Trump-haters Harry and Meghan want U.S. taxpayer-funded Secret Service security

Harry and Meghan expect everyone else to pay for their way in life.

Trump haters Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who fled Canada and are now living in coronavirus hotspot Los Angeles, now want the U.S. taxpayer to pay the bill for their security.

You’ll recall that Meghan Markel hates President Trump so much that she vowed never to return to America while he was in office.  Now, she wants security that he will likely have the final say on. Oh the irony.

However, opportunistic Meghan is so career-driven that she put her hatred for Trump on the back burner so she could be closer to her “Hollywood PR team.”

And now, the duo who ditched the Royals want me and you to pay for their security.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry face having to ask President Trump for ‘special help’ if they want Secret Service protection for their new life in LA, as Canadians bid the couple and their security costs farewell.

Trump will have the final say over whether the couple can have diplomatic protection in the US, because Harry will no longer be classed as an ‘international protected person’ when he completes the final phase of Megxit next week, according to a royal source.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and ten-month-old baby Archie made a last minute dash across the border from Canada to the US this week to start their new life in LA.

Questions are now being asked about who will foot the bill for their new Hollywood lifestyles.

A royal source said the pair’s stepping down removes any obligation on the US government to pay for their security.

The UK and US have a long standing reciprocal agreement when it comes to bodyguards protecting diplomats and members of the Royal family.

The duo now has to rely on President Trump to make an exception to cover the costs, the source told Daily Mail.

“It will be down to Harry or his Met Police protection officers to ask for help,” they said.

Ultimately, someone is going to have to ask the State Department, and the final decision will rest with President Trump.

Harry and Meghan say they cannot live in the US without armed protection, which begs the question, why don’t they just pay for it?
