If you haven’t heard yet, President Obama is planning a big trip to Africa. The estimated cost of this trip is $100 million for a weeklong adventure to 3 different countries. After this news came out, many started to question the importance of the trip and the steep price tag. Well finally today, Rep. George Holding from North Carolina stepped forward to speak out against the President’s extravagant trip.
Holding said on the House floor,
“For the cost of this trip to Africa, you could have 1,350 weeks of White House tours, which the White House has canceled indefinitely due to budget constraints.”
