The Obama family has reportedly spent more than $10 million on vacation for every year of his presidency.
According to Judicial Watch, the Obama family, who will be moving out of the White House on January 20, have spent a total $85 million on travel during Barack Obama’s presidency.
The conservative website learned that the Obama family’s vacation to Hawaii for Christmas 2015 cost about $5 million in taxpayer money. The exact number is $4,823,206.88.The high price for the vacation is made up of costs for flights, transportation, Secret Service car rentals and lodging.
“The Secret Service and the Air Force are being abused by unnecessary travel,” said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch. “Unnecessary presidential travel for fundraising and luxury vacations on the taxpayers’ dime would be a good target for reform for the incoming Trump administration.”
According to The Blaze, Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the receipt of the vacation costs. The site filed a lawsuit on May 6 and the documents were released in response.
