According to CNN, Donald Trump's travel to his private club in Florida has cost over an estimated $20 million in his first 80 days of presidency. If this continues, Trump is on pace in his first year of office to spend more on travel than former President Barack Obama's in his entire eight years.

To date, Trump has spent six weekends -- and a total of 21 days -- at Mar-A-Lago, his private Palm Beach club. The total estimated costs for those trips are around $21.6 million.
