Obama was criticized for taking too many golfing trips and family vacations during his two terms in office, but now all of those vacations the former president took are being shadowed by President Donald Trump’s loafing around on the links.
According to documents attained by Judicial Watch, Obama’s outings cost taxpayers some $97 million throughout his presidency.

In his first 80 days in office, President Trump’s trips to Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, have cost Americans an estimated $20 million.
