However, when the first family travels so does staff, guests, and security.

Someone has to pay for those trips.

The final tally to the American taxpayer might just blow your mind.

From BizPac Review:

The total for Obama travel is $9,028,346.90 for this production of documents. Added to the previously released costs, the known total for travel expenses for the Obamas is now a staggering $114,691,322.17.

The total for President Trump’s travels in these documents is $2,821,367.34. Added to the previously released costs, the known travel costs are now $10,381,792.35.

We obtained the new Obama travel records from the Secret Service as the result of a May 2017 FOIA lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security (No. 1:17-cv-01007)). Our lawsuit produced the following travel records showing a total of $9,028,346.90 for Obama travel:

A pair of Obama family vacations the weekend of February 14, 2014, cost the Secret Service $272,192.91:

-Michelle Obama’s annual trip to Aspen with her daughters – where she shut down the airport for an hour – cost $6,970 in air/rail, $5,614.99 in car rentals and $76,078.30 in hotels for a total of $88,663.29

-President Obama’s annual golfing trip to Palm Springs included a meeting with Jordan’s King Abdullah II and cost $10,951 in air/rail, $10,166.79 in car rentals and $162,411.80 in hotels for a total of $183,529.62

Over $114 million in eight years? Pricey.

During a speech at the University of Illinois, Obama would not call Donald Trump ‘president.’

He referred to 45 as “Donald Trump,” as if he was still a private citizen.

From Gateway Pundit:

Barack Obama crawled out of his hole Friday and trashed President Trump–calling him out by name, then took credit for the booming economy.

[…]

Former President Obama: It did not start with Donald Trump. He is a symptom not a cause. He’s just capitalizing on resentments politicians have been fanning for years. A fear and anger that’s rooted in our past but it’s also born out of the enormous upheavals that have taken place in your brief lifetimes…

It’s President Trump whether people like it or not. Trump was duly elected by the citizens of the United States of America and has earned the title.

It’s no secret that Obama and Trump disagree on virtually everything, but it is the lack of respect from one president to another that gets people upset.

44 then attempted to take credit for the current state of the economy, which is thriving.

Trump, however, wasn’t about to let Obama’s jab go so easily. Ohhh, no.

45 unloaded both barrels on 44.

Check out Trump’s thoughts on Obama’s speech while in North Dakota:

“Sorry I watched it but I fell asleep. He’s found he’s very good, very good for sleeping. I think he was trying to take credit. He was trying to take credit for this incredible thing that’s happening for our country… I have to say this to President Obama, it wasn’t him, but it would have been the same thing. If the Democrats got in with their agenda almost two years ago, instead of having 4.2 up, I think honestly you’d have 4.2 down. You’d be negative. It’d be negative numbers.”
