Drumpf campaign cuts travel on Air Force One due to spending crisis

The Trump campaign has cut travel on Air Force One for its staff as it copes with a spending crisis

The Trump campaign has stopped flying almost all of its staff on Air Force One with the president as it tries to salvage an operation beset by wild spending, advisers to the reelection effort told Insider.

Too many campaign staffers were catching rides on Air Force One, an expensive flight compared to flying commercial, one Trump adviser said. The campaign has to reimburse the government for each of its employees who ride on the presidential jet. The bills can add up quickly with frequent travel to rallies.

Insider reported in July that the Trump campaign had launched an internal review of its spending under Parscale who became known for his extravagance. He drew the ire of Trump and the president’s supporters earlier this year after making flashy purchases of a waterfront condo in Florida, a new boat, a Ferrari, and a Range Rover.

“They’ve tried to cut back on the margins,” the Trump adviser said of the campaign. “They’ve spent a lot of money; the burn rate is enormous.”

3. Ha! They're going to Romney so many staffers!

Remember when Romney staff got abandoned with their credit cards shut down, in random places, when he lost his race for President?

That will be small potatoes to the Trump staff that’s going to get abandoned—maybe even before he loses! Suckers!!!

4. I saw another article that a super PAC was going to give 25 mil to his campaign.

Same article said it takes 20 mil a week to run his campaign..so cancel that...it’s just too perfect! The asshole who all his life has burned thru money and walked away suddenly can’t!!

6. I place a bet that his money drain is because he has to pay crowds to hold up signs and stuff

It must be really draining to give Donald Trump a crowd he wants all the time.

11. Someone posted the cost per hour

to fly AF 1,5k for fuel alone,plus landing charges in the 5k range. Plus at least one AF Cargo jet at about the same per hour fuel burn rate and Landing fees. And as we are finding out,zero funds are coming from the Trump Campaign,you and I as Taxpayers are now paying for Trump 2020 campaign.
