Q: How come Trump's cost per trip is $1.4 million, as opposed to obama's $380,000?

A: Most of Obama's golf trips were at golf courses located close to where he was staying, courses that were on military bases or government property. Trump has been taking Air Force One across the country, to golf.

Q:Is it really costing taxpayers money if he refused the presidential salary and only golfs on courses he owns?

A:The presidential salary is only $400,000, and there is no evidence he actually turned it down. The cost to golf isn't the course cost, it's the cost of flying Air Force One, security and transporting them.
