If anyone knows what the best hotel accommodations should look like, that would be Donald Trump. While his own hotel rooms are pricey, they probably don't come near to the $100 million price tag that the Israel press estimates will come along with his accommodations at Israel's King David Hotel in Jerusalem for his 28-hour stay.
You can do the math, to put Donald Trump up in this hotel it comes to a bit over $3 million per hour. That is not just for Trump, but his entire 1,000 person entourage as well. What the president is getting for this fortune is some of the best security money can buy.
The hotel has been emptied of all other guests, so Trump and his camp have the place all to themselves. Trump doesn't travel lightly, he has a delegation of 1,000 people with him. This includes Melania Trump, Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and James Mattis, the Secretary of Defense. All six floors and 1,100 rooms are theirs for the 28-hour stay.
The president, Melania Trump, and Ivanka and her husband will be very well protected from any type of danger as will the rest of the folks traveling with the president today. The hotel is not only bulletproof, but it is rocket-proof as well, according to Newsweek. If the building is bombed or there is a building collapse, the suite in which the president is staying will still be standing, according to Fox News live today. The president's suite is like a box and if the building did collapse, that box would fall and tumble and although it may make for one heck of a ride, it stays completely intact.
The duct system for the air conditioning is poison gas proof, so if there is any type of poison gas attack attempt, they are safe. The sewers below this hotel are patrolled by robots, so there's no sneaking in from the underground sewage lines.
According to the Daily Mail, Trump's Israel hotel accommodations are "bomb proof," and "poison gas proof." Before Trump arrived, both U.S. and Israel security services put a lot of work into this hotel. The U.S. security crew outfitted the hotel windows of Trump's suite with RPG-resistant glass.
For two days before Trump's arrival, teams from his delegation arrived setting up 15 offices and checking out the safety of the hotel. They also set up several board rooms among the rooms in the hotel. Trump and his delegation are not only protected by the Secret Service, but Navy Seals will also be part of his protection detail.
While on the ground, Trump and his entourage travel in their own vehicles that were shipped to Israel from America. This isn't just a few fancy cars. There is a motorcade of 56 vehicles along with an armored limo that is nicknamed "The Beast."
According to the hotel's operational manager, Sheldon Ritz, "The presidential suites have independent air conditioning in case of a gas attack and are built to withstand an RPG [rocket-propelled grenade]. Despite all the security that was done by the Israel security, the U.S. sent their own security people in to install the glass in the suite where Trump is staying.
He also said that the presidential suites are built so if the building does come down, the suite will stay in one piece. So if the building does come down, there may be "a few broken bones, but they will be alive."
While all of Trump's hotel accommodations will be world class through his entire overseas journey, Ritz said at the King David Hotel, he is in the safest place on Earth. It sounds as if they've thought of everything when it comes to the president, his family, and his delegation's safety. Next time you take a trip and think you may be taking too much baggage, think of this presidential trip with 56 vehicles in tow.
