Take on the $1 million cost to protect Trump

According to a CNN article today, it will cost NYC in excess of $1 million dollars per day to protect TeflonDon while he's in the city.  The cos isn't surprising as NYC is an incredibly densely populated city and they are keeping blocks around Trump Tower fenced off.   I walked past the building today and saw the impact it must have on the city as a whole and Trump's neighbors and Trump Tower residence in particular.  If you are running a store in the building, you can't be thrilled that nobody can walk anywhere best the entrance of the building.  Then you have the traffic which has slowed to an absolute crawl anywhere near the building and you can see the direct cost and indirect impact colliding. 

But the good news is that he'll be in DC in two short months, a city obviously equipped to handle the security of a president and his family around the clock
