The Secret Service is leaving its office in Trump Tower and has moved into a trailer outside of the building.
The federal agency and the Trump Organization had a dispute over the terms of the lease, the Washington Post reports. The Secret Service had a command post directly below the Trump family’s residence, but it will now be over 50 floors below.
Amanda Miller, a spokeswoman for the Trump Organization, responded to the Washington Post with a statement.
“After much consideration, it was mutually determined that it would be more cost effective and logistically practical for the Secret Service to lease space elsewhere,” Miller said.
Trump has not visited Trump Tower since his inauguration, although First Lady Melania Trump and their son Barron continued living there until relocating to Washington, D.C. in June. Because Trump Tower is considered the president’s permanent residence, a full-time protective detail will be stationed there.
The White House Military Office does have a location in Trump Tower, which costs $130,000 a month.
