I am fully prepared to live with a president that declines his own salary, while trying to fix the disaster of the last 8 years.
The presidential salary is a pittance compared to the EXTRA hundreds of millions that the Trump entourage security is going to cost you and me over the next four years.
I think it's stupid to quibble about the fact that presidents have families, and they take vacations, and that that costs us dough because they need to be protected even when they are not in the White House. I never begrudged Bush his trips to his ranch.
But as the article points out (had you bothered to read it) the Trump situation is many orders of magnitude outside the parameters of normal when it comes to such protection. I'm not sure we've ever had such a situation . . . three adult children who globe-trot for the purpose of using the family (now publicly-owned, by the people of America) name to drum up more dollar bills for their pockets, all while billing the American people for the costs of protecting them while they do it.
