Paying American tax dollars to the British Royal Family stopped in 1776.
President Trump intends to keep it that way.
The President has announced that the U.S. will not be paying for Prince Harry and Meghan's security protection.
Now that the former royal couple has left Canada for the U.S., they wanted Trump to grant them secret service protection.
But Trump has issued a statement that the couple must pay for the protection themselves.
See Trump's tweet as well as more details below:
Harry's exit from the Royal family means that he and Meghan are no longer considered an "international protected person(s)."
They initially moved to Canada from the U.K., but recent reports indicate that they have left Canada for the United States.
The ultimate decision rests on President Trump.
Given Meghan's extensive criticism of the president, not to mention her highly publicized snub at the Buckingham Palace banquet, it's not surprising that the president might not feel so generous.
Harry also made insulting comments regarding Trump on a prank phone call, where the callers were pretending to be Greta Thunberg.
Fox News confirms Trump's statement:
President Trump on Sunday didn't offer the warmest greeting to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle amid reports that they had relocated from Canada to the U.S.
A source told People Magazine last week that the royal couple relocated from Vancouver Island to Los Angeles, Markle's hometown.
Markle, 38, and Harry, 35, have been staying in a secluded compound and have stuck close to home during the coronavirus pandemic, the magazine reported. It's unclear when the couple made the move.
However, in a tweet from the president on Sunday, it became clear that U.S. taxpayers were not footing the bill for their security.
"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 exclaimed.
Rumors of a potential move to America have been circulating since the royals announced this past January that they'd "step back" and move away from the U.K. part-time.
It is being reported that Harry and Meghan are currently looking at houses in the Los Angeles region.
Many Americans took to Twitter to express their agreement with Trump's decision.
This comes after news that Harry's father, Prince Charles, has texted positive for COVID-19.
These are uncertain times.
It is unclear why Harry and Meghan are leaving Canada for the United States, but they were hoping the president would fund their security protection.
However, President Trump wants to wisely use American tax payer money and urged the couple to pay for their own security.
People Magazine confirms that the couple has left Canada:
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have left Vancouver Island in Canada for the U.S., a source tells PEOPLE.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved from the home they were staying in on Vancouver Island and are now settled in the U.S., the source says. They are in Los Angeles — Meghan’s hometown. They have been living in a secluded compound and haven’t ventured out amid the coronavirus pandemic.
A representative for the couple had no comment.
Although the couple and their 10-month-old son Archie had been living in Canada since announcing they were stepping back from their royal roles in January, sources told PEOPLE that they had been making plans to spend time in L.A.
Meghan, 38, has a big support system in L.A., including her mother Doria Ragland, who works as a social worker and yoga instructor, and several friends who visited the couple on Vancouver Island.
A person in their circle previously told PEOPLE that they were “looking at houses in L.A.”
“Harry is looking straight ahead at his future with his family,” another source said. “They will be spending time in California…He’s not looking back.”
Given that Democrats keep wanting to give hard earned American tax payer money to illegal aliens, no wonder Meghan and Harry thought we might pay for their protection.
Fortunately, the president continues to prioritize the well-being of the American people.
Ironically, when Harry and Meghan left the U.K., there was a section on their website stating how they planned to support themselves.
Perhaps they should revisit their own website and figure out how to pay for their own security!
