"Critical to NY, I am pleased the Omnibus provides $68 million to reimburse law enforcement agencies for costs incurred helping to protect President Trump and the First Family", Lowey said. Congress will also cough up $41 million for security costs after Trump was sworn in.

Congress is expected to vote on the bill this week before their short-term extension passed last week expires at midnight on Friday.

"We're not budgeting for something that's a federal responsibility", he said, according to a transcript of his remarks. The new agreement, when approved, will provide that money, plus $20 million for the same period and $41 million for the period from January 20 until the end of the fiscal year.

The congressional budget deal announced early Monday will reimburse more than $24 million that the city's police department spent protecting President Donald Trump's midtown Manhattan residence and business headquarters between Election Day and Trump's January 20 inauguration.

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

The city received $7 million for Trump security from the stop-gap spending plan passed a year ago, despite having asked for $35 million.de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill continued to push for further funding, despite revising the figure for the interstice between November and January down to $25.7 million.

He used to appear alongside Kuma, a grizzly bear, who will not be cut from the game because he is, as Harada notes, " obviously stronger than a human being ".

But the Trump family setup has been heavily criticized, especially when it was revealed that the City of NY had been spending millions on security for Melania Trump and Barron Trump.

When the president visits his wife and child in the future, NYPD security costs during his visits would shoot up to around $308,000 per day, O'Neill said - the same as when he still lived at the Tower.

According to the New York Times, an additional $23 million is earmarked for the costs of outfitting Trump Tower, the office and residential building owned by the president, with "the necessary equipment and personnel, as well as to rent space inside the building for agency personnel".

Most of the costs are related to the New York Police Department.

Protecting his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Springs costs $60,000 per day when Mr Trump stays there.

New York Rep. Nita Lowey, the ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee, praised the reimbursement for law enforcement agencies that have "performed admirably, in coordination with U.S. Secret Service" to protect the First Family.
