Trump: ‘Who Pays’ for Obama’s Appearance with Clinton?
Donald Trump questioned on Monday who was paying for President Barack Obama’s trip to North Carolina to help Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail.
“Who pays?” Trump asked late Monday on Twitter, noting that Clinton will fly with Obama.
Why is President Obama allowed to use Air Force One on the campaign trail with Crooked Hillary? She is flying with him tomorrow. Who pays?

The Hill reports:
A White House official told a Time magazine reporter that the Obama administration, like previous administrations, follows “all rules and regulations to ensure that the [Democratic National Committee] or other relevant political committee pays what is required for the President to travel to political events.”

Clinton and Obama will appear together for the first time on the campaign trail in Charlotte, N.C. Trump also has an appearance set in North Carolina on Tuesday, in Raleigh.
Trump on Tuesday called the use of Air Force One a “total disgrace.”
Taxpayers are paying a fortune for the use of Air Force One on the campaign trail by President Obama and Crooked Hillary. A total disgrace!
