If Melania Trump was a Democrat, the mainstream media would hail her as a hero for her rags-to-riches story as an immigrant who rose from nothing to become our First Lady. Since she’s a Republican, however, Melania has been vilified by the mainstream media for nothing more than out of spite.
The UK Independent reported that over 500,000 people have signed a petition demanding that Melania either move to the White House immediately or pay for her own security costs in New York City. Melania is still living in Trump Tower with her son Barron, as she chose to remain there until he finishes fourth grade in June.
“The US taxpayer is paying an exorbitant amount of money to protect the First Lady in Trump Tower, located in New York City,” the petition stated. “As to help relieve the national debt, this expense yields no positive results for the nation and should be cut from being funded.”
The petition has well surpassed it’s goal of 150,000 signature and has been sent to as the U.S. Senate as well as Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
“If she chooses to live apart from her husband, the American taxpayer should not pick up the tab!” one petition signer wrote. “They can afford to pay for the extravagance of living apart. The tax payers have provided a perfectly acceptable home which has met the needs of every other previous president.”
“Every first lady has lived in the white house. We pay enough for Trump’s golf trips,” another added.
Given the millions of tax dollars Barack Obama spent on his own lavish vacations and lifestyle, it’s ridiculous that liberals suddenly care about the national debt. Instead, this is just another sad attempt to make Melania Trump look bad to the public.
