Donald Trump could reverse his recently announced cuts to arts, poor and elderly services if he cut his trips to Mar-a-Lago and lived permanently in White House instead, figures indicate.

Calculations show four programmes that face elimination – which tackle homelessness, unemployment among over-55s, participation in the arts and helping the poor access higher education – could be maintained at the cost of the President’s trips to his private Florida resort over the course of four years.

The services amount to a total of $597 million — just less than the $600 million security arrangements for the Mr Trump’s Mar-a-Lago visits are estimated to cost the taxpayer over the course of his term.
