Trump, though he has only been in office for nine months, is so far on track to come out ahead of the Obama administration's expense record. He, too, has had his fair share of trip splurges.
To celebrate his 100th day in office, Trump flew to a rally in Pennsylvania, costing $156,618. Days later, he went to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, which came out to $224,765.80. In June, he flew again to Bedminster, racking up a $199,332 bill. He also spent over $1.1 million visiting the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
