Trump's company has charged the Secret Service for the rooms agents use while protecting Trump as he traveled to his properties.
Meanwhile, in 2017, at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club, the Secret Service was charged the $650 rate multiple times and a different $396.15 in 2018. At the Trump National Golf Club Bedminster, the Secret Service was charged $17,000 a month to use a three-bedroom cottage on the property, an unusually high rent for homes in that area. These details were obtained by the Washington Post through the public record requests by news organizations and watchdog groups.
Receipts and documents obtained through the public record requests also show that the Secret Service was charged a total of $471,000 by Trump's properties between January 2017 and April 2018. The total cost during his entire tenure is likely much higher since the figures from the obtained documents only cover a portion of Trump's time in office.
