Trump’s New $24 Million Fridge Will Cost Taxpayers Enough to Feed Every Homeless Person in DC for a YEAR

By Matt Agorist

Washington, DC — When Donald Trump was seeking the office of President, he frequently criticized the taxpayer dollars wasted on Air Force One. Trump even called for the canceling of the Boeing contract to construct a new fleet. However, like most of his promises made on the campaign trail, his since changed his mind.

Illustrating the insane nature of the US government’s bloat and excess, the taxpayers will be robbed of a whopping $24,000,000.00—to install a new refrigerator in Air Force One—seriously.

Boeing was awarded a $23,657,671.00 contract to design, test, and install two VC-25A G12/G13 chillers for the customized 747 jumbo jet in December.

“The Air Force requires that the current air chillers in the G12 and G13 galleys be modified with new cold food stowage to improve reliability and maintainability,” a contract notice from the Pentagon states.

Because the president is so important, he needs the ridiculously priced multi-million dollar refrigerator to store massive amounts of food—just in case one of the wars he is provoking forces him to stay onboard Air Force One for an extended period of time.

“Although serviced on a regular basis, reliability has decreased with failures increasing, especially in hot/humid environments,” Air Force spokesman Ann Stefanek told Defense One. “The units are unable to effectively support mission requirements for food storage.”

Naturally, the Defense Department is conducting damage control claiming that the $24 million fridge will save lives and claims that no one is getting rich off the deal.

“It’s not a contractor issue, it is a requirements issue,” said Richard Aboulafia, vice president of analysis at the Teal Group consulting firm. “It’s not getting people rich.”

To put this amount of money into perspective, however, let’s look at the homeless population in Washington D.C. Current estimates put D.C.’s homeless population among the highest in the nation. The most recent data suggests there are roughly 11,600 homeless people inside the D.C. city limits alone.

If the $24 million would be given to city’s homeless population it would feed every one of them for an entire year. The cost of a year’s supply of storable, non-perishable food is roughly $1,800.

Obviously, government spending doesn’t work like that; however, this is merely a simple comparison to highlight not only the hypocrisy of Trump’s flip-flop but the sheer gluttonous waste of the federal government.

Last week, the conservative watchdog organization, Judicial Watch, released the total dollar amount of Trump’s family travel expenses so far. Added to the previously released costs, the known travel costs for President Trump’s political and leisure travel is now $13,533,937.28, according to the group.

These numbers do not include the costs of security, Secret Service, or any of the other peripheral costs associated with the ridiculous task that is moving Donald Trump around the country.

“The president is accountable to the taxpayers – they spend our hard-earned dollars and that’s why Judicial Watch keeps track of certain travel costs,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Trump’s regular trips to his homes are adding up to a hefty sum.”

Laughably, Eric Shultz, a former White House deputy press secretary under former President Barack Obama, tweeted Friday “we would have been impeached” if the repairs were made under the previous administration.

However, as TFTP reported at the time, the Obama administration was just as gluttonous and just as corrupt.

Obama’s total travel costs during his reign as president cost the taxpayers a whopping $114 million. As we noted at the time, this was enough money to end homelessness in Washington D.C. for over a year.

  1. The fridge holds 3,000 meals – enough to feed trump and crew for week if there is a war. Sob story doesn’t work!!

    • Except that the people won’t have a say in the 23 million dollar refers anymore than they will have say on stopping a War.Trump is Mafia and the stupid American stil think that the Russian mafia is Russian – they are the Russian/ Jewish mafia with Israeli and USA passports and most of them fled to the US, Britain, France, Germany Switzerland under the open immigration laws forced on all those countries. Now you have the EU and US being forced to take in more immigrants from Africa and M E. This was your real history lesson today -1107 I see the administrator doesn’t like my post.

    • Let them eat cake!

  2. The $24 million is down from the $140 million Berry / Obama was quoted.

    24,000,000.00 for a frigidator?? Gotta be fake news.

  4. So where’s DJT’s negotiating skills? Sorry but two giant subzero units w. fridge & freezers big enough to hold that much food would only cost at most 50K . Somebody is FOS.

    • It’s a refit and upgrade of Comm. and Defense Capability New Aircraft that the Obama Administration Had Ordered would have Cost $4,000,000,000 Yes that is BILLION each I think Trump may have saved the taxpayers a couple of dollars. Don’t believe every thing you read in a Left wing News Blog.

    The words ‘glutenous’ and ‘corruption’ frame it perfectly. The whole lot of them are knee wiping, self serving, pompous assess. Without saying demented, insidious, despicable retches.

  6. $24million? Seriously? Where was the screaming and yelling when Hussein doubled the nation’s deficit in just 8 years?

    • Fox News was screaming and yelling

      • Yep, but no one cared since the mooslime prince could do no wrong.

          • Apparently this one does, unless those are beef ribs.

          • Wrong pork is not halal so he’s not a Muslim

          • No, he’s a bad mooslime. Big difference.

          • Nope he’s no Muslim that’s why he killed more Muslims than Bush did via drone strikes and started more wars for Israel and woulda invaded Syria in 2013 if it wasn’t for protests from his base and by the way the rebels (cia/mossad assets) in Syria were set up by Bush in 2006 and Syria was one of the 7 countries in the list to overthrow that Gen Wesley Clark spoke about and that list was made in 2001 by the Bush administration


            Hussein is certainly a phagg mooslime, but he goes for the money first. He’s a very obedient camel boy.

          • Had to repost this cus faketivist post won’t let me cuss but you either ignorant asf or a hasbara troll cus real Muslims ain’t gay cus Islam is against homosexuality so saying a Muslim is gay is like saying there’s black kkk members

          • Bill the eighth | January 30, 2018 at 3:44 pm |

            You don’t know much about the muslims and it shows. They are allowed to break all kinds of their own Sharia laws as long as it is in pursuit of killing / subordinating the infidel.

          • Says who that zionist agent Pamela Geller who wants to start shit between Christianity and Islam she and other islamophobes misquote the Quran and use a part of the Quran called the Hadiths that were added way after the original Quran was written why don’t you look up that and look up Albert Pikes vision of 3 world wars given to him by Satan himself that’s their plan and so far they been successful

  7. Anyone who actually believes this is as insane as the person who wrote it.

    • Well it is obvious that the writer of this article is stupid enough to believe what has been put out there. You should Know how much the Pigs love the Slop that left Feeds them.

  8. This sounds more like and smells more like a Communications and Defense capability up Grade. Than 2 refrig. for a Boeing VC-25 Military aircraft and their NOT GONNA TELL YOU what those upgrades are outright are they.
