President Donald Trump is taking a ton of heat after threatening to make sure the U. S. doesn’t pay for any security to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, now that the couple has decided to move to Los Angeles.
Trump it up Twitter a few moments ago, to acknowledge the fact that the former royal couple is now living in the United States. But, he included a message that our country will not help pay for the security of the famous couple.
“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.
Of course, Twitter went nuts…and many people attacked the President for even thinking of something like this during a very scary time in our country. Translation: There is WAY more important things for the President to be doing at this moment.
“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,” one person tweeted.
Another added, “How is this relevant right now? I don’t remember Harry and Meghan asking the U.S to pay for their protection. I guess someone’s still mad he wasn’t invited to the Royal wedding.”
One message read, “Hey President: You might quit fixating on princes or princesses or poll numbers, and concentrate more on pandemic and people and patients.”
But, remember, this is Trump and he had plenty admirers of his position on social media too!
“That’s right! We fought a whole war to be independent from the UK and now they want to throw their bills on us again. All that after Megan disrespected President Trump. Nope! Right move,” a supporter wrote.
Another added, “They act like two spoiled brats, who put down the President of The United States and then ask for special treatment when they come back to the United States!”
As we reported, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have made the move to permanently move their family to Hollywood! The couple fled Canada just before the borders between this country and their previous home closed.
Several reports suggest the reason for the move is to be close to Hollywood movie agents, PR companies, and production studios. Meghan has just announced her return to the business with a voiceover for Disney.
The major issue President Trump will have in enforcing his position is that LAPD, and other law enforcement near the ex-royals new home, will have no choice but to secure the area if fans, media and other descend on the property.
