De Blasio billing White House $35M to cover Trump Tower security

De Blasio billing White House $35M to cover Trump Tower security


Mayor de Blasio is sending the Obama administration a $35 million bill for the cost of securing Trump Tower from the time President-elect Donald Trump won the race through Jan. 20 ó an average of over $400,000 a day, officials said on Monday.

De Blasio, in a press conference with Police Commissioner James O'Neill, said that he is sending a letter to President Obama laying out the costs.

He also said he called Trumpís pick for Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to talk about security reimbursement costs after Trump takes office.

That he doesn't plan to take the salary

5. well, he's paid for one day's security by giving up his salary...and it's probably a tax deduction

i bet we go four years without any release of trump's taxes

2. As well he should! He should continue the bills as long as Malania and the kid stay there,

Local enforcement costs are absorbed by the locality when there is a Presidential visit, but for an ongoing expense, it belongs to the Feds.

6. The federal government should provide security in DC

And if they get billed from NYC,Trump should have to pay that bill.

9. Did you feel the same way with Obama

 

He lived in Chicago up until the election.

Now I think Trump should move to the whitehouse after the election, but its kind of occupied at the moment.

7. Why not just step back ?




Certainly billing after the fact is a option but we know that Trump doesn't pay his bills unless sued.

What would be the reification of NYC choosing NOT to provide extra security/traffic detail/etc...are they obligated to do that?

Did McLennan County provide extra security for the Bush detail when W was in Crawford ?

I know it sounds rhetorical but seriously, what are the ramifications for New York City if they just went about their daily business.

8. HA!

Good for DeBlasio...I knew I liked him.

Melodious is too stupid and too much of an embarrassment to the US and can not be let out in public so he's ordered he and the kid to stay out of sight. How's the anti-bullying campaign going Melodious?
