The video below explains the process by how the President travels anywhere and it looks absolutely insane. I hope the person that sorts it out gets paid a lot of money because there’s a lot of pressure on him to make sure that nobody gets hurt or assassinated.

That might seem cool, but in all honesty nobody even knows that dude’s name or cares what he does, and nobody is going to try and assassinate him either. Travelling around on a little bicycle reflects his importance in the grand scheme of things, and given the amount of psychos (or completely normal people depending on your POV) out there who have probably wanted to try and assassinate Trump, Obama, Bush and even Clinton, it probably makes sense to spend so much money on protecting them.
