This or That

The NYPD estimated it costs between $127,000 and $146,000 per day to protect Mrs. Trump and Barron while President Trump is out of town, according to the New York Times. So that would come to roughly $189,800,000 for the four years Trump will be in office.

The cost to guard Mr. Trump and his family between the election and Inauguration Day reached $24 million, the NYPD said.

Conversely, Trump wants to shut off the National Endowment for the Arts, whose entire budget last year was $147,949,000.

So we can have a year of transformational art and budgets for artists (aka American jobs) or we can pay for a cadre of highly trained secret service agents to babysit a 10-year old socialite and his tart-turned-Trump mother.

God Bless the USA.

    1. I don’t know off hand…have you researched it? I have little doubt though – with this trajectory – Trump will have spent more on vacationing than any President in American history.


      1. I’m finding over $100m spent on Obama just on vacationing alone.

        Also, in 2016, he vetoed a bill that would have limited expense-spending for former presidents.

        But this seems more like political CNN spout rather than “press.”

        I think we spend too much on presidents, period.
