6. At this point I would think so

But hes been using AF1 for a while now. Well probably never get an accurate accounting of how he spent most of the campaign money but we will with govt aircraft. Their cash burn on using this plane alone has likely been enormous over the last 12-months since he started doing purely political rallies.

It costs about 200k an hour to operate. So theoretically a 2 hour one way flight to a rally could cost the campaign up to 400k. Im not sure exactly what percentage the campaign must reimburse the govt for the costs but it is significant and would add up quickly.
