Trump Tower brokers now marketing taxpayer-funded Secret Service as a perk to wealthy buyers

Published

Is there any benefit of the presidency that Donald Trump or his associates won’t try to use to personally enrich their businesses?

It’s a question that’s been asked regularly over the past month, and it’s certain to get asked again now that Secret Service protection is now being marketed as a Trump Tower perk to prospective buyers and renters.

Politico reports that real estate agencies have been trying to sell apartments and condos in Trump Tower by touting the best-in-class security that will be delivered by the Secret Service.

“Fifth Avenue Buyers Interested in Secret Service Protection?” wrote one real estate agency pushing a $2.1 million condo inside the tower.

“The New Aminity [sic] – The United States Secret Service,” read a flier posted by another agency, which also touted the apartment it was selling as “The Best Value in the Most Secure Building in Manhattan.”

American taxpayers right now are paying an estimated $500,000 per day to keep Trump Tower secure, and the building could make additional money off taxpayers by having the Secret Service pay rent to fund a permanent presence there.

President Donald Trump reportedly doesn't care about terrorists, according to sources inside the room after Democrats abandoned the Wednesday meeting with the president.

Washington Post Congressional reporter Mike DeBonis said that the president said "several times" in the meeting that he isn't concerned about terrorists that live 7,000 miles away.

The source said that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) had to remind the president that the Sept. 11 terrorists "came from 7,000 away" themselves.

The president has neglected to understand terrorists can attack the U.S. on North American soil as well as at embassies, military bases, international sporting events, or even Trump's properties. It would be simple for ISIS to use a car bomb to attack Trump's property in Indonesia, as an example.

President Donald Trump's former special envoy to Ukraine testified about fears that Rudy Giuliani was trying to cut a "grand bargain" with Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin, according to a new report in Axios.

Volker reportedly testified that Bill Taylor was reluctant to take the position of acting ambassador to Ukraine after the firing of Marie Yovanovitch.
