Obama Kenya trip cost

President Obama loves to spend taxpayer money like no other president in history. With the largest, most expensive plane of any head of state in the world, Obama's Air Force One costs over $200,000 an hour to operate, and that doesn't even include support aircraft and military protection and escort along the way.

Besides the nearly $6 million in just flight time alone, only for the cost of flying Air Force One, Obama's entire 5 day long trip to Africa will cost into the tens of millions of dollars. When you add everything up this president needs to get around the world to do supposedly important business, it is an absolute outrage that he expects the rest of us to pay taxes so he have such a lavish lifestyle, especially when he rails against the rich and their lavish pay and lifestyle on a constant basis.

I hope Obama and his entourage enjoyed their multi-million dollar jaunt to Africa, all on the back of taxpayers. Too bad Kenya wasn't able to keep the Traitor in Chief there.

President Obama’s five-day trip to Africa cost taxpayers more than $5 million in flight time alone for Air Force One, according to a study released Tuesday.

The National Taxpayers Union said Mr. Obama is spending about 29 hours of flight time on the trip that began Thursday, taking him to Kenya and Ethiopia. Operating Air Force One costs $206,337 per flight hour, for a total of $5,983,773.

The total cost of the trip will easily reach into tens of millions of dollars. In the summer of 2013, Mr. Obama took his family on a weeklong trip to sub-Saharan Africa that was estimated to cost taxpayers between $60 million and $100 million.
