Trump took to twitter earlier today to let everybody know he would not be spending his time in New York this weekend.
Rather than causing a big disruption in N.Y.C., I will be working out of my home in Bedminster, N.J. this weekend. Also saves country money!

Now, finically speaking he is right with this tweet. It cost around $300,000 dollars to protect Trump at Trump Tower when he is present. When Trump is not there it costs anywhere between $127,000-$146,000.
With that being said this is one of those times that makes you question Trump’s twitter usage. I have been a defender of his twitter do to the fact it allows him to speak directly to his base. In this case, it is just a lot of nonsense.
I defend Trump’s golfing and his trips to Mar-largo because he uses it as a political tool. What I can’t defend is his trips to New Jersey.
Trump, you attacked Obama for leaving The White House please do not boast about you doing the same thing.
