Get serious - this is Donald Trump. He doesn't shell out a penny if he can find someone elseTrumps a rich man - let him pay for security at his tribute to his ego event.
The Secret Service has their own budget.President Trump isn't spending that money, the Secret Service is, that is required by law. I didn't hear you bitching at all when Hillary R Clinton travelled all over the world with a Secret Service detail and a State Department detail.
This was a result of Trump deciding to do a public event in the middle of the Capitol Mall on a national holiday, and the DC Emergency Planning Fund and the National Park Services having to provide all the public security measures that go along with that.
You know how much Barack Obama's or George Bush's July 4 Mall appearances drained from those sources?? Nothing, because they knew better than to disrupt a public, nonpolitical celebration.
