Donald Trump and his family, including his four adult children, will continue to receive secret service protection at the expense of the American taxpayer.
According to the Washington Post, for six months, Trump demanded protection for “former treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin, former chief of staff Mark Meadows and former national security adviser Robert C. O’Brien.”
As the law states, Trump, his wife and his minor son are all entitled to protection.
In the case of young Barron Trump, he only gets protection until he turns 16-years-old under the law. So does former Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen, but only for the first six months after leaving office.
But Trump pushed for his adult children to be protected as well.
That means Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner; Donald Trump Jr., Eric and Lara Trump; and daughter Tiffany will still have their own agents.
“The perk for the Trump family is expected to cost taxpayers millions of dollars and further stress the elite federal security force, which in the past four years had to staff the largest number ever of full-time security details — up to 42 at one point, according to former senior administration officials,” said the report.
