President Donald Trump has no problem whatsoever when it comes to exorbitant
expenditures paid for by the American people—even if he used to troll former
president Barack Obama for the very same.

The president seems to have no issue with a $24 million upgrade to Air Force
One, the jet Trump uses to go to Mar-a-Lago and golf nearly every weekend. The
presidential plane is primed to receive new refrigerators—cause you know Trump
has to have somewhere to store his Big Macs and KFC original recipe chicken
thighs.

CNN reports that the U.S. Air Force awarded Boeing a $23.6 million contract in
December to replace two of the five “cold chiller units” aboard the aircraft.

The fridges hadn’t been updated since 1990, and because it’s Air Force One, many
of its components require unique testing by the Federal Aviation Administration,
which obviously drives up the price.

When he was running for president, Trump boasted he would swap out Air Force One
with his private jet because the entire Air Force One program’s “costs were out
of control.”

In fact, Obama reportedly had to scrap plans to upgrade his helicopter fleet in
2009, after those costs were made public.

At least one person in the Obama administration clapped back on the fact that
ole hypocrisy personified seemed to have no problem with Air Force One these
days.

Former senior adviser to President Obama Eric Schultz said if his boss would
have even attempted that crap, “we would have been impeached.”

But in Trump’s world, the rules don’t apply to him.

Perhaps that impeachment thing will though . . .

Trump is nothing if not a hypocrite.

This is a great example of very leftward leaning media that intentionally leaves out information to create the "story" that they want.

Here are some facts:
-These are NOT "Refrigerators". They are very large, cooled, systems for storing and tracking enough meals to feed the entire emergency response team for up to three weeks.

-They are not for Trump's personal use, nor did he request this. The old system was failing, and no longer able to meet requirements. The choice was to either replace them, or stop using Air Force one. The military requires that these systems maintain very high reliability in order to maintain command authority in the event of a crisis.

-Trump HAS, however, rejected multiple Air Force One upgrades on the basis of price. All of them were approved by Obama, and then cancelled by Trump, and they add up to a whole lot more than $24M.

So, really, there is no story here, but a great example of an extreme effort to create an anti-Trump story where one does not exist.

Don't worry El Presidente's upcoming military parade will cancel out any
savings on Air Force One.

We won't even go into the weekly excursions to Mar-a-Lago.

It Cost New York City $24 Million to Secure Trump Tower From Election to
Inauguration

http://fortune.com/2017/02/22/trump-tower-security-costs-taxpayer/

It cost New York City about $24 million to provide security at Trump Tower,
President Donald Trump’s skyscraper home in Manhattan, from Election Day to
Inauguration Day, or $308,000 per day, New York’s police commissioner said on
Wednesday.

The revelation prompted renewed calls for Congress to reimburse the city for the
cost of protecting Trump’s private residence on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue, where
his wife and their son continue to reside.
