New Infographics Compare Cost of Trump’s Weekend Florida Trips and After-School Snacks, Meals on Wheels

Washington, D.C. – Starting today, Bread for the World will regularly release infographics illustrating the human impact of President Trump’s proposed #skinnybudget for fiscal year 2018.

Although full budget details are still to come, there is enough top-line information to assess the impact of the #skinnybudget on mothers, children, the elderly, and other vulnerable people.

The first two infographics focus on taxpayers’ costs for President Trump’s weekend trips to his exclusive Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, since becoming president, and how that money could be used to help seniors receive meals and school children receive after-school snacks.

It costs taxpayers approximately $3.5 million every time Trump spends a weekend in Mar-a-Lago, according to news reports. Since he became president, this has reached $16.5 million which is enough to provide 114,583 poor children with after-school snacks for one year. It is also equivalent to feeding up to 6,000 seniors for a year in the Meals on Wheels program.
