Breaking Down the Cost of Protecting President Trump and His Family

 

Warning - possible fake news

 

New York Police Department (NYPD) Commissioner James O’Neill said it will cost between $127,000 and $146,000 per day to protect the Trump Tower penthouse where the first lady and her 11-year-old son, Barron, live. (A White House aide has said the mother and son will remain in New York at least until Barron’s school year ends.)

 

the New York City Fire Department a combined total of $25.7 million to protect President Trumps family, private home and office for the 75 days between Election Day and Inauguration Day, O’Neill said in the letter asking the city’s congressional delegation to seek federal funding to help cover costs.

 

According to a recent Washington Post review of internal U.S. Secret Service documents, the agency has also requested an additional $60 million in funding for the next year - $26.8 million of which would go toward guarding President Trump’s family and Trump Tower home.

 

Trump has gone to Mar-a-Lago five times since his inauguration a little more than two months ago. The Post reported earlier this month that Trump’s first three Mar-a-Lago weekends alone have cost taxpayers $10 million dollars.

 

Nearly 130,000 people have signed a new Change.org petition demanding First Lady Melania Trump move to the White House - or pay for the “exorbitant” security costs at Trump Tower herself.

 

It appears that Trump may surpass Obama's constant vacation costs. 

 

The government supplies the President a residence, if Melania Trump doesn't want to live there, the cost is on her and her husband.

    Meanwhile, the homeless continue to seek shelter and food while the education & healthcare systems remain overlooked as if they aren’t a priority.

      Addressing the uncontrolled waste of money by the imperial Presidency does not necessarily mean that the expansion of the welfare/nanny state is a good alternative. Defense should be number one of the federal government.

    Lol, the Liberals will report ANYTHING if they think it will look bad for Conservatives. How much tax-payer money was spent protecting Obama and his family on his numerous golf outings and vacations?

      This isn’t something the nuts just brought up, the uncontrolled spending of presidents has a history. I find it strange that in America, the greatest nation in the universe, sophisticated, the envy of the whole plant spends a ton of money protecting their top leader, his family, dog, in multiple personal residences, who is afraid of assassination, just like in the lowest third-world toilet. Didn’t we fight to not have a king?

        The fact that there are Liberal nutcases out there is what creates the situation where the country needs to protect the President. As we learned with both Kennedy’s and a whole host of other Presidents and people, the Liberals will murder whoever they please. Donald Trump for example is and will be a target for Liberal nutcases who hope to assassinate him as well as to push their gun control agenda. It is for this reason that we NEED to protect the President AND his family everywhere they go. Liberals love violence and bloodshed and will do whatever they please in order to force their Liberal agenda on the country.
