As a supporter of both, I don’t like this news but I assume they will hire their own security. They definitely need to be safe from all the trump haters.
How about taking it away from the Clintons? They charge secret service their mortgage payment to stay in their residence.

Donald Trump Jr., his wife Vanessa Trump, and Kellyanne Conway are dropping Secret Service protection, Fox News has confirmed.
The move to get rid of round-the-clock protection came after Trump Jr. wished to have more privacy. Other family members of the president will remain under Secret Service protection.
Secret Service protection is mandated by law to protect the U.S. president’s immediate family members, unless told otherwise.
White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway has also dropped Secret Service protection, sources told Fox News. She was given Secret Service protection following threats in the early days of the administration, but the threat level that has since changed, The New York Times reported.
The agency’s resources were reportedly stretched due to the number of Trump family members who were using the protection, forcing the agency to use more agents who would otherwise be working on criminal cases or investigations, the Times reported.

The more I think about it, the more I think this shouldn’t have been announced. The media has put them at higher risk. Anyway, I wish them safe.
