To be fair, if I understand it right the Queen already has a gold-plated, or at least gold-painted (I'm not sure which), carriage that is actually ordinarily used for state visits. The headline makes it sound as if Trump wants them to go gold-plate one for him in particular.

However, I agree that he ought to settle for whatever the security specialists are recommending; and not only because of extra cost and hassle. Bad as the situation is, I doubt it would be improved by a successful assassin.
