No, the president should not have to pay for his own things.

Defining his things as: his home/the white house, furniture, travel expenses, phone, cable television, internet access, car, car insurance, work attire, and gifts for political guests.

The president should not be worried about his personal finances while trying to govern the country. If he is under stress to increase his personal financial standing, he may conduct behaviors that are in his best interest and not the countries.

Many of the expenses he incurs are for political business. He should not be spending his personal money on business activity unless that is part of the employment contract, which is highly unlikely.

The President unlike Kings and Queens is not born into royalty, receiving royal jewels and a palace.

It is note worthy to consider that the President like Kings and Queens is a representative of the people and represents the country when facing a global audience. He should be able to afford things to look respectable and complete affairs with confidence.
