The High Life! Obama’s Visit to India, Stay at Taj Mahal Hotel, to Cost US Taxpayers $200 MILLION PER DAY; President is Taking 3,000 People With Him

The US would be spending a whopping $200 million per day on President Barack Obama’s visit to the city.

 

“The huge amount of around $200 million would be spent on security, stay and other aspects of the Presidential visit,” a top official of the Maharashtra Government privy to the arrangements for the high-profile visit said.

 

About 3,000 people including Secret Service agents, US government officials and journalists would accompany the President. Several officials from the White House and US security agencies are already here for the past one week with helicopters, a ship and high-end security instruments.

 

“Except for personnel providing immediate security to the President, the US officials may not be allowed to carry weapons. The state police is competent to take care of the security measures and they would be piloting the Presidential convoy,” the official said on condition of anonymity.
