President Trump has always been a stylish individual. He understands how to enter and depart a room.
And you couldn’t help but be impressed as his bada** procession of black SUVs rolled through Manhattan’s midtown district.

It seems like a parade for the “Good Fellas,” and I mean that in the best friendly, but tongue-in-cheek, way conceivable.
However, one Trump supporter observed something odd about the “parade.”
Take a look at the video and see if it dawns on you – if it doesn’t, that’s fine, too…
We’ll discuss about it farther down.
The following is a link to a video:
So, I’ve seen this “intriguing” issue about Trump’s security before — I’ve thought about it, but I’ve never said anything about it.
So, when I saw this comment from a Trump supporter on the internet, it made me think about it even more.
“Does anyone else recall seeing this degree of protection in the past for any former President?” he said. Sure, they have SS and extra police for Obama, Bush, and Clinton, but at 0:16, we see Trump with a 15 – 20 SUV motorcade with undercover and blocking cars, as well as an ambulance van? It’s strange how Trump’s “post-Presidential” presidency differs.”
He is correct.
This amount of protection and such a large motorcade are unusual for a former president… Unless he’s in a parade, of course.
Here’s what Trump gets in terms of security as a so-called “former president”:
The United States Secret Service is permitted by law to guard a former president and their spouse “under the direction of the Secretary of Homeland Security.” Presidents who do not get Secret Service protection, on the other hand, are entitled to “up to $1,000,000 for each former President and up to $500,000 for each former President’s spouse each fiscal year for security and travel related expenses.”
That is a significant sum of money for security, but it can vanish in the blink of an eye.
