Trump Tower to be "the White House of New York."

Compared to the cush lifestyle he lived in his New York Trump Tower, Donald Trump will be roughing it in the White House and has made it pretty clear that he's not thrilled about the house swap. Turns out he's not alone. Melania and Barron Trump won't be living in it at all, according to the New York Post.

"Melania is extremely close to Barron, and they have become closer during the campaign," a source "close to Trump's transition team" told the New York Post. "The campaign has been difficult for Barron, and she is really hoping to keep disruption to a minimum."

Melania is set to stay in New York with Trump's son, Barron, who attends school in the Upper West Side. The future first lady is expected to travel to the White House "as needed," but will primarily remain in Trump Tower to focus on Barron.

"Melania is very supportive of her husband and is fully on board of doing everything that's needed as first lady," another source told the Post.

With Trump tower set on Fifth Avenue and West 56th and 57th, lanes on the streets will be closed off because of security barriers. Former Delta Force commander and president of global security company TigerSwan, Jim Reese, told the Post:

"[Trump Tower] is going to become the White House of New York. The Secret Service is going to have to keep that whole area cordoned off so that some wacko can't get close and detonate a car bomb."

That is to say, the next four years will be about as miserable as the Trump's can make it for us.
