Liberals are keeping up their war on Melania Trump, starting a petition drive to force her to take her son Barron out of his current school in New York City and move to the White House.
The petition charges that taxpayers are being forced to pay too much to provide a security detail for the First Lady and her son as they continue to temporarily live in Trump Tower. Signatories are demanding she uproot and move, or personally foot the security bill.
It has thus far garnered over 400,000 signatures at the time of this writing.
Via The Hill:
More than 200,000 people have signed a petition calling for first lady Melania Trump to either move to the White House or pay for the security costs associated with her protection at Trump Tower.
“The U.S. taxpayer is paying an exorbitant amount of money to protect the First Lady in Trump Tower, located in New York City,” the Change.org petition says.
“As to help relieve the national debt, this expense yields no positive results for the nation and should be cut from being funded,” it adds.
The New York Police Department has estimated a daily cost of $127,000 to $146,000 to protect Melania and Barron Trump.
The First Lady had already clearly stated she would like Barron to finish the school year before they move to the White House, so there has never been any concern that they would not be leaving. Even so, they have decided to move earlier than that, with a date of June and a new school district already set.
So to those of you signing this petition – you’re demanding something that is already happening. This is purely a symbolic effort whose only goal is to satisfy liberals seeking to bully Melania.
If Dems can sign a petition demanding Melania move TO Washington, DC..can we sign one demanding the Obamas move FROM DC? @TuckerCarlson

The petition will supposedly be sent to Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, two Democrats who had no problem watching the Obama family amass nearly $100 million in vacation and travel fees during his eight years in office, not to mention the nearly $10 trillion he added to the national debt.
The liberal attacks didn’t stop there either. Melania recently spoke and took part in a presentation ceremony at the International Women of Courage Awards at the State Department, and they somehow managed to find something wrong with THAT!

Melania Trump handing out Women Of Courage awards is breathtakingly WRONG!

She’s on her own supporting Barron and his schooling, while honoring women for their courageous efforts but hey, Melania is a successful woman married to a Republican president, so we need to attack every move she makes no matter how foolish it may seem.
If you ever wanted to know what a true ‘war on women’ looks like, just keep watching what liberals do to Melania and Ivanka Trump. Sad!
