1. It is part of the POTUS job description to travel and he/she is afforded that which is deemed necessary and suitable for that purpose.
2. FLOTUS and offspring are likewise afforded special privileges..the wife & offspring of the POTUS and their safety is paramount in maintaining a stable environment for POTUS. As the representatives of America, this is money well spent, as long as it's not exploited and is fully accountable as being for US government business and interests. Personally, whether D or R, their protection is crucial and they are part of the whole package when POTUS is elected.
3. Israel built a wall, terrorist attacks and border penetration virtually stopped in it's tracks and have remained that way ever since. The wall is being built because illegal immigration policies have failed and a physical barrier is a best-guarantee undertaking to curtail what many see as an out-of-control penetration by undesirables whilst actual citizens suffer with homelessness, joblessness, no money in savings and a host of other priorities that take precedence over paying for illegal immigrants - America is broke and dusty and needs to restructure priorities.
4. He should release his tax returns, no questions asked.
Trumps intention to spend big on military, pull out/re-sign international trade deals, bring jobs and manufacturing back to US soil, eliminate nation building and build long overdue international relations and generally stimulate growth, both domestically and internationally is something I'm keen to see to fruition.
