  • There will also reportedly be 100 Secret Service agents in town when the family arrives
  • The group previously took this same vacation back in 2015
  • It is not clear what the cost to taxpayers will be for the trip
  • President Trump criticized the Obamas on multiple occasions for their trips to Aspen 
  • He is in Mar-a-Lago this weekend for the seventh time, with each trip costing a reported $3million 

Donald Trump Junior shared a clip of him jetting off to a weekend in Aspen from LaGuardia in New York City. 

He captioned the post of the cockpit: 'Kai and Donnie helping fly Trump Force One. Little takeoff action at LGA this evening. Family spring break.'  

The three oldest Trump children will be heading west this weekend for some fun on the slopes, with Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric meeting up in Aspen for a family vacation.

It will be a reunion of sorts for the group, who take the same vacation together back in 2015 with their spouses and children, just a few months before their father announced he would be running for president. 

The three Trump children will not be joined by the commander-in-chief on the trip, with President Trump taking off for Mar-a-Lago on Friday afternoon with third wife Melania and their son Barron. 

It is still unclear what Tiffany's plans are this weekend.

There is no word yet on where the Trump party will be staying, though it will likely be clear once the group arrives in town, as in addition to the six adults and eight children on the tip there will also be 100 Secret Service agents according to one source who spoke with The Aspen Times. 

US Secret Service agents had already spoken to local authorities in advance of the group's arrival, and a local law enforcement source said that the Aspen Police Department was told they would not have to provide any assistance during the trip. 

The cost of the tip is unclear, but it will likely be even more than the reported $3million bill that President Trump racks up every weekend he heads down to Palm Beach.

And it will likely all be covered by taxpayer money.

The trip comes just a few years after Trump criticized the Obama family for travelling to the same resort town on vacation.

'Michelle Obama's weekend ski trip to Aspen makes it 16 times that Obamas have gone on vacation in 3 years,' wrote President Trump in a 2012 tweet.

'With 15% US real unemployment and a 16T debt, @Michelle Obama's luxurious Aspen vacation - her 16th - cost us over $1M.'

President Trump is currently heading down to Mar-a-Lago for the seventh time in his two-month presidency, for a total cost of approximately $21million.
