Trump has been out of the White House over 30 percent of the time since his inauguration. His spawn have taken numerous ski trips, and traveled to foreign nations on ‘business’ trips. Each time any of the ‘Von-Trump’ family travels, a team of secret service agents must be dispatched with them. They have placed a burden on the agency never previously experienced.
Secret Service Director Randolph “Tex” Alles told USA Today more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances — which were meant to last the entire year.
“The president has a large family, and our responsibility is required in law,” Alles told USA Today. “I can’t change that. I have no flexibility.”
While Trump’s budget will remove millions and billions of dollars from programs designed to help low-income and impoverished Americans, he and his spawn are spending taxpayer dollars by the ‘airplane full.’ At his present pace, Trump will spend more dollars in one year than President Obama did in eight.
Alles said they he plans to grow his agency by 3,000 employees in the next year to meet the needs of Donald Trump. He has met with congressional leaders and requested a raise in the combined salary and overtime cap for agents — from $160,000 per year to $187,000 per year.
In more ways than I can count Trump will be the most expensive president in history.
In 2014, Trump tweeted: “We pay for Obama’s travel so he can fundraise millions so Democrats can run on lies. Then we pay for his golf.”
Donny Boy has proven once again that ‘Trump’ is a synonym for ‘hypocrite.’
