Secret Service Leaves Trump Tower Command Post

Secret Service Leaves Trump Tower Command Post

Because Trump Tower is considered the president's permanent residence, a full-time protective detail will be stationed there.

The Secret Service previously leased space in Trump Tower just one floor below Trump's personal apartment, in order to protect the president's family.

It makes me wonder whether the Secret Service can still be advertised as an "amenity" to attract buyers, as it has been in the past.

Amanda Miller, a spokeswoman for the Trump Organization, responded to the Washington Post with a statement.

The president himself doesn't spend much time at Trump Tower these days.

But Milhoan stressed that Secret Service agents will continue to operate within the building and that safety will not be compromised. The president, by the way, has not divested from the business that runs Trump Tower.

The Washington Post noted that the president has not visited his residence at Trump Tower since his inauguration in January, and first lady Melania Trump and his son Baron left to move to Washington D.C., in June.

A former Secret Service official speaking under the condition of anonymity sees the dispute as something that can have a significant impact on how the agency operates. Backup agents will be farther away and the building's walls could interfere with radio transmissions. That space will be for the White House Military Office, which provides services including communications and the handling of the "football" that the president would use to launch a nuclear attack, the Journal reported.

But its representatives are baulking at the cost and other unspecified rental terms, reports the Washington Post.

The Pentagon is renting a 3,475 sq ft unit there for $130,000 ($100,000) a month, but it is reported to be privately owned so the Trump Organization will not profit. In an interview Thursday, Anderson said that the government didn't really try to negotiate a lower price. Which it was doing from inside the skyscraper until recently, when it was forced to move to a trailer on the street after lease negotiations broke down with the Trump Organization.

Though it's generally hard to be surprised by Trump-related stories, I'll concede this is an odd one.
