NY poised to recover millions in Trump security costs

  • Chuck Schumer NYC should stop footing the bill for Trump Tower security

"We are getting what we are owed", de Blasio said. It would cover costs while Trump is traveling and security money for Trump Tower in NY, where the president's wife, Melania, and youngest son, Barron, live.

The other $60 million will go to reimbursing "extraordinary law enforcement personnel costs" for places like New York City and Palm Beach County (the location of Mar-a-Lago, which Trump refers to as his "Southern White House"). "It is ridiculous to expect local law enforcement... to bear the extraordinary and ongoing costs of protecting the President of the United States", said Representative Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) in a statement.

O'Neill said earlier this year that the city had spent $24 million on protection for Trump and his family between the election and the inauguration. Those businesses employed New Yorkers who paid taxes toward the Trumps' security up above the New York City skyline in their $100 million penthouse.

As part of the budget bill, Congress plans to approve around $120 million in funding to cover the rising costs of guarding the Trump family.

The US Secret Service spends $750m per annum providing security services for the US President and other top politicians.

Clinton blames misogyny, FBI, Russia, herself for 2016 loss
The popular vote has been a source of contention with Trump, who argues that he essentially won the popular vote over Hillary. Clinton said during her keynote address at the annual conference hosted by the Professional BusinessWomen of California.

The budget deal reached in Washington on Sunday will include funding to reimburse the city for keeping watch over President Trump's midtown tower - to the tune of $20 million for the period between Election Day and Inauguration Day, when Trump was living there, in addition to $7 million they've already received.

Around $34 million going toward the Secret Service could also be used to protect the first family in NY, and when the older Trump children take business or vacation trips.

Trump's second daughter Tiffany, born as a result of his second marriage, has also spent time in NY.

According to the news outlet, the total cost of securing the sky scrapper is $127,000 to $145,000 per day. The list of increasing expenses doesn't end there as the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office revealed it was spending an additional $60,000 a day in overtime when Trump visits the resort.

"This is an important step", added Rep. Ted Deutch of Florida to The Times. It's not New York City or Palm Beach's fault Trump has a residence in their jurisdictions. "Whatever our priorities are, the taxpayers didn't pay this money to us to protect the president".
