America does not have a king. America is not a monarchy. But Donald Trump apparently thinks otherwise and the American people are NOT happy about it.
When President Obama visited England for the first time, he declined the gold-plated carriage the Royal family offered for his use during the state visit, opting instead to ride in a motorcade. The motorcade was not only easier to provide security for, it was less expensive and demonstrated that Obama was truly a man of the people.
Donald Trump, however, is demanding that the horse-drawn gold-plated carriage be rolled out for him and that a parade be organized down the Mall to Buckingham Palace in October.
Of course, we all know that Trump is NOT a man of the people no matter how much he makes that claim. After all, we’re talking about a man who continues to live in a gold-plated penthouse in Trump Tower.
Trump literally thinks he’s a f*cking king and he is demanding to be treated like one even though the Constitution makes it clear that such titles of nobility are not recognized in this country.
The cost of security is going to be massive and it’s the American taxpayers who are going to be picking up the tab.
As news of Trump’s ridiculous demand spread, Americans took to Twitter to virtually tar and feather him in the public square of social media.

@kurteichenwald They should give Trump his ride on gold carriage – off a cliff. Seriously, they must have a spare gold carriage.

Perhaps we could do a Cinderella in reverse. Gold plated carriage turns in to a pumpkin. Trump turns in to one of the rats. https://t.co/4I6J0a29Hz

https://t.co/D8gIwGQjPf This must be stopped. It could be very dangerous for the horses and the carriage could be damaged from an attack.

Trump wants a gold-plated carriage for when he visits the Queen? Golden carriages, golden showers… he expects A LOT when he visits Europe!

He’s a child, right? Needs a fancy carriage ride to prove some weird, “I’m important” view. https://t.co/9BhfAKSTJO

Would it be beneath her majesty if she told him to fuck off? https://t.co/FKh5sf0CMY

At this point, the world and the American public should all tell Trump to f*ck off. He’s an embarrassment who has turned our nation into a laughingstock around the world. Trump is not acting like a president, he’s a petulant child pretending that he is a monarch. That’s as un-American as it gets.
