President Donald Trump is constructing a helicopter landing pad on the grounds of Mar-a-Lago.
The president is building the landing spot at his private club so that he can fly there directly on Marine One from the nearby airport in Palm Beach instead of landing at the airport and traveling there by motorcade, according toPage Six.
The logistical hassle of getting Trump to Mar-a-Lago appears to be the motivation behind the Marine One helipad.
Until now, Trump has flown Air Force One to Palm Beach International Airport and then taken his presidential motorcade.
The president's limo and Marine One, whose fleet numbers around 35 helicopters, are transported to wherever the president is traveling by Air Force military transport carriers like the C-17 Globemaster III or the C-5 Galaxy.
At Mar-a-Lago, construction posts are now seen at the site, where a 50-foot-wide dirt pit has been dug up on the west lawn.
Okay first off why is Trump constantly going to Mar-A-Lago in the first place?
And secondly why do WE have to pay for a helipad to make it easier for him?
Add this cost to the millions taxpayers are already spending to allow his family to safely live in New York, and the security required while Trump hobnobs with his guests at Mar-A-Lago and this extravagance is now becoming obscene.
