Schumer, the Senate Democratic leader, inserted himself into the debate on Sunday, saying it costs $500,000 per day for nearly 200 police officers to protect Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, which houses the Trump family business headquarters and serves as the home of the first lady, Melania Trump, and the couple’s son, Barron. The senator estimated the cost could rise to as much as $183m annually.
At current estimates, even a four-year Trump administration could be heading for a billion dollars in taxpayer-borne costs
Last week, Eric Trump and his brother, Donald Trump Jr, traveled to Dubai to open a Trump-branded golf course. Estimates compiled by the Washington Post, put the cost of Secret Service hotel bills alone in excess of $16,000. Meanwhile, Eric Trump’s trip to visit a Trump-brand condo tower in Uruguay cost an estimated $100,000 in hotel bills.

I find it hilarious that a political party that was fine taking the national debt to 20 trillion dollars now has concerns about how their government spends money.
Of course, it's the new hated first family so you'd probably be a lot happier if they had no security so one of the radical left can jihad Baron.
Seriously.. it wouldn't cost so much of money that isn't yours if your party wasn't so full of hateful nutjobs.
You notice the article does not say the taxpayer footed $100,000 in lodging, it just says thats the hotel bills. The only thing the taxpayer would be on the hook for is the salary of the Secret Service and their hotel bills. $16,000 for multiple security and support personnel is perfectly reasonable.
Trump’s first month travel expenses cost taxpayers just less than what Obama spent in a year
Meanwhile, his budget proposal cuts programs for poor people.
The three Mar-a-Lago getaways, combined with the hundreds of thousands of public dollars spent on Secret Service protection during two international trips Trump’s adult sons have taken to promote their father’s business, cost taxpayers about $11.3 million over the first month’s of Trump’s presidency, according to the UK-based Independent.
President Obama, by contrast, spent an average of $12.1 million on travel each year.
