Albuquerque’s NBC News affiliate reports:
The City of Albuquerque referred the Trump campaign to a collection agency. The city is seeking approximately $200,000 following the president’s rally in Rio Rancho in 2019.
Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller said the bill covers security costs that stem from the former president staying in a downtown Albuquerque hotel overnight. The security cost include blocking off parts of downtown and paying police officers overtime.
Most of America found out about the debt when Keller appeared on the Daily Show to talk about the bill. Despite the newfound attention to the bill, Keller doesn’t expect the collection agency to get money out of Trump.
