Trump’s trips are infuriating

We read recently about the Secret Service exceeding its budget for providing protection for Donald Trump’s extended family.

After watching his Aug. 22 trip to Arizona, which involved both Air Force One and Air Force Two, we have to ask, why are American taxpayers paying for his expenses on this trip. It was a campaign rally, not related in any way to anything of importance to our country. He spent most of the speech vilifying the media and our two elected senators, and attempting to justify his comments about Charlottesville.

If he needs campaign-type functions to feed his ego, then have the Republican National Committee or him pay for his expenses.

We have watched this man use Air Force One and Marine One for weekend jaunts to Florida and elsewhere. It is truly sickening. Are we doomed to four years of this madness? Is there nothing Congress can do to save us from this man?
