FRIDAY 3/31/2017 CALL TO ACTIVISM FOR DEMOCRACY!
IF TRUMP WANTS TO GO TO MAR-A-LAGO, HE SHOULD PAY FOR IT.
Why is Trump hosting China'S president at HIS PERSONAL PROPERTY AT OUR EXPENSE?
(NY Times) "HONG KONG — President Xi Jinping of China will visit President Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida next week, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said Thursday, confirming details of the two leaders’ first summit meeting."
This naturally begs the question: Why can't President Trump host heads of state at the White House? And why should we be forced to pay for this?
"According to a recent investigation by the Washington Post, President Trump’s first three trips to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach have cost the federal treasury -- American taxpayers -- as much as $10 million within just the first month of his presidency. By the end of his term, that number could total hundreds of millions of dollars." (Entrepreneur)

Hello, my name is (YOUR NAME) and I am calling to express my concerns with the White House's recent decision to host the Chinese president at Mar-A-Lago.
President Trump has cost tax payers millions of dollars with his trips to his Florida property.
They call the White House the People's House for a reason. We should not have to fit the bill for lavish trips when a crucial symbol for our country is a perfectly good alternative.
If Donald Trump continues to insist to travel to Mar-A-Lago, he should pay for it.
