(Tea Party 247) – We may be in the midst of a national crisis, but the truth does not wait.
There is still a man running for president who used the office of Vice President when he served in the White House to accumulate wealth for himself and secure lucrative favors for his offspring.
And he also ensured they were protected by the Secret Service while they were overseas earning millions.
Of course, we are talking about former Vice President Joe Biden and his notorious deadbeat son, Hunter Biden.
The Gateway Pundit is reporting that Hunter Biden’s overseas travel cost the American taxpayers more than the Secret Service details of all of President Donald Trump’s children combined.
Let that sink in.
According to a report from the Washington Free Beacon, the taxpayers were forced to shell out $193,696 for the younger Biden’s Secret Service detail.
This is four times the recorded security bill to protect the four adult children of President Donald Trump.
You’ll forgive the repetition for the incredulity of this informational tidbit.
“While his father Joe Biden was vice president, Hunter Biden traveled with a Secret Service entourage to at least 10 different countries, including China, Qatar, and South Africa, according to a government expenditure database. He racked up 28 separate bills, all of which involved taxpayer payments to a ‘miscellaneous foreign contractor’ or ‘miscellaneous foreign awardee,’” the Free Beacon explains. “Many of the bills explicitly said that the money was used to pay for accommodations for the Secret Service, but others were scant on details.”
In fact, there isn’t another presidential family member disclosed in the database that even comes close to raking up the costs of Biden’s travel.
Next on the list is Malia Obama, the daughter of former President Barack Obama, who cost the taxpayers $41,023.
Meanwhile, all of the adult Trump children combined are recorded to have cost roughly $40,000.
The database is not a complete look at presidential family spending, however, as the Secret Service withholds a large amount of information for security reasons.
“This is not the first time the Biden family has used the Secret Service for its personal benefit. While in the White House, Joe Biden charged rent for the Secret Service agents stationed in his Wilmington, Del., property, costing taxpayers $171,600 between 2011 and 2017. Biden’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment,” the Free Beacon report adds.
