    Because of the first post I quoted, I'm going to choose to hope that he can indeed change and learn. Because hope makes for a much more positive outlook on life in the mean time....

    And I bet you can figure out...if the family is in 2 locations, it will cost twice as much.

    I think a great step in the right direction would be to remove Bannon from his post.

    There have been many times, the president and his family have been in different places, which means, twice the SS protection.

    It isn't exclusive to THIS president and, his family.

    That is what I had asked. I thought that the First Family usually stayed at the White House but it doesn't seem to be uncommon that they live elsewhere.
    Still seems like a waste of money.

    The living apart isn't the issue, and as you say not uncommon, the odd thing is having to rent a floor in the Trump Towers. If they are providing security, then why do they have to pay rent?

    Huh. Are you telling me that they're renting a floor for security and putting it on our tab?

    Defense Department seeks space in Trump Tower

    Trump Tower

    A Pentagon spokesman said Tuesday the Defense Department is looking to rent some space in Trump Tower for the “personnel and equipment who will support POTUS at this residence in the building.”

    Lt. Col. J.B. Brindle told The Washington Post the DoD is “working through appropriate channels … to acquire a limited amount of leased space in Trump Tower.”

    According to the newspaper, the space would be separate from the Secret Service detail that is already based at Trump Tower in New York City. Melania Trump and their son Barron still call Trump Tower home.

    The possible move could raise ethical questions about a government agency paying rent to a company owned by Trump. The asking price for the department’s space hasn’t been released, but renting a floor at Trump Tower could reportedly cost nearly $1.5 million per year.
