Looks like Trump has reestablished his rallies with his fly in - fly out strategy.

I guess he gets to use Air Force One at our expense to do this, or does this get billed back to his campaign to just go unpaid so we still have to pay for it?

1. Good point. He'll get charged for this on January 20, 2021

and be sued if he doesn't pay it.

In any event, the beauty about his rallies is that the only people stupid enough to go to a rally during this pandemic are a lost cause anyway and would never vote for J/K. It actually makes no difference except for the extra TV time he gets.

Plus wasting all of our tax dollars.

2. Campaigns are supposed to pay for it, but you know Trump will find a way around it.

3. Yes, I understood that campaigns paid for use of AF1 for political events.

President Obama followed that in 2012, even as the right made unfounded claims.

My guess? Trump is again piling up a lot of bills that won’t get paid.

6. Drumpf campaign is going broke and is reducing Air Force One flights.

The Trump campaign has cut travel on Air Force One for its staff as it copes with a spending crisis

7. Thanks for the links, but unless I missed it, I didn't see anything about the flights being reduced.

Only campaign staff not being allowed to go on the AF1 flight with Trump and having to travel commercial instead. So it looks like the rally flights are all still on.
