    Default Secret Service extension for Trumpís adult children cost $140,000 in a month

    Donald Trumpís adult children reportedly cost taxpayers $140,000 in Secret Service security in the month after the clanís patriarch left the White House in January.

    Ordinarily, family members of a president lose their security detail when they leave office. But in the case of the four Trump siblings and two of their spouses, the former president issued a directive to extend post-presidency protections by six months.

    The costs, obtained by the watchdog group Citizens for Ethics, do not include security protections at Trump properties in New Jersey, Palm Beach and Briarcliff, New York. With those factored in, the total would likely be far higher, according to the group.

    According to the watchdog, records reveal that the Trump children maintained a ďbreakneck speed of travel, and racked up significant hotel and transportation bills for the Secret ServiceĒ. Transport costs alone amounted to $52,296.75, and hotel costs totaled at least $88,678.39.

    That's chump change.
    Just like the complained-about expenses some of Trump's cabinet members made early on.

    We progressive liberals look petty complaining about stuff like that.
    Status has its perks or nobody would want or seek it.

    The pathetically bad performance of the past administration cost the nation TRILLIONS.
    That's what we need to be talking about.

    It figures the former grifter-in-chief would wring out every last drop of taxpayer money to protect his adult rugrats while they're flitting back and forth in luxury.

    Did they get the standard protection or the extended warranty? "But in the case of the four Trump siblings and two of their spouses, the former president issued a directive to extend post-presidency protections by six months."

    The Washington Post, which reported on Trump’s directive in January, found that extensions to Secret Service protections were also extended to former treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin, former chief of staff Mark Meadows and former national security adviser Robert O’Brien.

    Under federal law, Trump and his wife Melania are entitled to protection for their lifetime; their teenage son Barron receives his until he turns 16.

    I concern myself over the big issues, not forty-five cents worth of extra taxes I may have paid.

    No.
    We should pay for it.
    We're just going about it in the wrong way.

    We should be keeping them nice and safe in federal prison.
    I feel generous.

    Jared Kushner would not even let Secret Service agents use his bathroom. It is just common decency to let the agents risking their lives to defend you to use the toilet. But the trump family has no common decency.

    They had to pay $3,000 a month to rent a neighbors toilet.
