    Secret Service vacates Trump Tower (or was more energetically booted out), because the rental and conditions (read: restrictions) is too much.

    Now what was Trumps promise about his properties?

    Plus it cost the secret service spent 30,000 on golf cart rent to follow trump on the golf course. Man the Profits this guy makes on his position is obscene.

    Maybe it's just me. But if someone offers to protect my family (24/7) for no cost to me, I would let them stay in my house for free.

    Trump making himself an easier target by making it harder for Secret Service to protect him. Every President since Nixon has had attempts on their lives. Stupid is as stupid does, as Forrest Trump likes to say.

    On the other hand, it's closer if they ever need to save him from an angry mob after he shoots someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue.

    I don't imagine private security is as good as the secret service.

    You know, I am not sure they can pay less than fair market value.

    Not exactly on topic, but still somewhat relevant: I'm a big fan of Russian theater, even getting to enjoy a production of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya a few years ago. This story has reminded me of an obscure Russian production that tackles the timeless and universal tangled relationship between landlords and tenants, whether in Russia proper or its Trump Tower outpost.

    On a lighter note, I also love this melodramatically cheeky rendition of a Langston Hughes poem by the inimitable Harry Belafonte:

    I do believe they are protecting Eric and Don Jr. but yeah I don't think they need a full detail as long as the president stays away. But the question is, will he stay away? Maybe they are there "just in case".

    Really bizarre isn’t it. Apparently Obama used to invite the secret service in for dinner. What a good chap he was!

    I don't see an issue as long as the rent is reasonable. Otherwise the pay for being president isn't enough.
