That’s a lot of dough :
President Barack Obama’s two-day trip to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, last month cost taxpayers over $3.1 million in hotel and motorcade costs alone, according to contracts released by the State Department.
In what some described as a “futile ” trip, the president met with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, and the Gulf Cooperation Council countries on April 20 and 21.
The president required three hotels, including a $2 million  stay at the Ritz-Carlton. Rooms for security and the “VIP delegation” were also booked at the Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Tower totaling $200,000 , and the Courtyard Marriott totaling $240,000 .
