Previous estimates of secret service expenses going into Trump-owned properties were under-estimates;

Quote
The Secret Service has spent nearly $2 million of taxpayer money at Trump properties, literally paying Donald Trump for the right to protect him and his family, according to government records obtained and analyzed by CREW. Newly acquired records show roughly $1.75 million being paid to Trump’s businesses; however, these records appear to be incomplete. Previously published records, by CREW and others, which do not appear to be included in the documents, account for thousands more in Secret Service spending at Trump properties, bringing the likely grand total closer to $2 million.

One of the biggest sources of expenses was Mar-a-Lago, the so-called Winter White House. The documents, obtained by CREW through the Freedom of Information Act, show the Secret Service paying Trump’s private club more than $300,000 to protect him and his family there. Over his presidency, Trump made an astounding 146 visits to the Palm Beach club, which makes sense in the context of his inability to bill the government when he was staying at the actual White House. The records do not show any spending at Mar-a-Lago until 2018, despite the fact Trump visited that property many times the year before, and those visits are known to have resulted in tens of thousands of dollars of Secret Service spending.

Yeah, the expert compared it to people who die from lightening strikes while golfing:

    "More people die from lightning strikes while golfing," says Dr. William Roberts, a professor of family medicine and community health at the University of Minnesota, and the medical director of the Twin Cities Marathon.

Meanwhile there has been a noted increase in sports related heart attacks, as well as increased heart attacks among young adults, to which Channel 7 Boston blames on "cannibis use" at the 1:45 mark here -

Rare, but not unheard of for races that can attract tens of thousands of runners.
Three runners collapsed and died during the Detroit Marathon on Sunday. Although that news is shocking and frightening for runners and non-runners alike, such deaths are rare, experts say.

Joe is going to forgive student loans. He really means it this time, you guys. He's going to do it... as long as you vote for a (D) this midterm. He can't do it before then. It's not possible. Come on, man!

Keep what hidden?  People having a heart attack after running a marathon?  Why would that need to be kept secret?
