Trump Extends Post Presidency S.S. Protection to 13 Family Members

But the question is, will they let the agents use the toilets?

Even though his presidency is over, Donald Trump hasn’t stopped granting special favors to his family. According to The Washington Post, Trump extended temporary Secret Service protection to 13 members of his family, including his sons Donald Jr. and Eric, his daughters Tiffany and Ivanka, and their respective spouses and children. They will receive around-the-clock, taxpayer-funded protection for the next six months.

The Former Presidents Act of 1958 grants Trump—as well as former First Lady Melania Trump—lifetime Secret Service protection. His 14-year-old son Barron will be protected until he turns 16. Former Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama only extended their Secret Service protection to their college-aged children, according to the Post.

3. Biden shouldn't change this

It is a small cost when compared to the propaganda value of something happening to them. He should also extend Pence's protection past the six months.

Don't act like Trump. Let the DoJ deal with them.

The right wing nutjobs will be after him for years.

10. I've heard it during all the talk about

whether it’s worth convicting him now that he’s gone. It makes sense that he would lose the Presidential perks.

Or death sentence, if court deems appropriate.

12. I don't want to be the one who cancels the protection

and Barron or Tiffany is killed. That could destroy a Presidency. Don't put a false flag past these people.

15. Barron is entitled to two more years.

Let the rest hire their own security.

13. meh ... this doesn't really bother me

It's awfully small in comparison to the joy of the day.

Other presidents asked for extension for their children, but neither W. nor Clinton had as many children (and none of their children were married), so there weren't nearly as many.

It seems likely that the trump family will probably be charging the secret service for accommodations at trump properties where the kids will be spending time, so I suppose it's typical in that way. But still, I can't bring myself to care today.
