NEW YORK (AP) — New York City has lowered its cost estimate for guarding President Donald Trump, his family and their Manhattan residence.

Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill has written to New York’s congressional delegation to seek reimbursement.

He says it cost about $24 million to guard the Trumps and Trump Tower during the 2½ months between Election Day and Inauguration Day.

The original estimate was $35 million.

When the president is not in New York City, the department estimates that it costs $127,000 to $146,000 a day to protect the first lady and their son.

If Trump is in New York City, the police department puts the estimate at $308,000 a day.

The New York Times notes that Trump has not yet returned to the city since his inauguration.

    You’re both right, his pimp game is on point “LET THE TAXPAYERS PAY for giving me a job I’m clearly not qualified for, shame on you!”
    He is a complete fraud, but that’s okay because he’s white, no black man would ever get away with this, ask Wesley and Mr. Bigg.

  2. I think it’s a darn shame we have use our hard earned tax dollars to protect this President when he hasn’t paid any federal tax in over 15 year’s. What a shame. I guess pimping ain’t easy but necessary.

      • I would never support this Fraud. I have never hated anyone, but I hate this family. It burns me up to know we are burdened with supporting these criminals while they continue to Liine their pockets with our tax $,and they not pay any taxes. OMG I hate them people. That KKK Administration he has composed.

  3. Excuse me but CHUMP is a BILLIONAIRE–let him pay for his own security!
    Us taxpayers-(those that did not vote for him) should not have to FOOT THAT BILL!!!!

    Let those who want “their country back” pay for his ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
