An Online Petition Calls For Melania Trump To Leave NYC Or Pay For Their Own Security

A petition on Change.org is calling for Melania Trump to Join her husband in Washington, or to pick up the tab for her security at Trump Tower in NYC herself.

Hot on the heals of the Attorney General escalating pressure on ‘sanctuary’ cities, one sanctuary city, ours, has found a way to save more than just a little money …by asking the First Lady to join her husband in the White House or to pick up the substantial tab for her security herself.

Here’s what the petition says:

The U.S. taxpayer is paying an exorbitant amount of money to protect the First Lady in Trump Tower, located in New York City. As to help relieve the national debt, this expense yields no positive results for the nation and should be cut from being funded.

As of writing this article the petition stands at 99.256 signatures with scathing comments ranging from “We pay enough for Trump’s golf trips” to “If she chooses to live apart from her husband, the American Tax Payers should NOT pick-up the tab!

(UPDATE March 3rd, 8:30am – There are now 250.554 signatures)

An article by Metro.us states that taxpayers are spending around $136,000 daily to protect the First Lady and her son, Barron. If Mrs Trump decides to stay in the city when Barron finishes his school year it would cost America an estimated $46.9 million.
