Protecting Trump will cost New York $1 million a day
Donald Trump’s protection will cost the taxpayer.
CNN Money said it confirmed the amount with three city officials knowledgeable about the plans for keeping Trump and his loved ones safe.
And those security costs may not go down. While Trump will move to the White House, reports say that his wife, Melania Trump, and youngest child, Barron, plan to stay at their residence in Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan.
John Miller, the New York Police Department’s deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism, said adding to the cost were Trump’s children. Miller told WCBS that local police must also protect Trump’s adult children and grandchildren, all of whom live in New York City and are also entitled to Secret Service protection.
