In one of the more bizarre tales to emerge from the mainstream media in recent weeks, the left is now claiming the the Secret Service is going broke on account of President Trump.
There are plenty of examples of the leftist mainstream media going to war with President Trump simply because he is Donald Trump. The colloquial term among the liberals has been “resistance”, but, in reality, their antics are much more akin to obstruction.
Their incessant need to delegitimize the leader of the free world is nothing short of dangerous, especially in a world full of terror and violence where these seemingly petty squabbles are interpreted as signs of weakness by ISIS, Russia, North Korea, and a litany of other foes.
Now, in what could be the most egregious example of the mainstream media opening the President up to danger, the USA Today has declared that the Secret Service is nearly bankrupt, and it’s all Trump’s fault.
“The Secret Service can no longer pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump’s family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast.
“Secret Service Director Randolph ‘Tex’ Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year.
“The agency has faced a crushing workload since the height of the contentious election season, and it has not relented in the first seven months of the administration. Agents must protect Trump – who has traveled almost every weekend to his properties in Florida, New Jersey and Virginia – and his adult children whose business trips and vacations have taken them across the country and overseas.
“‘The president has a large family, and our responsibility is required in law,’ Alles said. ‘I can’t change that. I have no flexibility.”’
Apparently, when America chooses their next Commander in Chief, they should consider the size of their family so that the Secret Service can provide the President with adequate protection.
This is an extremely irresponsible insinuation printed by the USA Today, that will surely be relayed throughout the leftist media machine in the coming days. The news will likely spread far and wide, and foreign adversaries will view this information as an asset, not a threat.
It is this radical leftist resistance that is endangering not only our President, but his family as well, while simultaneously bringing shame to journalists the nation over.
