Why? The Nosy Democrats Demand to See the Cost of Protecting Trump
The Democrats are the noisiest group in Washington. They just think that they have to know what everyone is doing at all times. But when it comes time to check up on them, they certainly raise a fuss about privacy. For President Trump, it has been a never-ending attempt to keep him under the microscope. They just want to see and hear everything that he is doing. The insane addiction that they have is what is fueling every investigation and action that they have taken against him.
The latest attempt of control comes by way of a request that they have passed along to the Secret Service. They want to know what it costs to protect the president and his family. And just not any incident. They want to know what it cost while they travel. The demanding Democrats have put a price limit on what it takes to protect the president. But of course, if the president was a Democrat, then there would have been no request made or limit put on protecting one of their own.
Their intent is to try and limit him any way that they can. Bernie Thompson is the Democrat that sits as the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee. He is the one that sent out the request to the Secret Service demanding such information. The investigation goes back to 2017. They want to know what has been spent on his travels since that time.
The reason that he gives is so pathetic. It is just a cover for a more sinister act of evil against the president. Thompson’s ridiculous request was because as he said, “In order to assess the agency’s forthcoming Fiscal Year 2021 budget request, I am seeking information on the expenses your office has incurred to support the travel of President Trump and his family throughout his time in office.”
The entire issue is coming down to which group should control Washington. Which should not be the issue at all. President Trump has the right focus. The executive branch and the legislature should be working together. But when the Democrats hate the president so much they are not even willing to work with him. They would rather investigate him for brushing his teeth.
In response, the Republicans are looking to place the Secret Service back under the Treasury Department where it belongs. It was removed and established as its own organization after the September 11th attacks on America. But before that can happen the Democrats want the records. For some weird reason, they think that they will have better access to the records. At least under the Treasury Department, the records would be safer than where they are now.
There is not a price that can be put on a person’s life. It does not matter if they are liked or not. The Democrats are at such a place now that they would rather no longer see the president than have to deal with him. They are very much like the Pharisees that hated Jesus to the point that they wanted Him dead.
Some numbers that have been released are said to be that the “Secret Service spent $1.6 million on four trips Trump took to his Mar-a-Lago resort in West Palm Beach, Florida, in his first two months in office. It spent $390,000 protecting his family during three vacations abroad in January and February 2017.” With a budget in the trillions, it is hard to imagine a few hundred thousand dollars should matter that much. Surely there are other things that the nasty Democrats could investigate.
Tiring Thompson stated that “Although GAO has provided analysis on this topic, its review was focused on a select number of individual trips. The large number of protectees in the Trump family and their frequency of travel has already strained the Secret Service’s budget, making it important that this Committee fully understand the resources required of the Secret Service to protect the First Family.” The Secret Service needs a budget that is more than enough to protect the president and his family.
