Furious Melania Trumps escape to Mar-a-Lago spa cost Taxpayers $64,000

Melania Trump R&R retreat to Mar-a-Lago, following revelations of her husband Donald Trump’s affair with porn star Stormy Daniels  reportedly cost taxpayers a pretty penny.

Instead of releasing a statement about the allegation against the president, Mrs. Trump, 47, retired to the spa at the first couple’s Florida resort estate on Friday, reportedly “furious” about how he allegedly paid off Daniels to keep quiet, according to the New York Times.

Described as “a tranquil haven offering an ideal relief from the every day” on its website, the members-only Trump Spa features pampering amenities such as pedicure rooms and makeup and hair stations that are all surrounded by marble.

According to PEOPLE,  every time the first lady flies from Joint Base Andrews to Palm Beach International Airport on a C-32A plane it costs taxpayers an estimated $16,168 per hour, according to the Department of Defense as reported by the Times. The first lady’s four-hour roundtrip flight to Mar-a-Lago totaled approximately $64,600.

That same week, it was revealed that the upgrade of Air Force One’s two refrigerators cost taxpayers $23.7 million, according to Fortune.

Her Mar-a-Lago escape comes on the heels of The Wall Street Journal‘s story that Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen arranged a $130,000 payment to Daniels shortly before the 2016 presidential election to bar her from talking about her alleged sexual encounter with Trump.
