Trump’s July Fourth Event and Weekend Protests Bankrupted D.C. Security Fund
President Trump’s overhauled July Fourth celebration cost the D.C. government $1.7 million, an amount that — combined with police expenses for demonstrations through the weekend — has bankrupted a special fund used to protect the nation’s capital from terrorist threats and provide security at events such as rallies and state funerals.

In a letter to the president Tuesday, D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) warned that the fund has now been depleted and is estimated to be running a $6 million deficit by Sept. 30. The mayor also noted that the account was never reimbursed for $7.3 million in expenses from Trump’s 2017 inauguration.

Bowser requested that the White House commit to fully reimbursing the fund.

“We ask for your help with ensuring the residents of the District of Columbia are not asked to cover millions of dollars of federal expenses and are able to maintain our high standards of protection for federal events,” she wrote.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

We have actually allowed a campaign rally to stop our security from keeping our nation's capital and its visitors safe.
Unconscionable.

So much for fiscal responsibility. The right won't care, and never did in the first place.
Hypocrites. Every. Single. One.
Add fiscal responsibility to family values..........and you've got the GOP lifestyle figured out. There's not much else to say.

So all the left wing protesters that ate up the police budget are Trump's fault huh?

The democrats control the House. The House controls DC. Barking up the wrong tree taking it up with Trump.
