    Secret Service budget asks for $25M to protect Trump Tower


    I'm predicting that all the pro-Trumpians here already LOVE the idea of their taxpayer dollars being spent to pay $25 million (per year) just to bolster security detail for Trump Tower. Yes, that's a single Trump Property alone. Just Trump Tower in Manhattan. ;)

    Maybe the Trump WH and the SS will later ask Americans taxpayers to pay up an additional $300 million to protect all the remaining Trump properties (all his golf course, casinos, his Florida Mar-a-Lago resort, etc). Cuz you know….. the Trump Properties absolutely needs to be protected from possible terrorists, you know.

    But is Trump federal budget going to allocate any money to secure and guard the property of ordinary American homes and businesses? Dream on!

    Sorry,I should have told you that I compared with north European ways to deal with things,here,schools,hospitals and nursing homes have higher priority for tax payers money than hotels owned by millionaires.

    This is no different then Obama and every president before him. Government money is used for Security and fortifications of the private residence of the president. Unfortunately for this president his private residence in a high-rise in Manhattan where 10's of thousands of people go in and out of every day so it is going to cost way more to secure then a private residence in Chicago or a ranch in Texas. It is what it is.

    The cute name-calling is edgy and all but I'd suggest if you actually want back and forth conversation you drop the childish act and be an adult. Assuming you are one, that is.

    The last few administrations have been raping the American tax payer. If Teump doesn't want to stay in the WH he should pony up the funds to cover that expense.

    Tell me again which buildings Obama and the Clintons wanted to protect using tax payer money again - I forgot. You know - since you brought them up and all.

    Protect for past Presidents has existed for quite some time. You do understand that this is a different scenario, right?

    The obamas abused us in different ways. The trips that the wife took to Europe with dozens of friends and aids. Entire floors of hotels rented for these friends. It was abusive and wrong, just as it is now.

    Deflection noted since Trump is on target to spend far more in his first year. It would be lovely to stay on topic in one thread. This is about Trump's SS and 25M being spent of taxpayer money. Let's focus on that.

    I understand that as said, Clintons/Biden/Obama have seemingly always resided in "modest" residencies and that Trump has seemingly always resided in his towers/resorts.....................
    the protection of the president will be where ever he resides, it's not like Trump decided to move from the ghetto area to a tower when he got elected.

    er, deflection is yours since Ibook did say BOTH cases where abusive.

    Wake up!!! It's not a deflection!!! I've said that it's abusive now. I said it in the post you quoted. I said it on post 9! Try reading the posts instead of just scanning for your "gotcha" moment. You aren't Rachael Maddow (or are you)?

    The optics are just bad. His budget would cut a lot of the safety net for ordinary people, yet he wants to spend $25M to protect the gold toilet.

    Furthermore, to have a discussion on this topic you need to look at precedent and other cases of abuse. Doing so IS staying on topic. Unless of course the issue to you is simply bashing Trump.

    Actually the whole idea of continued protection is stupid. Same as them continuing to use the titles. Mr. President/Madam Secretary. Sorry we should just kick them out and say fend for yourself just like Jane and Johnny taxpayer.

    No. But it gets tiring to constantly hear but but but.... As you implied - it's abuse of funds. No matter who is doing it. Right now - it's Trump. Look back to learn, look forward to succeed....
