Melania Trump Racked Up $174,000 In Hotel Bills For a Day Trip To Toronto

First Lady Melania Trump ran up a six-figure hotel bill for a one-day trip to Toronto last year, according to federal spending records.

Government spending data show at least six separate Toronto hotel charges ranging from just under $12,000 to nearly $49,000 for a total of roughly $174,000. She did not spend the night.

The total was roughly eight times what it cost to house the first lady’s advance team, whose $18,000 in hotel expenses were broken out separately; in addition to the hotel charges, the first lady’s trip involved $21,000 in transportation costs.

Reports from the press pool that accompanied Trump on her September 23, 2017, Canadian excursion showed that her schedule involved multiple hotel stops. Based on those reports, this was her itinerary for the day:

-why can't she just have one base of operations and change all her outfits there?

Or why not just change in the car like I hear regular voters do?

A more charitable person's mind would be thinking of kickbacks; my mind is going more to padding the bills and overstating expenses.

Stirring up the dirt
Always have clean shirts to play around in.
In their styes with all their backing
They don't care what goes on around
In their eyes there's something lacking
What they need's a damn good whacking.
Everywhere there's lots of piggies
Living piggy lives
You can see them out for dinner
With their piggy wives
Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon.

When a first lady spends that for a luxury travel junket to go shopping with OUR money , and while they robbed the American people of their health care. There needs to be accountability , and everything she spent on should be made public, period. Add to that her expenses for her trip to Africa too. All while the deficit under trump has sky rocketed upward to record levels now. They should be made to reimburse what they spent .

Several House of Representatives members have complained about the cost of living in the D.C area (it ain't cheap, I'll grant them that). I remember seeing a report or two about some of them complaining they can't live comfortably on $174,000 a year gross salary. OK, I want a statement from EVERY House Republican on how they justify the cost of a day trip to Toronto by Trump's wife being worth as much as they earn in a year. Any of them have an explanation?

I know, I might as well wait for the effects of gobal warming to be reversed in a weekend.

The article is written in an odd way to make it seem like these are all charges for accommodations instead of reception halls.

I doubt she met with the Invictus Games athletes and gave a speech in a hotel suite instead of a reception venue.

65. I doubt they book reception facilities by the minute


If someone is holding a media event in a reception hall with 100+ guests, I doubt the charge is based on the period of time spend there by the host, since it renders the hall unavailable for anything else for the entire day.

I’m not defending profligate spending, but the way the article is written - by reference to room rates instead of conference and reception facilities - is for simpleminded people.

It’s a tiresome trope that is used regardless of the administration - e.g. the nattering on the right about the expense of the Obama’s attending a broadway performance in New York during that administration.

Whenever any of these people goes anywhere, it’s like moving the Barnum & Bailey circus. But to pretend these were payments for bedrooms is just plain stupid.

68. That's a possibility, but the cited article

only lists a couple of events:

12:09 pm (Sept. 23): Arrives in Toronto. The first lady travels to a downtown Sheraton, meets with Britain’s prince Harry for 20 minutes, and then departs for the Ritz-Carlton.

4 pm: Returns to Sheraton. The first lady meets with U.S. athletes competing in the Invictus Games (an event for disabled veterans created in 2014 by prince Harry) for 20 minutes. She delivers a speech that was one minute, 15 seconds long.

6:35 pm: Arrives at Air Canada Centre. The first lady greets prime minister Justin Trudeau and his family and watches the opening ceremony of the games from a VIP suite.

12:12 am (Sept. 24): Returns to Andrews Air Force base in Maryland.


The reception for the athlete could take place in a hotel ballroom or other function space, but why is the US paying for her to go to a foreign country to meet the grandson of the titular head of that country? Or to host the prime minister of that country? Shouldn't they be hosting her? And what was she doing at the Ritz-Carlton?

I've done a little bit of event planning, and venue costs can get up there if you don't have a halfway decent negotiator handling the details. The multiple hotels seems to me that she's found some new way of grifting, or her staff sucks at planning.

Canada wasn’t paying for a reception for the 100+ US athletes, of which she was the leader of the delegation.

It would be more informative to get the details in the expense, but the “omg X spent Y on Z” trope is hardly a new one. It’s a time-honored trope.

Do you know who runs the US consulate in Toronto?

Trump was the symbolic head of the delegation. The US State Department, to whom questions are about the expenses are referred, held a reception for the 100+ athletes in the delegation of which Trump, as the head thereof, appeared and gave a speech. Yes, the US consulate in Toronto is a facility of the US state department.

57. I don't believe it

Oh, I believe $174K was involved. But I think a big chunk of it went directly into somebody's pocket.

77. The first escort and nude model of the US was busy stuffing our tax dollars

78. $95,000. For 4 Hours At A Cairo Hotel
