President Donald Trump announced that he would refuse to allow the United States to pay for the security of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. But it prompted many to wonder why the president is concerned about British royals at a time Americans are being ravaged by the coronavirus.
“I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!” Trump tweeted.

Once a jerk always a jerk. Glad to see you’ve got a lot of extra time on your hands for dealing with this critical issue. You being distracted saves lives. period.

Today, Donald Trump has tweeted about:
-His TV ratings.
-His poll numbers.
-The "lamestream" media.
-Harry and Meghan.
Also today, hundreds of Americans died and tens of thousands got sick with the Coronavirus in part due to his Administration's failed response.

His country is battling the corona virus, but this is Trumps way of setting his priorities straight: letting Harry and Meghan pay for their security. Poor USA. https://t.co/jAXozZHhOC

The Queen thinks you are a dolt. Even at 90 yo she has more sense than you can ever have! Harry & Meghan would NEVER come to the US to live while you are “president”.
BTW, it’s 3:13 PM EDT and we’re at 2390 deaths. You just can’t do anything right. #coronavirus #COVIDIOTS

Is this how the imbecile prepares for his #Coronavirus news conference, thinking about Harry and Meghan? Good to know he prepares so carefully.
