First lady Michelle Obama will travel to China this month with her daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother, Marian Robinson, her office announced today.
The March 19-26 trip will include a visit with her Chinese counterpart, Peng Liyuan, who is a popular folk singer and the second wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
The trip will be Michelle Obama's first to China. [Awwwww - I've never been there either!]The conservative watchdog group [Judicial Watch] obtained travel records from the U.S. Department of the Air Force that show the Obamas racked up $7,396,531.20 DURING JUST THREE VACATIONS 2013 – IN FLIGHT EXPENSES ONLY!!!!
In case you are keeping up with the math for PLANE TRAVEL ONLY - it costs $179,750 per HOUR to fly Air Force One. And United AL has a non-stop flight from Dulles (D.C.) to Beijing that takes 14 hours. That comes to $2,516,500 ONE WAY! And we all know AF1 will cost more because the Air Force doesn't fly for profit!
