House Bill Would Reimburse Airports $3.5M For Lost Revenue Because Glorious Leader Is Golfing Nearby

Politico reports:

The House appears poised to use at least $3.5 million in federal money to reimburse airports in Florida and New Jersey for financial losses suffered when President Donald Trump stays at his resorts nearby.

The language, included in the House’s appropriations bill for transportation spending, appears to target at least three general aviation airports near Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., and Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Fla.

Those airports virtually close when Trump visits because they fall within a “no-fly zone,” said Jim Coon, senior vice president of government affairs and advocacy for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association.
