Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained Secret Service and Air Force records this week that reveal the expenses related to President Barack Obama‘s attendance at the 2015 Paris Climate Change Conference.
According to The Informed American, the records reveal that Secret Service charges and flights added up to $2,976,296.20. These figures don’t even include expenses for Secret Service meals, meeting rooms, or cabinet members’ travel and catering.
The November 30 to December 12, 2015, during which time Obama’s Secret Service spent $706,065 on hotels alone. The agents stayed in many hotels including the Hilton Astor, Marriott Ambassador, Marriott Rive Gauche, Mercure Tour Eiffel, and the InterContinental Paris Le Grand.
The 14.4 hours of flight time on Air Force One cost taxpayers $1,404,927.00. An additional $247,197.60 was spent on 15.6 hours on a C-32A jet. Obama also spent $531,598 in vehicle rentals and $652 for renting a copier.
In the seven years he took office, Obama has racked up $82 million in travel expenses, which has caused Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton to slam him for “wasteful and unnecessary presidential travel that abuses the taxpayers, the military, and the U.S. Secret Service.”
