So far, Donald Trump has spent nearly every other weekend golfing in Palm Beach, Florida, and has racked up almost $4 million in local security costs.

However, now the Palm Beach government may finally recoup some of those losses with funding attached to the latest national budget.

According to the Associated Press, the $1 trillion spending plan, which is expected to be approved this week, includes $20 million for pre-inauguration costs in Palm Beach, as well as $41 million for post-inauguration costs.

The plan covers all the usual places Trump would rather be than the White House, like Mar-a-Lago, New York and New Jersey.

As golfer-in-chief, Trump has made seven trips to Mar-a-Lago. He also spent time there before he was sworn in as president.

Mar-a-Lago will close for the summer later this month, and with the recent warmer weather in the north, the 70-year-old president can now golf at his club in Bedminster, N.J., which is exactly what he's doing this weekend.
