United Nations General Assembly Events Cost U.S. Taxpayers Millions
President Trump U.S. Shells Out $2.5 Mil for U.N. Events … Last Laugh’s on U.S.
The United States paid millions to host the United Nations’ General Assembly this year … ironic since President Trump became the butt of the meeting’s biggest joke.
We obtained federal docs outlining costs associated with the Lotte Hotel in NYC — where a number of U.S. funded events went down — and the total cost approaches $2.5 MILLION.
The breakdown includes hotel rooms and related expenses, venue spaces and related costs, such as furniture, food and beverages.
The Lotte was host to a reception by Melania, and President Trump held meetings there with South Korean President Moon Jae-In, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe.
As we reported … the assembly burst into laughter when Trump quipped, “In less than 2 years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.”
The U.N. Headquarters — located about a mile away from The Lotte — also had expenses covered by the U.S. … notably $54,000 for outdoor tents.
The $2.5 mil figure doesn’t cover Secret Service costs … that’s another $1 million JUST
