Looks like nearly 100k people have put their John Hancock on a petition that is calling for Melania Trump to move into the White House or to pay the security bill for staying in Trump Tower herself, and not use any other funds to cover the costs other than what she pulls out of pocket.
Interesting yes? There was no such petition making its’ way around when Michelle Obama was taking 4 lavish vacations a year, with security, helicopters, special airport trafficking, and of course…taking her family and friends along with them.
Nothing about the visits to royalty all in the name of ‘education for girls’ but not really…mostly just spend dining and treating herself and her daughters to being princesses for a day, before moving on to the next kingdom to do it all over again.
The Trump family has already stated that vacations are not going to be a ‘thing’ with them and if it is…well it’s not going to be lavish, and as expensive as what Michelle’s standards were.
Plus…who are these people to sign such a petition against Melania Trump. She and her husband aren’t even being paid the presidential paycheck. Yet, Melania wants what is best for her son, and she feels it’s raising him another year in his childhood home at his school…and she gets the 3rd degree for needing protection because of who they are?
Give me a freaking break.
The people signing this petition are surely miserable people who wouldn’t know right from wrong if it planted one right on the kisser.
Besides…it’s just until SUMMER! Do these people realize it’s just a couple months away?
Yes of course they do, but their brains are such that they cannot be used to actually think.
The petition states: “The US taxpayer is paying an exorbitant amount of money to protect the First Lady in Trump Tower, located in New York City. As to help relieve the national debt, this expense yields no positive results for the nation and should be cut from being funded.”
Before he was inaugurated, the cost of Donald Trump and his family’s security protection in New York was estimated to be around £1 million (£800,000) a day. The NYPD later revised this amount, revealing last month that it had cost $24 million (£19 million) to pay for the security for Mr Trump and his family and guard Trump Tower over the two-and-a-half month period between the election and Inauguration Day, the New York Times reported.
The NYPD stated in a letter to members of the New York delegation to Congress that it costs between $127,000 and $146,000 (£101,000 and £116,000) a day “to protect the First Lady and her son while they reside in Trump Tower,” the newspaper reports. This cost is expected to rise to $308,000 (£245,000) a day when the President is in New York, though he has not traveled to the city since his inauguration.
People who signed the petition have also left comments condemning the money spent on keeping Trump Tower secure for the First Lady and her son.
Jodi Quesnell from Wyoming, wrote: “If she chooses to live apart from her husband, the American taxpayer should not pick up the tab! They can afford to pay for the extravagance of living apart. The tax payers have provided a perfectly acceptable home which has met the needs of every other previous president.”
Another supporter from Rhode Island, Sheila Forsyth, wrote: “Living in the White House is what you do when you are married to the president. The tax money saved by eliminating these extra protection expenses can be used to feed junior citizens. Why is our tax money being spent on people who already have more than their fair share?”
Of course, Lyn Siegel from New Jersey, a Democrat and total knob has said: “Every First Lady has lived in the White House. We pay enough for Trump’s golf trips.”
Trump’s golf trips? So far, there have been none that were for naught. Each and there are very few that have been for business purposes, and if he has swung a golf club for some downtime… WHO WHAT?
The lights in the oval office are on all hours late into the night, that’s Trump working.
Unlike Obama…who did nothing but lead from behind, and wanted to be rewarded for every little failed effort to ‘work’…with a vacation.
It’s disgusting that this petition exists…but, not surprising. They are liberal dummies after all.
