Remember President Obama’s recent Latin America trip where he got to do all kinds of cool stuff like do the wave with a communist dictator and ballroom dance with a playboy model while the rest of the world mourned over the terrorist attack in Belgium?
Well, not only was it a blast but apparently the Argentina portion cost taxpayers a nice chunk of change too.
From Free Beacon:
President Barack Obama’s two-day visit to Argentina, where he tangoed and downplayed the differences between capitalism and communism, cost taxpayers nearly $1.4 million.
Transportation costs for journalists traveling with the president as part of the White House Correspondents Association totaled $141,794.
Finally, a contract signed March 9 for “repair and maintenance for pool bathrooms” for the president’s visit to Argentina cost $50,218.
Pretty sweet trip!
Meanwhile, the country is almost $20 trillion in debt.
But that’s the next president’s problem now.
