"We are getting what we are owed", Mayor Bill de Blasio, said in a statement.

About $34 million of it will go toward the costs of protecting Trump through the end of the fiscal year.

It costs NYC around $140,000 a day to protect Trump's wife Melania and son Barron, who now live in Trump Tower, and as much as $310,000 when the president himself comes home to roost. Chuck Schumer, have gone after the administration for the cost of protecting the president and his family in New York City.

"The block is now unwelcoming and looks like a war zone", Democratic city council member Daniel R. Garodnick told the New York Times of the Fifth Avenue area Trump Towers is located following the election.

New York City is in line to receive the $25.7 million in federal funding it has been seeking for the cost of securing Trump Tower during the presidential transition, under a bipartisan budget deal struck by federal lawmakers late Sunday.

A show of force is already a fixture at Trump Tower, where the Secret Service and heavily armed NYPD officers have used barricades, checkpoints and street closings to secure the iconic skyscraper where the president has a penthouse apartment.

The federal government will provide an extra $61 million to cover additional law enforcement costs incurred since President Trump won. Bedminster, New Jersey, where Trump owns another golf club and is expected to spend time in the coming weeks and months, would also be eligible to apply for the funds.

Palm Beach County officials concur, as Trump's visits to Mar-a-Lago cost them more than $60,000 a day.

'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, ' according to the budget legislation.

According to James P. O'Neill, the police commissioner, New York City has shouldered the heaviest cost since Trump was elected.

Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) on Monday also applauded the funds, some of which will help reimburse Palm Beach County for safeguarding Trump during the president's visits there. "Whatever our priorities are, the taxpayers didn't pay this money to us to protect the president".
