A recent letter suggested that we should do the math on the cost of President Trump’s golf games (“How much do we pay for Trump’s golf days?” Letters, Aug. 1).

I would suggest that we do the same on Obama’s trips to Hawaii with half of Washington at Christmastime to avoid the Christian holidays. And don’t forget the many trips to Martha’s Vineyard.

In addition, “do the math” on how to achieve a multimillion-dollar fortune on an annual salary of $400,000. Trump donates his salary to charity.

Incidentally, Obama also played golf while president; the exact number of times is unknown.

President Trump has the Democrats spinning in the wind, but unfortunately he has only six more years to clean up the mess left by LBJ, Carter, Clinton and Obama.
