I don’t think I’d ever see Doral again,” said President Donald Trump to Huffington Post. He continued to say, “I don’t ever think I’d see anything. I just want to stay in the White House and work my ass off.”

Well, as Forbes pointed out, the President is not only spending the taxpayers money on golf but he is actually failing horribly at it!
