Kellyanne Conway And Trump Jr. Make Major Decision, Drop Bombshell On Critics

While members of the Trump family had a certain level of notoriety before President Donald Trump entered the political arena, there’s no comparison to the amount of attention they receive in the present day. The world is a gigantic fish bowl when it comes to the Trumps, and there are eyes on them at all times. While it’s easy to dismiss that as the price you pay for being famous, the reality is that the rest of us wouldn’t do so well under a microscope either.

As the Daily Mail shares, one member of the Trump clan is taking steps to find some additional privacy, and he’s taken an unusual step to make that happen. Reports are making the rounds that Donald Trump Jr. has decided to pass on Secret Service protection. It’s unclear if his decision also applies to protection afforded for his wife and children, but it’s nonetheless an eyebrow-raising revelation.

There have been a number of reports making the rounds that the Secret Service is undermanned and strapped financially at the moment, but Trump Jr.’s decision appears to be unrelated to that. It’s also been noted that White House adviser Kellyanne Conway is without Secret Service protection, but that appears to be due to the fact that any lingering threats against her have appeared to subside.

Either way, it’s awfully curious that this information was leaked to the press in the first place. When reached for comment, the Secret Service neither confirmed nor denied the report.

“To ensure the safety and security of our protectees and their families, we will not confirm who is currently receiving Secret Service protection,” a spokesperson responded.

That makes perfect sense, as there’s no need to advertise who is and who is without protection at any specific point in time. On the Trump Jr. front, there may be something to his desire for more privacy. He was noticeably absent from his father’s speech at the United Nations on Tuesday, which was attended by other members of the Trump family. He could’ve simply been tied up on other matters, but the fact that he was missing did not go unnoticed. We’ll have to see how it plays out, as it could be as simple as him needing a breather from the limelight.

As for the speech itself, POTUS drew praise in many circles, while detractors expressed their usual combination of faux indignation and overdramatized horror. The commander-in-chief struck a firm tone throughout the speech, and he made it clear that there’s no wiggle room on certain things. Trump directly called out North Korea, Iran, Venezuela, and other pressing issues, but he would also take the time to plug one of his neighboring buildings.

“I actually saw great potential right across the street, to be honest with you, and it was only for the reason that the United Nations was here that that turned out to be such a successful project,” Trump said during the speech, in reference to Trump World Tower.
