Former US President Donald Trump’s actions to overturn the US election results have cost taxpayers a massive $519 million.
According to media reports, the ex-leader has been very heavy on the pockets of taxpayers as his vain efforts to overturn the US 2020 election results cost a whopping $519 million. Moreover, experts claim that this amount is still growing with each day passing by.
The shocking news came via spending record reviews that covered local, state, as well as federal boards while gaining more evidence from government official interviews conduct through the Washington Post as well.
In the same way, news broke out on how the expenses were clearly associated with Donald Trump’s fruitless measures that continued to increase on a daily basis.
In the same way, there were various agencies from the Government who talked about how they were left with no option but to channel out public funds.This was to address actions that were taken by the president himself, alongside his supporters who termed the elections had been rigged or stolen from them.
The expenditures included plenty of legal fees which arose due to a series of unsuccessful and vain lawsuits.
In the same way, funds were allocated towards heightened security measures in regards to death threats that were made against poll workers as well as expensive repairs that arose due to the destruction on the Capitol building, on January 6th.
In addition, the mega insurrection also led to the massive deployment of thousands of troops from the National Guard who lined the streets of the US capital in Washington DC. The threat of fears and violence ahead of the inauguration was plenty and therefore these troops remained on standby at all times.
Hence, more than $480 million of the overall costs came from military troop deployment, which will continue till mid-March and therefore was a part of Trump’s attempts to overturn the results of the elections.
Critics also mentioned how Trump’s refusal to concede the new US President Joe Biden is one of the highest financial impacts to ever take place, being documented in US history. In the same way, they also added how we may never be aware of the actual amount in reality too.
