Oh, and let's not forget to include the cost of cutting down all of the coconuts from trees underneath which Obama is scheduled to walk.
$200 Million a day sounds about right, doesn't it? Not according to the White House. They are debunking that figure. Only there's a slight problem. They refuse to tell the public how much the trip WILL cost.
Via Fox News:
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs dismissed reports by Press Trust of India that President Barack Obama's trip to Mumbai and Indonesia would cost the U.S. $200 million per day.How's that for transparency?
During Thursday's briefing, Gibbs stated that this report was "simply not true."
While Gibbs maintained that he would not go into the actual figure of what it costs to move the president from one country to another, he did state the costs are no more then what it took to travel former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W Bush.
