Donald Trump claimed he would not profit from being President; it seems that was just another of his lies
Braggart and President-elect Donald Trump was very keen to announce he wouldn’t take the £456,000 ($569,000, €537,000 or درهم2.1 million) salary and expenses that goes with his new job, but now it looks as if he’ll make a hell of a lot more if what the New York Post is suggesting comes true.
According to the paper, it is expected that Trump – whose daily security bill is already topping £801,000 ($569,000, €944,000 or درهم3.7 million) – will lease two floors of vacant space within Trump Tower to the Secret Service to house upto 250 agents and cops.
Given the prevailing rental rates in the building, Mr Trump looks set to rake in £2.4 million ($3 million, €2.8 million or درهم11 million) in rent; so much for not profiting.
Profit from the Presidency? Look no further than Obama and his newly acquired lavish lifestyle.
