The $61 million in security reimbursement covers various localities including New York City, which spent $24 million protecting Trump Tower from election day through the inauguration, according to the mayor’s office.
Officials estimated the city spends $127,000 to $146,000 a day to protect Trump’s family whenever the president isn’t in town.
“We are getting what we are owed,” de Blasio said. “That’s good news for our city and the hardworking police officers faced with this unprecedented security challenge.”
Congressman Jose Serrano of the Bronx, a senior member of the appropriations committee, said it’s a matter of fairness.
“New York should not be picking up the cost for taking care of Trump Tower, especially when there’s a White House that the taxpayers already paid for,” Serrano told WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond.
But Serrano says it will be an annual fight.
“And that’s what I’m concerned about, you know, is he going to make a habit? I guess he is, of being in New York,” he said.
The $1 trillion spending plan, which includes the reimbursement, is up for a vote on Wednesday.
