The First Lady of the United States, the mother of Barron Trump, announced that Barron Trump wants to stay in New York City until he finishes the school year.
“Melania is extremely close to Barron, and they have become closer during the campaign,” a source within President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team told the New York Post. “The campaign has been difficult for Barron, and she is really hoping to keep disruption to a minimum.”
The plan reportedly was for the 46-year-old wife and her 10-year-old son to remain together at the Trump Tower penthouse in New York City until the end of this school year, if not longer.
Melania is great and devoted parent, but liberals don’t want to see that. Instead of that, they are lashing out at her for wasting taxpayer money.
Their ire lay with the costs associated with Melania and Barron remaining at Trump Tower.
“The Secret Service is going to have to keep that whole area cordoned off so that some wacko can’t get close and detonate a car bomb,” a security expert explained to the Post.
“Who is paying for the extra security costs?” complained one naysayer on the New York Post’s Facebook page. “That would be you, the hard pressed American tax payer, yet you were promised smaller, less expensive government. Trump lied.”
But, so did Obama.
According to McClatchy DC, President Barack Obama’s family spent at least $70.5 million during his first seven years in office on “personal or largely personal travel.” Just first lady Michelle Obama’s family trip five years ago to South Africa alone cost $424,000, as reported by U.S. News & World Report.
The difference is that Trumps are trying to be good parents, unlike Obamas who are spending their money on extravagant holidays.
