Trump spent approximately $560,000 PER HOUR to mobilize tanks, fighter jets, and Air Force One to celebrate himself on July 4th in D.C.
It was easy to see that it was a massively expensive vanity project, but there might have been a more calculated partisan purpose: to reward his party’s biggest donors.
Reporters discovered the Republican Party National Committee was given tickets to a special VIP access area — and it turns out only VIPs with those tickets could see the tanks Trump was so desperate to have in D.C.
It’s pretty clear Trump spent untold millions to mobilize the military and dole out perks to his political backers — at taxpayers’ expense. And that could be a huge violation of the Hatch Act that bars taxpayers from paying for a partisan event.
