By now everyone has heard that Melania Trump doesn’t want to go to the White House with her husband after the inauguration. She wants their son Barron to continue going to his expensive private school in Manhattan instead. Of course, that means that New Yorkers are paying approximately $1 million per day in tax dollars for Secret Service. Many are making some calls to action and pointing out perfect ways to stand against Trump.
Can you even imagine the Republican response if the Obamas had done something similar? I cringe to even envision it…there would have been so much awful racially charged language and bad stereotypes about Democrats using welfare. Now their wealthy a-hole candidate is the one doing it!
That’s why this petition has taken off. Here’s what it says so far: “The New York taxpayers refuse to pay over $1 million a day so she can stay. If this decision has been made, between the two of them they should be the ones to pay for it. Not New York taxpayer dollars that could be used on roads, schools, transit, sanitation, new jobs and other expenses that the city has. This is what tax dollars should be used for, improvements for the city and all the people of the city, not just one.
This petition is to request Gov. Cuomo and Mayor Bill De Blasio refuse the cost President-Elect Donald Trump is requesting so his wife can remain in New York.” That’s pretty perfect, I’ve got to admit! Why should the taxpayers pay for this rich jerk to keep his wife and son in NYC?
