Secret Service has spent nearly $150k on golf cart rentals since Trump took office: report

The Secret Service has reportedly spent nearly $150,000 on golf cart rentals since President Trump took office.

According to federal purchase orders obtained and reported on by USA Today, the Secret Service has spent at least $144,975 on golf cart rentals alone since Trump took office.

Nearly $7,500 was spent on golf cart rentals during Trump’s Thanksgiving weekend at his private club Mar-a-Lago.

Trump spent five days on the golf course during his Thanksgiving weekend, including once when he said he was playing golf “quickly” with Tiger Woods.

Throughout his presidency, Trump has spent more than 100 days at Trump properties, and 81 days at golf properties in particular, according to an NBC tracker.

Spending in the Trump administration has been under scrutiny, especially for security-related costs for his frequent trips to Trump properties. As of October, the Secret Service had reportedly paid more than $63,000 to Mar-a-Lago.
