Trump won the election, so of course he’s going to celebrate in style:
Donald Trump is planning to embark on a “victory tour” through swing states in the coming weeks, an unorthodox move for an incoming president.
George Gigicos, the campaign’s advance team director, said the president-elect would head to some of the key states that voted for him after next week’s Thanksgiving holiday.
“We’re working on a victory tour now. It will happen in the next couple of weeks,” Mr Gigicos said.
He did not say specifically where Mr Trump would hold the coming rallies, but said it would include “the states that we won and the swing states we flipped over”.
So we don’t have an official tour date, but it looks like he’s going to visit the states he won and ignore the ones he lost, which is a great way to unify the country.
And even if he visited all fifty, the idea is incredibly stupid. That’s who knows how many millions of taxpayer dollars he’s going to spend on travel and security celebrating the cult of himself to accomplish nothing but further polarization. He has more important stuff to do than throw parties for himself, like go to intelligence briefings:
President-elect Donald Trump has received just two classified intelligence briefings since the election, in contrast to the nearly daily briefings his own vice president-elect has received, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday.
