It costs between $127,000 and $146,000 a day for the NYPD to protect Trump's family - his wife and son have continued to reside in NY - when the president is not in town. "This budget agreement ensures the federal government meets this responsibility".

Aside from the Secret Service, the biggest beneficiaries under the agreement would be New York City and Palm Beach County, where Trump and his family have spent the bulk of their time away from Washington since Election Day. And it looks like the final bill could see money earmarked for the Secret Service and the local police departments that are bearing the brunt of Trump's protection.

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.

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.

Tucked into a $1 trillion bipartisan government funding bill Congressional negotiators reached Sunday night was a costly IOU to New Yorkers, who have footed the bill for Melania Trump to live in Trump Towers as her husband moved more than 200 miles away to the White House.

On Friday, Trump said he hadn't back to the city since becoming President because he feels "guilty" about the cost.

It's expected that Palm Beach County, Florida, where Mar-a-Lago is located, Bedminster, New Jersey, where Trump has another golf course, and New York City will be awarded the majority of the money.

Accustomed to traveling for business and pleasure, Trump's children have done their fair share of globetrotting as well - and as the president's family, they, too, are entitled to a federal security detail.

So far, the White House has not released an official schedule of appearances in the city, but those planning to protest Trump's visit have begun to organize demonstrations near the Intrepid between 2 and 3 p.m. Another protest outside of Trump Tower is slated for 6 p.m. "We are getting to a place where these businesses need to plan and worry that they won't be able to survive".

New York's Trump Tower presented the most expensive security challenge, involving heavily armed police who have had a full-time presence outside the 58-story building since the real estate mogul became the Republican nominee in July.
