“Remember Trump’s criticism of Obama golfing? The cost of Trump’s golfing is now $108M,” Waters tweeted, though she did not cite a report behind the dollar figure.
HuffPost reported Friday that Trump’s golf outings during his tenure in the White House have cost taxpayers more than $108 million, largely due to travel and security costs.
“Big spender Trump, disregarding the national debt only adds to his dishonesty. Trump should have been impeached a long time ago.”

Waters has long been a proponent of impeaching Trump, a divisive topic within the Democratic House caucus. Waters at one point urged Trump to resign so the country could avoid a lengthy impeachment proceeding.
Trump spent the July 4th weekend in New Jersey and reportedly played a few rounds of golf at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster.
Trump’s three-day weekend reportedly cost taxpayers at least $1 million, according to HuffPost.
Since taking office, Trump now mainly golfs at golf clubs bearing his name, spending dozens of days at his clubs in New Jersey, Virginia and Florida.
