Because all Presidents have to be protected.

WASHINGTON—The U.S. government is paying more than $130,000 a month to lease space in Trump Tower for the military office that supports the White House, even though Donald Trump hasn’t spent a night at the New York skyscraper since becoming president.

Tip of the iceburg.  We've never had such an Entitled, High Maintenance, greedy - supposed leader.  He should at least be footing the bill for using his own resort's **bleep** golf carts instead of stuffing his own pockets with even more taxpayer's dollars.

It is pretty difficult to determine exactly what his upkeep truly does currently cost.  Tranparency has been redacted.

All should keep in mind that NY pays more into the Fed. Government than it gets back from the Fed. government. That can not be said about a lot of Reb. states as they take more than they put in. Our far right leaches off states like NY but the enablers do not understand that.

I remember watching a very good video of Cuomo down inspecting the tunnels. The video details how badly federal funds are needed to make repairs. I believe Cuomo even met with Trump to discuss the details of the funds. Trump doesn't seem to care about the bridgs or tunnels. So your right leaving New York can be costly.  Trade and lives. Just saying

Escaping New York Can Be Expensive

As residents flee New York's high taxes, state uses intrusive audits to get cash from defectors

"New York state goes to extraordinary lengths to catch wealthy residents who try to flee its burdensome taxes, leaving a gaping hole in the state’s treasury.

The aggressive approach by state tax collectors comes as the Empire State faces a $2.3 billion budget deficit that even Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo called “as serious as a heart attack.”

 

Cuomo, a vocal critic of President Trump, blamed congressional Republicans for passing tax reforms that reduced the state and local tax deduction Americans can take on their annual income tax forms -- meaning residents of high-tax blue states like New York have been feeling the pinch, sparking their exodus.

 

“This is the flip side. Tax the rich, tax the rich, tax the rich,” Cuomo said last month. “We did. Now, God forbid, the rich leave.”

 

But New York state auditors are doing their best to ensure that those fleeing the state’s high taxes will face difficulties, including being subjected to an audit -- likely to be followed by a massive tax bill.

 

New York conducted 3,000 “nonresidency” audits between 2010 and 2017, recouping around $1 billion from the practice, CNBC reported.

 

Between 2015 and 2017, the auditors on average collected $144,270 per audit, with more than half of those who were audited losing their cases.

 

New York's success rate on audits can be attributed not only to the traditional methods of investigation like going through an individual’s credit card bills, but also to new high-tech tools that include tracking phone records, social media, and even veterinary and dentist records, according to the outlet."

And of course it is the Republicans fault.
