Liberals never asked the Obamas to pay for any of those very expensive vacations they took. Or all the golf outings that the President managed to take almost weekly.
But again, the double standard rears its ugly head.
New York lefties want Trump to foot the bill for his own security while he commutes back and forth to see his family there. Melania and Baron will stay, primarily, in New York until he finishes school in the spring.
The Hill reports:
In a letter Monday to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, six Democrats representing various New York City boroughs said Trump should pick up the tab for the security costs of living in Washington and Manhattan.
Also Monday, de Blasio said he’s asking the Obama administration to reimburse New York $35 million for Trump’s security costs through Inauguration Day on Jan. 20. He specifically requested House and Senate leaders to include the funds in an upcoming government spending bill expected to be considered in Congress this week.
Did someone tell these Einsteins that Trump is waiving his presidential salary? Did Obama waive his presidential salary? I don’t think so.
Why are Liberals suddenly so cost-conscious?
Maybe it took eight years of Obama extravagance to drive home the idea of being thrifty with taxpayer’s money?
Nope. It’s just another way for Liberals to attack Trump.
