Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 10, 2019

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.
