$61 million set to be approved for Trump family security

Democrats Senate math problem

The government agency has explained the need as a result of the costs of protecting the president while he's on the road, and to ratchet up the security at Trump Tower in NY.

Former NYPD Lt. Dr. Darrin Porcher says the tax payer may still carry a burden if a long term solution is not in place.

According to The New York Times, half of this money will be given to the US Secret Service to protect the US President while travelling and to secure Trump Tower.

The appropriated funds will cover security costs amassed during Trump's presidential transition - when he spent weeks interviewing Cabinet candidates at his Fifth Avenue skyscraper - and travel to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida since becoming president, a Democratic congressional aide told The Post. This will help the agency protect Trump Tower in New York City and Trump family members on vacation and business trips.

If the Texans were bad, the thought process for many would be to let Watson go out and get some on-the-job experience. Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is also a Clemson alum, giving the Texans the most Tigers on one team in the NFL.

Trump will deliver a speech on the USS Intrepid, a World War II-era aircraft carrier, and hold his first meeting with Turnbull since their stormy and contentious phone call in February, when the Australian insisted the new president honour a deal cut with his predecessor in the lame-duck days of the Obama administration.

New York City had initially asked for $35 million to cover protection costs between Election Day and the January 20 inauguration, but then lowered its estimated costs.

The travels of Trump's adult children have also added to the demand on the U.S. Secret Service.

Costs rise to an average of $308,000 a day when the president comes to town.

US gay man sues funeral home for not cremating husband's body
Since the nursing home could not keep Bob's body on site, Jack and John had to scramble to locate another funeral home with an on-site crematorium.

De Blasio and NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill worked for several months with New York's congressional delegation to have the funds included in the deal, he said. That is clearly a national security concern and paying for it should be federal responsibility.

"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".

The rest of the money goes toward reimbursing municipalities like New York City and Palm Beach County, Fla., for their role in protecting Trump's residential properties.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office declined to comment Monday, but Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Fla., who represents parts of Palm Beach County, said he was grateful the county's taxpayers would not be on the hook.
