he just has no clue on how to be diplomatic. He should have known not to come out in public about talking to the Taiwanese leader and then why would he mention about whats the problem when the USA sell military hardware to Taiwan  when he should know they have to by law. Then his wife wants to stay in NY while their son finishes school at a cost of a million a day of NY taxpayers money for security . 

 

 

Your tax dollars paying for someone who is not afraid of saying he doesn't pay tax...

 

 

He pays the tax he's obligated to pay?

 

 

Does he?

Do you not think the IRS would have carted him to prison otherwise?

Good on Trump for talking about Taiwan. The whole 'one China' thing is a farce. You only have to go to Taiwan to realise that it is clearly not part of China and is an independent democracy.

He says he is "under audit" - that being the reason why he wasn't following convention to release his returns.

pretty easy , thats only $500,000 per person to follow both around NY city , think how many police you would need to stop Traffic in NY city to get motorcades through every day.





Common sense is not as common as you think.

But per day??? That $500,000 each way to and from school, about an hour maybe. Less probably.

I think we need a new thread now. We know who the president elect is. Time will now tell if he is good or bad or gets coal for Christmas.

Pretty sure there is no motorcade (well not one with flashing lights and traffic stopped for hours) for POTUS Children to get to school.

I'm not sure exactly where they live. The photos of the Trumps' NY high rise apartment show a lot of windows. I'd guess there are a number of secret service on nearby roofs scanning the area, +more on entrances etc.

I think most people would shocked by the cost of the secret service and associated security for the entire POTUS family. But it's budgeted for and ultimately a pretty small drop in a very very large bucket.

And, all or the vast majority of costs will still be incurred anyway, as they wont be hiring new people, buying new assets to fulfill that function.

But hey, any angle will suffice for a new head to add to Trump-Won-Hydra.
