Donald Trump called out Hillary Clinton's use of Air Force One for campaigning purposes, asking "Who pays?" for the hourly rate of $206,337 (2-year-old estimate) it costs to run the plane, CBS News reports.

Trump tweeted:


President Obama invited Clinton to fly with him to North Carolina, where he will campaign with her this week.

Trump called it a "total disgrace" that taxpayers are paying for the president and the Democratic nominee to be ferried around for what is clearly not official business of the president.


CBS News reported Clinton is forced by campaign law to share the cost of the trip with the White House.

North Carolina is a battleground state key to November's presidential election. Obama won the Tar Heel State in 2008 but lost it in 2012. Clinton hopes to be buoyed by Obama's 51 percent approval rating, CBS News reported.
