Petition started to force Melania Trump out of NYC
Fed up with the price of protecting the first lady in her ritzy Manhattan high-rise, taxpayers are urging members of the Senate to force Melania Trump to relocate. Security for Trump and 10-year-old Barron, who currently reside in the president’s Trump Tower, costs an average about $136,000 daily, according to the NYPD. By June—when mother and son are rumored to join President Donald Trump in the White House once Barron finishes his school year—security expenditures could total around $18.2 million. If they don’t move to D.C., which has been rumored, taxpayers will have paid $46.9 million by the end of the year. As a result, there is a petition is gaining steam on Change.org to give them the boot now. As of Monday morning, more than 44,000 individuals have shown support.
