Thanks America for Funding Melania Trump’s NYC Living Expenses
Should Melanie Trump be allowed to exploit the American people by forcing them to pay for her unnecessary and wasteful living expenses with taxpayers’ money?
Social media doesn’t think so—and there are 436,000+ signatures joining the petition against Melania’s decision to live outside the White House inside Trump Tower, New York City.
Change.org’s petition suggests that we stop funding Melania Trump’s extra living expenses since she has refused to live inside the White House with her husband. However, she is still paying extravagant costs for Secret Service and New York City Police protection.
Petitioners think she should do the respectable thing and either (A) move into the White House like practically every other First Lady has done for generations or (B) pay the expenses for this extra protection out of Trump’s big pocket.
(Don’t worry, just because Donald Trump went bankrupt doesn’t mean he’s not still filthy rich. He can definitely afford it!)
The petition is nearing the required half-million mark to be forwarded to Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren for review. Obviously, they are no fans of Trump so it will interesting to see what they say on the matter.
I mean seriously…we’re trying to control the National Debt and Melania is spending big bucks to protect herself and her son while she lives a world away from her family?
How much is “big bucks” anyway? Like what, a measly five-grand or something?
Try almost $150,000…
This is a huge cost and not only is it wasteful spending (since Melania and her family could easily relocate to Washington D.C. if they cared that much) but it’s a debt the American Taxpayer inherits because of her queenly thinking.
And that’s not even bringing up how disrespectful it is for a politician and his wife to run for president, win, and then decide they are far too busy to actually live in the White House as a couple like everyone else does.
Goodness, even Andrew Jackson would think you’re a prick, Donald.
