Vacation Days: Trump Vs. Other Presidents
Bet you can’t guess who’s took more vacation days in their first year as President, Donald Trump or Barack Obama? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Brought to you by An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power http://inconvenientsequel.com/action
“President Donald Trump was a frequent Twitter critic of former President Barack Obama for his vacation days and golf outings, but to date, Trump has outpaced the former president on both those fronts.
Before entering the White House, Trump was a frequent critic of Obama’s personal time outside the Oval Office. Trump even criticized taking vacations at all.
“Don’t take vacations. What’s the point? If you’re not enjoying your work, you’re in the wrong job,” tweeted Trump in 2012.
Trump has apparently changed his position on the matter, as the president is set to take a 17-day vacation starting Friday. The president will head to his private golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey for what his aides are calling a “working vacation.” While he’s gone, the White House will receive maintenance on the heating and cooling system. Everyone, including staff, will be required to vacate the building during that time.”*
