Trump Just Solved The Secret Service Budget Crisis
President Trump just solved the Secret Service budget crisis in the most Trump way possible.
Upon hearing that the agency had squandered its budget for the year and that the agency would have difficulty paying the hardworking patriots who dedicate their lives to protecting him, the President refused to wait for Congress to take action.
President Trump announced that he will be donating his salary to the Secret Service budget. On top of that, he says he will pay any additional expenses out of his own pocket “until Democrats give these hardworking men and woman the pay they deserve for their hard work.”
Currently, more than 1,000 agents are at the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances because of poor management on the part of the agency.
Trump “is committed to ensuring the Secret Service and all of those protecting our country have all the resources they need,” the White House said in a statement. “We are going to continue to work with Congress on this important issue, which requires their actions.”
“Why should we pay for him to go golfing?” Delaware Democrat Senator Pe Changle angrily told the New York Times. “We didn’t pump out this much money for Obama to go golfing.”
Changle introduced a bill Monday that would cap Secret Service funding until Planned Parenthood’s federal funding was doubled.
“I feel that we should be focusing on a women’s rights to proper healthcare rather than paying for Trump’s vacations,” Changle says.
Montana Senator Sharlene Shelly, also a Democrat, agrees with Changle, adding that increasing the Secret Service’s budget “should be the last thing that is even on the table.”
24 more Democrats have signed on to the bill. Zero Republicans have shown any support whatsoever.
President Trump has more patriotism in his pinkie finger than any Democrat in office. It’s wonderful to know that he loves people serving their country enough to make sure they can be paid for their work.
