The View Trump Trips


Donald Trump was slammed on “The View” on Tuesday for taking trips while calling for funding cuts. Watch below.

As Gossip Cop has reported, Trump wants to cut funding for the arts and eliminate funding for Meals on Wheels, among many other programs and agencies. At a press briefing on Monday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer defended Trump taking multiple golfing excursions, despite criticism over the president’s trips to Mar-A-Lago. All of these trips are paid for through tax payer money.

Now on the ABC talk show, Whoopi Goldberg marveled over all the trips Trump has taken when he’s only been in office for “25 minutes.” It’s actually been two months, but her point was clear. Sunny Hostin also stressed that in Trump’s first month alone, his trips cost $16 million, while the yearly cost when Obama was president was only $12 million total.

The panel was all enraged that Trump is causing this public expense while proposing significant budget cuts. “He’s a phony. This is how you spot a fake fiscal conservative,” Jedediah Bia declared. She went on to say, “I see these numbers, and I don’t care who’s president. I don’t want tax payers paying for this kind of nonsense.”

But the situation gave Goldberg an idea. “They always call it the Winter White House. That means it’s the People’s House,” she said. She then argued, “People should be able to walk through Mar-A-Lago if it is in fact a Winter White House. And what they charge to go through that Winter White House could offset what Palm Beach is paying, what we’re paying here.”

It was also mentioned out that tax payers are funding Melania Trump’s security in New York, as well as security when Trump’s kids travel .”Why should the single mother in Detroit have to pay for Hans and Fritz’s vacation?” Joy Behar complained. She went on to say to Trump supporters, “You can see that you guys are not getting anything out of this.”

Bila further pointed out that these budget cuts would come off differently if Trump set an example by cutting his own costs. “This is what he’s about for you but not for himself, which deeply, deeply bothers me,” she said. Check out the video below. NOTE: The video is no longer available.
