Trump’s Cabinet Continues To Waste Taxpayer Dollars
March 21, 2018
It just keeps getting worse for American taxpayers. Trump’s Cabinet members continue to waste taxpayers’ hard-earned money for their own personal gain. Instead of taking responsibility and stopping this abuse, we only hear excuses.
Scott Pruitt has wasted more than one hundred thousand taxpayer dollars on first class airfare during his first year in office.
The Daily Beast: “Environmental Protection Agency administration Scott Pruitt spent about $105,000 on first class airfare since assuming the post, records obtained by The Daily Beast show.”
Washington Post: “The Environmental Protection Agency turned over documents to Congress late Tuesday detailing nearly $68,000 in newly disclosed travel costs for Administrator Scott Pruitt during the past seven months.”
Ben Carson blamed his wife, who does not work in the administration or have the authority to make spending decisions, for his waste of taxpayer dollars.
Washington Post: “Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson said Tuesday that the purchase of a $31,000 dining set for his office was made for safety reasons and after consultation with his wife, Candy Carson.”
