I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!

I don't see why they'd be expected to pay Good man Donald we need more of this common sense approach. Thumbs up. Who cares Get a job Harry or maybe get rid of her Dead right why the fuck should the US pay for there security. Theres a pandemic going round and them 2 are jumping from Britain to Canada and now the US and expecting countries to pay for there security! 😅😅😅😅🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Good man realDonaldTrump feck the royal family. Bunch of twats Good why should they I say well done Trump....knock her down a few pegs! And that’s worthy of RTÉ news because ……… So wait no one asked anyone to pay for anyone’s security. Megs and Har never asked him to pay for it an in fact no one asked anyone to pay for it so the story is about no one asking anyone for payment/ service jez Louise the media is finding it a slow day

That's because Trump isn't a fawning pushover. He rather the money be spent on Americans. At least Justin T eventually saw the light in Canada. If they're out to line their pockets now- pay for it themselves!! How is this news? 👋🇨🇦😂 I’m sure Harry will show Hewitt s done Listened to him there on us tv ranting and raving about testing and how good his govt did for jobs and cars snd industry😳the man is a pure nut job!!!how does anybody listen to him?pure crazy,tg he is over there and not here,small mercies 👍

Don’t remember them asking him for anything Donald trump doesn’t pay bills, hence his many bankruptcy’s. I think i speak for the entire nation when i say at this moment in time nobody gives a rat's ass about harry and Meghan and they're travels. And that's probably the way they want it. First the this man says that actually makes sense

This is news that concerns the people of Ireland in what way exactly? no one asked him too Good to know his priorities are in place as usual Me heart bleeds for them! If the guy could've learnt something while he was in India. Atithi Devo Bhavah (Guest is God). Seriously? I don't think that's newsworthy at all.

Taxpayers money is not privately funding Who cares? The question is, why would any country use tax money for security or anything for the royals? I mean, if they host a event & invite royals or anyone to attend... it would make sense. Otherwise, it's basically leeching & parasitical behaviour. Trump doesn't want any more scroungers in his country!

Who cares? Did they even ask?! Fair decision by Trump. They can and should self fund Did they ever ask Proof please or fake news from the Daily Mail, again.... Good !!! If this is true, he's dead right. The only thing is, if anything were to happen to Harry or the baby there would be an almighty public meltdown. (Uk) especially over how Diana died with no royal protection. I would wager his dad or grandmother would foot the bill if they can't.

Have they asked US to pay for their protection? For once Trump is right. Trump doesn't even pay for security for himself! Evidenced by how many cities he has stiffed for the security for his campaign rallies. These are private campaign rallies - not part of POTUS work. He owes over $1m according to Business Insider.

He’s rather send money to Israel to fund their war on Syria And proper order. We'll done, Trump. 🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷 Gooooood! Yes at last common sense Jaysus they (she) didn’t last long in Canada. In fairness, They (she) would be bored to death there. Megxit They'll all sleep better tonight with that update. So? Leave them alone and who actually gives a f*ck? I’m sure they will work it out for themselves once you leave them alone and stop reporting their movements 😱😱😱😱

Well done realDonaldTrump this is the right choice. I agree with Trump, not often I agree with him. Security from what? Thought they were everyday people now 🤔 Where is the proof that they asked the US to pay? Where is it even mentioned that it's a possibility they did not. His tweets are unhinged on a good day. They should never serve as the sole indication that something happened.

brits will pay for it wherever they choose to roam. Some craic when harry gets kidnapped 🦄🌈🌏 MeghanAndHarry Covid_19 StayAtHomeAndStaySafe coronavirus No factual source. They never asked USA to pay for their security. Trump not doing his job. Trump reading tabloids, America should be terrified.

They never asked US to pay. He's got bigger fish to fry tbh... Why should they? But we had to pay for his when he came here? Makes sense. No one gives a flying fuck.. Seriously!!!!! You would imagine he would be busy enough these days. Trump on top of everything that’s important right now. TrumpVirus This will be a tricky one for Dublin Liberals. Trump vs Royals.

Funny, that. I’m almost certain our taxes had to pay for his & his family’s security when he visited his own property in Co. Clare.. Good... Disney can pay for it
