If you’ve been watching the news, you’d think the world was ending over President Trump’s 17-day vacation.
We’re here to set the record straight with the facts.
Will you please help us spread the truth by SHARING this article?
Here’s the deal. President Trump is leaving the White House today for his club in New Jersey. Trump has said this will be a “working vacation” and not necessarily a sit on the beach, drink margaritas, vacation.
Yet everyone is losing their minds over the idea that our President would dare leave the White House at all. To be fair, some of this comes as reaction to Trump’s campaign promises to work hard and not take vacations, and his criticism of Barack Obama for doing the opposite. It also comes on the heels of Trump criticizing Congress for taking an August Recess.
But here is the truth. First of all, the White House is undergoing renovations to fix it’s HVAC system. During the repair work, the White House will have no air conditioning. In the hottest month of the year, with temps over 100 degrees. I’d leave too, wouldn’t you?
Here it is, right from NPR:
The White House insists this will be a working vacation; the presidential getaway is necessitated, in fact, by plans to rehabilitate the West Wing’s heating and air conditioning this month. “The president is going to continue to work,” deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters told reporters aboard Air Force One on Thursday night. “The staff and the president are moving out, because I don’t think any of you would like to be in the West Wing in an August D.C. summer day when it’s over 100 degrees with no air conditioning,” Walters said.
On top of that, President Trump will continue actively working. You don’t need to physically be in the White House to get work done.
I used to have a boss who would take a vacation about once every three months. Italy, Florida, Turks & Caicos….you name it, he went there. But the funny thing was, he got more work done on those trips than most of us back in the office! Between faxes and emails and FedEx packages going back and forth from our office to his hotel, the man was a machine. And vacations seemed to recharge his batteries to boot. I suspect Trump is the same way. He’ll probably do more good for America over the next 17 days that Barack did in his entire first term.
So the next time some Lib tries to cry about Trump’s vacation, give them the TRUTH. Share this article with them.
Go Trump! Keep up the great work, we’ve got your back!
