The Cost of Protecting Trump--YUGE!

For those of you who thought the Obamas were costly to protect and fly and house and vacation.....you ain't seen nothin' yet. The Trumps are about to 'bust' the budget.
Protecting Trump's family presents unprecedented challenges. First off, it's a big family — 18 members in all — including Melania Trump and her 10-year-old son Barron, as well as four adult children, three of them married, with a combined eight grandchildren. Melania and Barron will live in Trump Towers, not the White House--at least for now. We'll see about that.
The Secret Service has not had to protect the adult children of "a president-elect in a long time. So....buckle up taxpayers! Right now the cost to taxpayers is more than $2 million daily, the documents show, a number that is sure to increase whenever the president or first lady travel — or when the threat level rises. What's the response from the party of fiscal responsibility??

I feel that Trump's abuse of the Secret Service budget (having TWO households guarded, while requiring a White House infrastructure to be built into Trump Tower) should be somehow addressed by Congress and outlawed.

We pay for the protection of the President and his family while they are serving in office - and we SHOULD - but we shouldn't be spending that kind of money on TWO residences and being forced to pay the bill on the deployment technology that has to be built into the second house because he wants to live like a jetsetter.

If they want to have two permanent homes while he's in office, he should fork out the bucks for the second home.
Thanks from Hollywood

Compare the cost of protecting Trump each month to the interest payment on Obama's portion of the debt: $17.5 billion per month. Trump is a bargain.

It's actually more than two homes. There are four adult children too. Junior and his home. Eric and his home. Ivanka and her home and Tiffany's home.
This is pretty much unprecedented.

Did you use this argument on the Bush family?? Will you use this argument when the debt goes up under Trump....after he leaves office??
Doubtful.

You mean Republicans portion of the debt.

Only the House of Representatives can spend money.

The Republicans have controlled the House since 2010.

Obama doesn't have any debt.

The Republican controlled House of Representatives doesn't have a portion of the debt either.

Republicans have all of the debt. Every dime of it.

We all knew you were a Constitutional illiterate, but it's even worse than we thought.
Thanks from tristanrobin and Hollywood
