Trump Asks: ‘Who Pays’ For Obama to Fly to Clinton Events?

Donald Trump is accusing President Obama of improperly using his government-funded airplane to travel to rallies for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, according to The Hill.

“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!” Trump tweeted Monday night, the day before Clinton flew with the president to North Carolina for a joint appearance. In a second message on Twitter, the Republican White House hopeful asked: “Why is President Obama allowed to use Air Force One on the campaign trail with crooked Hillary? She is flying with him tomorrow. Who pays?”

An administration spokesman defended the commander in chief’s use of Air Force One to attend political events, telling Time magazine that he is abiding by “all rules and regulations to ensure that the (Democratic National Committee) or other relevant political committee pays what is required for the president to travel to political events.”

The Hill reported that the rally in Charlotte, N.C., was the first time that Obama and Clinton had appeared on stage together during this year’s campaign. Trump also was in the state Tuesday, speaking to his supporters in Raleigh.
