NYPD’s Trump Security Tab Through June: $42.5 Million

The New York Daily News reports:

The NYPD expects to shell out $42.5 million by the end of June protecting President Trump, his namesake tower and his family, officials said Monday. Trump’s one-day trip back to the city earlier this month, his first since taking office, cost the city $1.2 million, deputy commissioner Vincent Grippo told the City Council at a budget hearing.

Meanwhile, the city racked up $7.3 million in overtime bills from inauguration day through the end of March protecting Trump Tower, where Melania Trump and son Barron continue to live, even though President Trump has not been back since taking office. That’s on top of the $23.8 million spent guarding the tower between Election Day and the inauguration.

The city is stressing less about the tab since Congress approved enough cash to cover it, though the appropriation is nationwide and New York will still have to apply for it in competition with other spots where Trump spends his time.
