The secret service had to leave Trump Tower. You are not going to believe why! Due to a leasing issue! You read that right! We are paying his company to keep him safe.
The Washington Post reported Thursday that the Secret Service command post was moved to a trailer on a New York City sidewalk in early July. And a spokeswoman for President Trump’s company has said the agency should seek space elsewhere.
“After much consideration, it was mutually determined that it would be more cost effective and logistically practical for the Secret Service to lease space elsewhere,” Amanda Miller said in an email to the Post.
Trump will say that the lease wasn’t directly related to his company (do not believe him)! Just because you have an extra hand going in between the two -does not make it any less HIS company. You know the company that made him a billionaire. The company that is not (supposedly) still in direct contact with Trump himself.
Right now the secret service is in a trailer on the sidewalk outside of the Towers. They are 50 stories away from Trump’s residence. They are concerned that with that much space between the Two of them that security response may be slowed. Again! Let me remind you that this is for TRUMP’S security. However, the secret service is still hoping to make an agreement to where they can be back inside the Tower.
On a separate note: the US military has agreed to lease a Trump Tower unit for $130,000 per month! The need for that unit is pretty important! The Washington Post says,”That space will be for the White House Military Office, which provides services including communications and the handling of the “football” that the president would use to launch a nuclear attack.” To say the least, it is a pretty vital setup. As is having the secret service in the building.
I just do not understand. Everyone wants to praise Trump for donating his salary. Wow! Congratulations! At the same time, he is scamming the government for MORE that he is donating! I cannot believe that our tax dollars have to go to pay extra for his protection in HIS building!!! Can we say conflict of interest? My suggestion would be to take away all protection and military services from Trump Tower. Let Mr. Billionaire pay for his own protection! Harsh I know…but life is not handed to everyone on a silver platter!
