That is an excellent point, @Martin Alonzo , and we have certainly seen people getting over the fence and right up to the White House (if not into it) several times in the last few years. We even had someone land their helicopter right on the lawn, if I remember right, just to prove how easy it was to do. With all of the crazy misinformation that is being put out by the fake news reporters, and so many people that are haters of the president, it is important. That he does whatever is necessary to keep himself safe. If he thinks that he has better security there than at the White House, then he should be staying where he is safe. I am sure that they discussed all of this before the decision was made, and however it is done, keeping our president safe and alive is the most important thing, regardless of how it is being paid for. Obama never seemed to worry how much it was costing for him and his whole family to travel around everywhere, and he was not even trying to pay for any of that himself like President Trump is doing.
