Today President Obama is heading to Charlotte, North Carolina, to campaign for Hillary Clinton and guess who is going to pay for it?
When Hillary and President Obama boarded Air Force One today to fly to Charlotte for a joint campaign event for Hillary, the American taxpayer got the bill.
Donald Trump was quick to criticize the trip.
Taxpayers are paying a fortune for the use of Air Force One on the campaign trail by President Obama and Crooked Hillary. A total disgrace!

Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group discovered that a trip on Air Force One costs the American taxpayers about $200,000 per hour to fly each way.
The trip is going to be about two hours, plus the costs of all the Secret Service members and the transportation to and from the event.
So all in all, the trip should cost close to a million dollars for Obama to campaign for a woman who was just interviewed by the FBI for criminal wrongdoing. The worst part is, we are paying for it.
Under a law that was put into place in 2009, the Clinton campaign or the DNC is obligated to pay for part of the trip. How do they get the number to reimburse taxpayers? The White House creates a formula at their discretion, so who knows?
Do you think the President should campaign for a candidate and use taxpayer money? Let us know in the comments below.
