So 45 not only treats SS poorly, he & grifter family have depleted the funds to pay them

If it weren't bad enough that Dolt45 treats Secret Service agents like they're servants, his regularly traveling to his resorts and golf clubs plus his jet setting family running all over the world for business and pleasure has depleted the funds to pay agents already and has agents bailing for greener pastures.

The agency has faced a crushing workload since the height of the contentious election season, and it has not relented in the first seven months of the administration. Agents must protect Trump who has traveled almost every weekend to his properties in Florida, New Jersey and Virginia and his adult children whose business trips and vacations have taken them across the country and overseas.
"The president has a large family, and our responsibility is required in law,'' Alles said. "I can't change that. I have no flexibility.''

Alles said the service is grappling with an unprecedented number of White House protectees. Under Trump, 42 people have protection, a number that includes 18 members of his family. That's up from 31 during the Obama administration.
Overwork and constant travel have also been driving a recent exodus from the Secret Service ranks, yet without congressional intervention to provide additional funding, Alles will not even be able to pay agents for the work they have already done.

3. Now that's an idea I could get behind. He'd HATE that so...

he'd either resign or be carted off in a straitjacket in no time at all that way.
