His statement came before the Trumps announced that Melania and Barron will not be staying at the White House.
If the cost of protecting the current first family is anything to go by, protecting Trump and his family can go north of $1.4 billion a year, which is what Barack Obama's security and staffing costs.
Currently, in New York, there are 50 additional officers on each shift during the day to regulate traffic near the Trump Tower. More officers could be added, if needed, said de Blasio. He also said that while their imperative was Trump's safety, there are concerns over the overtime costs that is to be paid to the NYPD officers.
"This is a very substantial undertaking. It will take substantial resources, and we will begin the conversation with the federal government shortly on reimbursement for the NYPD for some of the costs that we are incurring," de Blasio told reporters. "We are particularly concerned about overtime costs, and we think it's a very valid situation to turn to the federal government for the maximum possible reimbursement for those costs."
Apart from the NYPD, if Melania and Barron live in New York, they will be given Secret Service protection along with Donald. The agents will also be conducting security sweeps at Barron's school every day.
