A 2015 video of Donald Trump saying he’d never take a vacation as president has been making the rounds on social media. What he says in the video is of course in sharp contrast with what he’s done — vacationing every weekend at huge cost to the taxpayer.
In the video, Trump, appearing alongside New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is heard saying:
There’s no time for vacations. We’re not going to be big on vacations. The White House is like this incredible place, right? Represents so much, and you’re there for a limited period of time. If you’re at the White House, and you have so much work to do, why do you fly so — why do you leave so much? You know, you’d think you’d wanna work, work, work, straighten it out, get it done, fix it up, make it great, and then when you’re finished, you can be proud. But boy, are we a mess!
News networks would do well to blast this video 24/7.
