Comparing apples and oranges. Obama had 2 small children, Trump has 4 adult children with jobs and 1 small child. It is going to be more expensive with 4 adults.

If you want to complain about something it is the Bush's, Clinton's and Obama's getting Secret Service protection for life.

Yes, his children that are adults - are you that dense?  I will spell it out "children - noun, plural.  A son or daughter."

So for 10 years Trump was fighting the Chinese govt for a TM for his construction business.

Oddly enough after 10 years of refusal, they've granted it.

Trump was right. With his election, somebody is winning.

The biggest chunk of change is tricking out Park Ave like a TSA airport nightmare for Melonia and Baron Von Trump then sending the bill to the City.

That part really bothers me. The White House is basically a palace for the President and his family. In my pea brained opinion, if the family decides it's not good enough for them, no secret service protection at the other domicile.

Is this anything like the incessant Obama vacations, Cape Cod, Hawaii? Trips for Michelle, the girls and grandma? Remember, Trump is not taking a salary and he started as a millionaire while Obama who started relatively poor and left as a multi-millionaire.

No it's nothing like that. Obama's wife and children lived in the White House from day one.

 

Donny claims to be a billionaire not a millionaire.

It's nonsense to complain about any of it. They have to be protected.

Interesting that the posters who routinely whined about the Obamas are all crickets about this.

All presidents are offered this. It is fair. That said the apples to oranges is costs in NYC are astronomical. I don't begrudge Barron finishing out the year there. Next year will be a different story.

I will say I don't fault the NYC costs through this school year as Barron finishes school. They should move him starting next school year.

But the fact that Obama's traveling lifestyle was more extravagant than the entire extended Royal Family was never an issue.


Link? Of course England is much smaller

As if he's not benefiting from US and foreign officials staying at his hotels or renting space in his office buildings.

Trump will likely leave the White House wealthier than before he became POTUS


He once bragged about this

Incessant vacations? Compared to whom?

I don't begrudge the Trump family protection. I do find it interesting that 3 of 4 weekends Trump has hightailed it to Maralago. Incessant?

But hey maybe he's working hard the whole time. And will have his healthcare proposal and tax plan to Congress in the next few weeks as promised.

Wouldn't bet on it.

So, you don't think it is fair.  You are changing the rules because you don't like who is President.

Isn't that the plan.??

 

They didn't want to take him out of school until the school year finished. If they don't then complain.

 

Are these costs based on them living in NY all 4 years ..??? If they move to DC, the point is moot.

King don and his family will supersede all those costs by only hundreds of millions of dollars.

Everyone knew protecting the Trumpinator would be expensive.

Trumpinator himself could care less, not costing him a dime, he pays no taxes.

There is only one person that can significantly lower the cost. He won't.
