Four of President Donald Trump’s trips to his Florida home in 2017 cost taxpayers about $13.6 million, amounting to nearly $1 million a day, the U.S. government’s watchdog reported Tuesday.

The federal government’s costs for the four trips included $60,000 paid directly to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club, the Government Accountability Office said in a report released the day of the president’s annual State of the Union address.
