Billions of dollars are wasted on maintaining the White House for the President. A leader shouldn't reap off the benefits of his country. Those billions of dollars could have been used on something else, but they all go to keeping the president happy. A true leader wishes to make his country better. He doesn't become a leader to get the benefits of being a leader.
This is not only about the USA. Every country where the leader is given unnecessary taxpayer money, should not use this system. If a leader runs for election for his own benefit, then he doesn't deserve to be a leader anyways.
If a leader runs not for the benefit of herself, but the benefit of the country, then why have the White House?
Edit: Let me reword what I'm trying to say here. I don't want to tear down the White House. It is an essential part of American history and culture. What I mean is that I don't want it to be solely for the president's well-being. The money wasted could be used somewhere else, than making the president's life better.
Should the White House Exist?
