Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump said if he were a Democrat, he would have Secret Service protection by now. The outspoken frontrunner, who currently employs his own security detail, said the agency should have some liability due to his popularity. “They’re in no rush because I’m a Republican. They don’t give a s–t,” the billionaire told The Hill Tuesday. Then-candidate Barack Obama was placed under protection in May 2007 while running for the Democratic nomination. “Personally, I think if Obama were doing as well as me, he would’ve had Secret Service [earlier]. I have, by far, the biggest crowds,” he said.
