After the news yesterday that Donald Trump has already spent $102 million on golf outings as President — an amount that represents 255 times the presidential salary he promised to forego — it almost seems like overkill to report on even more of the President’s grifting.
Unfortunately, the passage of time doesn’t stop or even slow down, and neither does the fury and efficiency of the Trump family’s ability to bilk US taxpayers out of not just an average of more than $3,000 extra owed in taxes this year after the GOP’s “tax cuts,” but even more of the money Americans might otherwise be spending solving hunger, making higher education free, or providing healthcare to everyone.
Up next for the Trump clan? A trip spawned from the invitation of Donald and Melania by Queen Elizabeth that has blossomed into a family affair.
Not only do the people of England not want President Trump in their country, but many Americans are embarrassed to send him abroad in the first place. So what does Donald do? He decides to bring all of his children along for the vacation, all paid for by you.
Ivanka and her husband Jared, Eric and his wife Lara, Don Junior, and Tiffany Trump — all of the President’s adult children — will all be accompanying the President and the First Lady on the trip. That’s more than unusual: No prior President has done anything like this with adult children.
Prior to the ABC report that detailed the trip, CNN’s Kate Bennett had tweeted what was inside information:
The adult children of @realDonaldTrump will join the UK trip next month, a WH official tells CNN. No word if spouses or significant others are included. (Tiffany Trump this week attended film fest-related parties in Cannes w her boyfriend.)

The trip begins in a little more than a week and will last 3 days. I wonder if Trump will have time to golf while he’s there, or just enough time to refuse the English cuisine and demand McDonald’s.
