Many people in New York City want Melania Trump into the White House, despite her desire to stay with her youngest son to provide stability.
Almost 100,000 people have demanded that Melania pack up and leave New York, after it was announced the next First Lady of the United States intended to stay in the city until her son has finished the school year.
Usually, the family of new presidents immediately move into the White House in Washington DC, but this time Melania wants to stay behind. On 21 November 2016, CNN Money posted a report with the headline (and claim): “Protecting Donald Trump costs New York City more than $1 million a day.”
The petition asks the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, and City Mayor Bill De Blasio to refuse to pay to protect Donald Trump’s wife, after he moves out of Trump Tower, the 58-story skyscraper on Fifth Avenue in midtown Manhattan, where the family currently reside in the luxury penthouse.
“The New York taxpayers refuse to pay over $1 million a day so she can stay,” the petitioners wrote. “If this decision has been made, between the two of them they should be the ones to pay for it. Not New York taxpayer dollars that could be used on roads, schools, transit, sanitation, new jobs and other expenses that the city has.”
They added: “This is what tax dollars should be used for, improvements for the city and all the people of the city, not just one.”
Do you think Melania and Barron Trump should be allowed to stay in NYC?
