President Trump’s first official trip as president abroad will be to the volatile Middle East region, including Israel, which is under constant threat of bombing thanks to their Islamic neighbors. Liberals are upset that President Trump has had to pick a safe hotel. They never complained about the costs of Obama’s vacations, but here we are.
In Israel, President Trump plans to stay at one of the safest places on earth – a bomb-proof, bullet-proof, poison gas-proof $5,700-a-night hotel suite that can withstand a rocket-propelled grenade or even a building collapse, NBC News reported on Friday.
The Daily Mail reports:
Trump will first arrive for a visit to Saudi Arabia on Saturday. He will spend two days inside the desert monarchy during which he will meet King Salman as well as other Gulf leaders.
On Monday, Trump will travel to Israel, where he will meet the prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and take in historic sites in Jerusalem.
On Monday night, he will bed down at the luxurious King David Hotel in central Jerusalem, where specially made preparations have been made for his arrival, according to the hotel’s operations manager.
‘The presidential suites have independent air conditioning in case of a gas attack and are built to withstand a RPG [rocket-propelled grenade],’ Sheldon Ritz said.
‘But still the US is bringing rocket-proof glass to put in front of the window.’
Ritz said that for one night the hotel will be turned into a ‘mini White House’ that is ready for any contingency.
‘If the whole hotel blows up the suite will come down in one piece, so maybe a few broken bones, but they will be alive,’ he said.
