President of (Some) of the USA


Not sure if you have noticed yet, but we are 7 months into Trump’s term, and he has focused his visits to states that he won in the presidential election. Here is a breakdown of his visits to US States. Note the states in italics are the states that the Trump campaign won in the election. Following each state are the number of visits paid by Trump, and notes about these visits.

This is for travel from the day of his inauguration, to today (17 August 2017). (Note: The states he won in the election are in italics).

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Arizona
  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Colorado
  • Connecticut – 1 (to the Coast Guard Academy)
  • Delaware – 1 (to Dover Air Force Base)
  • Florida – 8 (seven times to Mar-a-Lago)
  • Georgia – 1
  • Hawaii
  • Idaho
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Iowa – 1
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky – 1
  • Louisiana
  • Maine
  • Maryland – 2 (to the CPAC meeting, and once to Walter Reed Hospital – which is basically in DC)
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan – 1
  • Minnesota
  • Mississippi
  • Missouri
  • Montana
  • Nebraska
  • Nevada
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey – 7 (to his Bedminster Golf Resort)
  • New Mexico
  • New York – 3
  • North Carolina
  • North Dakota
  • Ohio – 2
  • Oklahoma
  • Oregon
  • Pennsylvania – 2
  • Rhode Island
  • South Carolina – 1
  • South Dakota
  • Tennessee – 1
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Vermont
  • Virginia – 15 (once to visit the CIA, once to Arlington Cemetery, once to the Pentagon, eleven times to visit the Trump Natl Golf Club)
  • Washington
  • West Virginia – 2
  • Wisconsin – 2
  • Wyoming

So, lets summarize. Since his inauguration, Trump has visited 17 US States in 51 trips. Of those 17 states, Trump won 9 of them. Of the 6 states that he visited and did not win, he owns a building or a golf resort at which he stayed in 3 of them. The other 3 states house military facilities that he visited.

Of the 51 total trips, 26 of them have been to either Trump Tower in New York, or one of the three Golf Resorts he ‘owns’. If he were not visiting a military facility or one of his ‘homes’, he would not have visited any of the states he lost.

After reading this list, I have one question for you: Do you think Trump is the leader of all of the states, or just the ones that he ‘won’?
