Donald Trump says his wife Melania and their 10-year-old son Barron will not be moving to the White House after inauguration. The New York Times reports the President-elect plans to spend "most of the week" at the White House, returning to Trump Tower and Mar-a-Lago on weekends. Critics say commuting Trump and his family will cost taxpayers millions, but Trump's supporters argue other presidents have maintained second residences before. What do you think? Vote below!

But commuting between the White House and his properties could create major logistical nightmares for security and traffic in D.C. and in New York. It's a huge inconvenience and an expense that taxpayers would have to pick up, and many say that is unfair.

People are also unhappy with the idea of Trump traveling constantly. Where will he find time for this? He does realize he has to work weekends, right? Being president is a massive sacrifice in terms of your mobility and personal life, is Trump ready to make that sacrifice?

While some are angry Trump's wife and son aren't moving with him, both Melania and Barron plan to join him as soon as his son completes this year of school. Is a semester's delay really that big of a deal?

But others argue it is a big deal. American taxpayers will have to pay for double security now that the American president's wife and child live separately from himin the biggest metropolitan city in America.

The optics of the president flying to one of his opulent homes every weekend at taxpayer expense may not go over well.
