Letter: Are taxpayers subsidizing Trump’s campaign excursions?

November 7, 2018

With Donald Trump traveling all over the country to support Republican candidates, it is understood that the campaign pays for the venue at which these rallies are held.

However, it is highly likely that taxpayers are stuck with the tab for the president’s travel expenses, secret service escorts, etc., on these politically motivated excursions.

If true, then taxpayers, which include Democrats, Independents, etc., are helping to finance efforts to defeat their own candidates.
