Proficient scam artists like Team Trump are not bound by a belief system, but instead, by what the ‘mark’ believes in. They then have all kinds of excuses for not following through in their actions. Things have changed, nobody knew it would be this hard, or I never said that to begin with.
One thing that Team Trump has in common with other scammers is that they don’t mind spending other people’s money. Forget about Team Trump being elected on a wave of fiscal responsibility – there are other needs that come first.
Social programs to aid the poor, the old and the sick are being gutted while travel and security is on the rise. Such indulgence sickens me. Check below:
“The 27 different agencies it surveyed then reported a 49-percent increase in costs for protecting senior officials over the preceding three years, from $19.1 million in 1997 to $28.5 million in 1999. And that was before 9/11 drastically accelerated the speed at which the nation’s security state expanded.
The fact that Trump’s Cabinet officials have their own personal security details is Normal, as is the fact that the level of security being provided to at least some Trump officials is above and beyond what was given to their respective predecessors.
None of that changes the infuriating reality that the Trump administration is spending money to beef up the protection of its own top officials as it simultaneously attempts to cut spending drastically for carrying out the important missions of those same governmental agencies. Even so, it’s worth remembering that money spent on the former is but a drop in the bucket compared to the latter.” http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/04/11/betsy_devos_scott_pruitt_have_their_own_security_details_is_that_normal.html
“Trump’s frequent trips to his palatial Florida resort have so far cost taxpayers more than $21 million, according to a report by CNN. At this rate, — the comparatively measly sum of $97 million.
Although Trump is expected to temporarily halt his Mar-a-Lago visits with the onset of summer in May, it is likely that he will then switch to regularly visiting Trump Tower in New York City and the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
In addition, despite regularly tweeting prior to becoming president that President Barack Obama spent too much time playing golf, Trump has been frequently spotted on the links during the six weekends he has spent at Mar-a-Lago. He has spent 17 days at a golf course during the first 12 weeks of his presidency, according to a report by The New York Times.” http://www.salon.com/2017/04/12/president-trumps-vacations-already-set-to-surpass-obamas-total-travel-expenses/
