WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – American taxpayers will be saving $400,000 a year during Donald Trump’s presidency because he has said he will not take a salary during his term. But the savings will also be offset more than three-fold because of Trump.
The presidential-elect recently announced that his wife Melania and their 10-year old son Barron will not be moving into the White House and remain in their New York residence at the Trump Tower.
It costs $1.4 Billion a year to protect the first family, according to official government figures. So we did the math.
That $1.4 Billion would double since security protocols for the family will happen in two separate places, Washington, D.C. and New York.
In addition, security measures around the Trump Tower could also cost the New York government big bucks since it is planning to cordon off the building and most likely reroute traffic in the area.
What a waste of American taxpayer dollars. What an inconvenience to New Yorkers
Welcome to the Trump presidency!
