Trump's Secret Service spent $137,505 to rent golf carts.. So far.

The Secret Service has spent at least $137,505 to rent golf carts to protect President Trump this year at his private clubs in New Jersey and Florida.

According to federal purchase orders flagged by the progressive PAC American Bridge and reviewed by USA TODAY, the agency paid $61,960 in a Sept. 29 contract to rent golf carts at the Trump International Golf Club in Florida.

That's the biggest purchase order for golf carts so far. It comes in a contract that will extend through May 28, 2018. The agency signed contracts for golf carts at Trump's clubs as early as February, but they never exceeded about $18,000 – and only lasted for one month at a time.

That's how a pro uses the federal government to funnel hundreds of thousands of public dollars into his own pockets.

Yeah, but it does not compare to the money we have spent on Mr. Trump
Cost of personal travel
Mr Trump has dwarfed the personal travel costs of Mr Obama. While it is difficult to determine exactly how much Mr Trump has spent on travel to his Mar-a-Lago, Florida, resort – there hasn’t been an official analysis of the costs – an analysis of a similar trip taken by Mr Obama to Florida during his presidency provides a close estimate.
The US Government Accountability Office analysed a 2013 trip Mr Obama took to Florida by way of Chicago and determined that the costs, including financing Air Force One and Coast Guard protection, came out to about $3.6m (£2.8m). That itinerary is fairly close to the costs Mr Trump’s frequent weekend trips would likely incur, bringing the estimated costs for private travel during his first 100 days to more than $21.6m.
Mr Obama, on the other hand, spent far less time outside of the White House on personal trips during his presidency. His total private trips cost during his two terms was $96.9m, according to an analysis by the conservative non-profit Judicial Watch. That figure, though, also includes several million dollars worth of travel expenses for official presidential trips, including an Earth Day trip to the Florida Everglades in 2015 when Mr Obama discussed climate change, and his historic 2016 trip to Cuba.
Number of days on private retreat from the White House
Mr Trump frequently takes trips to his Mar-a-Lago resort where he has been seen playing golf. Finishing off his first 100 days, he had spent at least 25 days away from the White House.
Mr Obama spent one weekend, or four days, away from the White House on a private retreat during that time.
Number of days spent playing golf
Mr Trump, as a private citizen, frequently criticised Mr Obama for the amount of time he spent golfing. But, during his first 100 days the President has golfed much more than his predecessor during that time. While the exact number is difficult to determine because most of the information comes from pictures of sightings posted online, Mr Trump has spent at least 19 days golfing. Mr Obama didn’t golf at all during that time and didn’t hit the links until four months into his presidency, according to an analysis by the New York Times.

Did Obama purchase the clubs and golf carts from his own golf courses, allowing him to line his own pockets with federal money?
