    On that note I'm going to bed before I turn into a pumpkin. See everyone tomorrow!

    Trump should take a tip from the clintons: start a charitable foundation which only gives 10-15% of the donations to the charity. Use the rest to cover administrative expenses. Strong arm other countries to pour money into it, giving them favors to keep it coming, even if it hurts the country.

    Are you kidding? Clinton would have stolen more than that.

The secret service can drive him or chopper him there and back if need be sure beats the use of a jet and all of the other security measures they'd have to take as well.
    For openers he can go where he wants to go. He has no control over what the Secret Service does. Air Force One wasn't his idea. The guards aren't his idea. None of this is on him.

    You are right, of course.
    None of this is his fault. That 1.5 (trillion is it?) is added to the deficit is not his fault. The dems could have prevented it by caving in.
    The cost of building a wall is not his fault. The dems could agree to fund the cost but didn't. It's the dems fault.
    Obamacare. A bloody disaster. The dems should have voted to abolish it and allow medical care to reach its own level. They didn't. It's the dems fault.
    All of his Admin picks were exceptional. It wasn't Trumps fault he had to dismiss those he dismissed. It's the fault of the media.
    There shouldn't be any investigation into Russian tampering into the election because they didn't interfere. It's everybody's fault.
    It's all a conspiracy to bring him down because Clinton lost the election.
    I don't know why I didn't realise it before!

    The thread is about spending for the President. I don't know why you're here. You never add anything to this forum.

    All of your points are wrong anyway. No, made up bull$#@!.

    I agree he can go where he wants; just that there are ways to help reign in the costs which are something he can assist in. If he's going to a golf course 10 miles away, he won't need Air Force One and all the trappings that go along with it. That was the primary point of my post.
