Rep. Dan Kildee (D-Mich.) on Thursday wrote to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to request a breakdown of the money the State Department spent preparing for President Trumps canceled trip to Denmark.
Trump had originally planned to visit the nation in early September, with the visit including the first Danish state dinner attended by a U.S. president since the Clinton administration. However, after Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen publicly rebuffed Trumps reported interest in the U.S. purchasing Greenland, Trump announced the visit would be canceled.
In his letter, Kildee, a member of both the House Budget Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee, asked Pompeo for details on the money spent so far in advance of the visit.
Knowing the extensive background work that goes into planning any presidential travel, especially overseas, this action by the President raises important fiscal questions for Congress, the letter states.
After all Clinton(BJ) delivered a balanced budget.
These congresslosers are concerned about spending. $24,000,000,000,000.00 in debt and these idiots are “concerned”? Spare me. What about the billions in taxpayers’ money given to baltimore/lewis last year that essentially “disappeared”? Are these nitwits concerned about that?
Less than one Iranian pallet of untraceable cash
The Democrats are leaving no stone unturned in their harassment of President Trump. I wonder if the Congressman was so fiscally concerned when the Obama Family was taking all those expensive vacations on the public dime.
the price is less than if he had taken the trip so in the end its a savings...
And I wonder if any Democrat Congressman questioned the Obamas taking separate transportation to the same place.
This is what happens if you don’t play ball with the Pres.
Tell those belly-aching whiners the President took it out of the same fund that financed Mooselles many extravagant trips abroad with hundreds of hangers-on. That fund never ran short of cash.
Worth less than Clinton’s Lolita express..
Pocket change compared to a month of the wookie and her wretched offspring.
Bet never a word about the billion dollar boondoggles that Big Mike Obama made with his posse and Mama Robinson during 8 years.
a breakdown of the money the State Department spent preparing for President Trumps canceled trip to Denmark.
less than 25 of what CONGRESS paid out to Sexual Harassment Victims by Members of Congress using the Congressional Secret Rape Fund they created.
“House Democrat presses Pompeo over price of Trump’s scrapped Denmark trip.”
Because the House Dim never had anything better to do. The only thing they do related to their real job is to go and vote on a bill in accord with how their staff (the real levers behind the Congress critters) tell them to vote. They don’t author any bill. That is done by the Leftists among professional congressional staffs, on a Congress critters own staff and across the rest of Congress. They don’t read any bill before they vote - they couldn’t understand the legal language if they tried. Their entire Dim job of “representing” their constinuency is public relations - selling the Dims line of march to the press - that’s it and that’s all.
Kildee is the spawn of Dale Kildee, who was one of the most useless members of Congress. "D" and part of the Flint union machine.
But they didn’t want us to know about that hush-fund that congress could dip into to buy silence.
First, lets inquire about how much Tlaib and Oman cost taxpayers when they blew off the ME trip with congressional Democrats and traveled there separately last week.
Look into Michelles extravaganza with her mother first douchebag
