Trump's return to NYC to feature WWII ceremony, protests

That estimate has since gone down (likely after Trump moved to the White House), and the city now says it costs between $127,000 to $146,000 a day to provide protection to First Lady Melania Trump and their son, Barron, who continue to live at Trump Tower.

The House and Senate are due to vote on the budget plan later this week.

Some $23m is set to be spent protecting Trump Tower and to rent space in the building. And it looks like the final bill could see money earmarked for the Secret Service and the local police departments that are bearing the brunt of Trump's protection.

A city hall spokesman told Patch "it's safe to assume" that New York City will get the majority of the reimbursement package because the city's costs are the nation's greatest.

The outlay allocates $20 million for costs incurred between the election and the inauguration, and $41 million for expenses since January 20.

Mayor Bill de Blasio cheered a congressional spending agreement reached yesterday that would reimburse the city for the cost of its security perimeter around Trump Tower.

The NYPD estimated it will cost the city about $308,000 a day to protect President Trump and deal with other related safety and traffic issues.

"We're not budgeting for something that's a federal responsibility", he said, according to a transcript of his remarks. Trump has frequently spent weekends at Mar-a-Lago, the private club he owns in West Palm Beach, spending 25 days there according to a tally by the New York Times.

"Although the federal government does not otherwise reimburse costs of state or local law enforcement for activities in support of the United States Secret Service protection mission, these funds are being provided in recognition of the extraordinary costs borne by a small number of jurisdictions in which a residence of the President is located", the provision reads.

Accustomed to traveling for business and pleasure, Trump's children have done their fair share of globetrotting as well - and as the president's family, they, too, are entitled to a federal security detail. "That's good news for our city and the hardworking police officers faced with this unprecedented security challenge".

Trump, who has not visited the city since he took the presidential oath, is scheduled to meet Australia's prime minister at the Intrepid museum before heading to his golf course in New Jersey, where he'll reportedly stay for the rest of his Tri-State visit.
