Secret Service vacates Trump Tower command post in lease dispute with presidents company

Source: Washington Post

The Secret Service has vacated its command post inside Trump Tower in Manhattan following a dispute between the government and President Trumpís company over the terms of a lease for the space, according to two people familiar with the discussions.

Previously, the Secret Service had stationed its command post ó which houses supervisors and backup agents on standby in case of an emergency ó in a Trump Tower unit one floor below the presidentís apartment.

But in early July, the post was relocated to a trailer on the sidewalk, more than 50 floors below, a distance that some security experts worry could hamper the agency that protects the presidentís home and family.

The command post appears unlikely to move anytime soon back inside Trump Tower, where the president and his family have rarely gone since moving to the White House.

1. He hasn't been back there since the inauguration

(he probably still thinks that Obama really did "tapp his phones" and is terrified to return. )

8. I suspect his neighbors for the most part are fine with his absense. Of course the merchant

are probably sad not making extra money of trinkets, food or whatever.

10. Isn't that where he lived w/Melania? She stayed there w/Baron. He went there to "visit"

once or twice.

She has now moved to the W.H., though.

Secret Service is also engaged to protect all members of the family. So if they go there, which I'm sure they do, the SS needs to be there for them.

14. She stayed there until around mid-June

but he only went once to visit in May (where he actually went back inside the tower), and he was back up on Long Island last week, but I don't think he went back to the tower.

I do know that the SS follows the jetsetting rest of the TFEE around, but they generally all have their own residences both in NYC & in some cases, now in D.C. (and Tiffany, who had been raised by her mother, had been in college here in Philly, starts law school in D.C. in the fall).

19. I'll buy that. Once again, Trumpf proves that the only people he's ever served is himself

and his family.

13. I read where he tweeted that the TT was a dump - butt twit

"Drumpf apparently sat on his iPhone while positioning himself on his golden throne and texted out a message:
da drump dower dumpy
dumpier den der dc dump"

Of course there are no transcripts available at this point until the NSA releases the official data dump to CNN.

It's a shitty business!

15. just when you think it couldn't get more idiotic...

 

these people are crazy. they're impeding the detail that protects this asshole to siphon more money from the government.

This would merit a Darwin award, and is probably illegal.

Shit be truly cray.

in private with whoever he wants with the secret service nowhere about?

17. Good point! Russian tenants are already in the building

Am I right? He's got Russian mafia-types already living there even though Trump himself isn't there.
But contacts could be made at any time, if there's no secret service detail around to "spy" on him.
You could be onto something.

18. Well, if he doesn't want protection, who are we to argue?

Taxpayers should have never been made to pay rent at Trump Tower anyway.

If Trump can't comply with the successful, well planned protection of a President then don't protect him.

Seriously, stop protecting him.

like Blackwater (or whatever it's called now).

22. He already has a private detail in addition to the Secret Service.

Bodyguards and such. I think he gave the head of his private detail a WH job.
